Halo PC/CE Server Browser Screenshot?

Does anyone happen to have a really old screenshot of the server browser that shows the population, by chance? Something from around the 2003 - 2006 era? Anything even just a little after that? I used to have loads of screenshots from around that time but I've since lost mine and I'd like to see the population numbers the game had around those times.

Tiddy-bits:

Bout far as I can get back with the All-Seeing Eye website was OCT 2005

Mind you, the numbers did vary by the time of day.

I’m wondering which version of the game that’s looking at because I know population numbers were higher than that. It’s interesting to see the flux in users because around 2011, there were normally around a thousand people playing at any given time.

One thing I do seem to recall from that period was that you'd typically find 1500-1600 players in the lobby as opposed to the current 200 something in Halo PC.

I remember it being higher than it apparently was. I know I’ve seen it at 6,000+ at one point but maybe I’m mistaken.

Probably was... at that point no one was absolute sure how exactly the GameSpyX queries worked (exception for Luigi att that I know of)

 

If I had to take a guess the big version difference att was 1.04 and 1.06-1.07 due to 1.04 had the major No CD Key/Hash Check crack att for both client & server public.

 

I do remember the numbers being 5,000-6,000 at one point; was between 2006-2009 time frame. After that it was just a slow steady decline.
