Missing Logs List

In March of 1998 murkworks.net suffered a major hard drive crash which resulted in the loss of a good portion of my logs collection from the latter part of 1997 and early 1998. Listed here are what logs I know I had and lost. I do not count on getting any of them back, but if any of you folks out there might have old copies of these lurking on your hard drives and could contact me about them I’d be most grateful!
