Hello again!

Sorry for the delay. I don't have the scanner at home, so it took a
bit longer. File can be found at:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=VH9CSUME You have there 2 full snoops
(including replug), one snoop with only the scan and the details file.
If needed, I can send the archive to you in person.
