Looking for my old Outline Art files

Back in the 90's I won second place in the Outline Art contest with my entry The Gunth. I'm trying to find the original Outline Art files. Here's the file info from the GEnie where they were uploaded. Thanks!

A quick Google points out to this site which hosts loads of old 'shovelware' CD-ROMs. Both files are on this mirror image of the CD.

http://cd.textfiles.com/806atari/

As it's a CD-ROM I've not got, I'm grabbing the whole site as it's layout isn't great, but all being well, I'll be able to grab both those files for you.

The listing says they should be in folder 585, but when you look there's nothing in there, so hopefully it's in one of the other folders.

Thanks for the reply! I see it listed in one of the GEnie text files but I don't see any actual .ol files. Might be buried in there somewhere.

Sorry - nothing to add, just wanted to say what a great term 'shovelware' is! :D

I finally found a gunth.eps file buried on that archive site. Has the individual layered pieces like the original OL file. All I had left was a DynaCADD drawing with an outline of the entire thing. I'm still interested in the original OL or CDK file if anyone comes across them. Thanks for the help!
