| No I'm afraid not.

| | If the answer is "edit the index.xml and remove the timestamps from the
| | monthFrom="8" dayFrom="6" and yearFrom="2003" attributes, I can do that. If

| Well not even doing so would help you, I'm afraid.
Heck, you've been supportive to KimDaBa, let me add this to the maintenance
menu. I'm completely overworked now, so don't expect to see it before, say
in a couple of weeks though.
