You feeling contused and confused from DA’s latest?

Just some etiquette: don’t provide direct answers or super-direct hints to any of the clues. Allow the solver to solve the clue with a little nudge in the right direction rather than providing a lift via teleporter directly to the destination.
By Monday, though, it’s open slather.

Anyway, in case you missed it, here’s DA’s crossword from yesterday:
BT kindly sent through the Fairfax cryptic crossword files from 2004 to 2009 all zipped up and ready to go. These files can be read by Across Lite.
I’ve only just discovered that the motherlode of Fairfax cryptics from as far back as 2004 is no longer available.
I managed to save all the DA cryptics and have them available from this site, as outlined in the link above. I thought I had done the same thing with the rest of the Fairfax cryptics, but, in fact, no, I hadn’t.
So I’m wondering: did anyone manage to save all those Fairfax cryptics that were available? If so, would anyone care to send them to me so that I can host them from this site?
