A lot of the links are dead.
You should run through them and take out the dead ones.

The old site is still there and it also has a big link on the main page sending you to the new site.

I updated this list with a link to the new site. :)

Hmm, looks like the helmet eyepiece links are kaput. I poked around on OMark's site: is this about what should be used?
