    I recently used John Sing's number board technique on a few engines and it worked great!

    The Internet Archive's Wayback Machine can be a lifesaver for things like this!

    Here is the Wayback Machine's (Internet Archive) link to my old webpage on doing the Numberboards:

    https://web.archive.org/web/20151002...berboards.html








    My old website is archived here:

    Thank the Gods for the Wayback Machine.
