Sorry for not answering earlier. Busy times. 

I have quite a backlog of submissions which accumulated because I really did 
not want to continue the site in its current status. 

I took it over some years ago and only streamlined the process a little bit, 
but the way it is done now is just not working. 

Currently the images are done using a Makefile, some perlscripts and xplanet. 
The image on is only for the little night/day effect with the 
according cronjob. 

I am willing to give the whole package to somebody who wants to take over the 
site since I do not have the time to bring it into this century. 

There is only a slight problem with the ancient parts of the data. There was a 
line in the old forms which stated the data not to be published, except as a 
map IIRC. Thats why I did not check in the current thingie. (and the e-mail 
addresses in there :) )

Perheaps we can meet on IRC and I can explain the current workings and such, 
to whoever wants to take it over.
