Yeah, I guess it does deserve another thread. I'm wary of starting it because of the time involved, but I guess I could copy and paste what I already wrote to get the ball rolling.

Leonard has a lot of interesting stuff on that site. Worth tooling around for sure. Not necessarily related to Cro-Magnon, but these are two other sites that are a wealth of information:
With the magic of the interweb I might be able to save you a few bucks.
Before the Pharaoh's:<[books.google.com]; I'd start on P.136 and go as far as it interests you and make your way to P.186 and continue from there.
Ancient Egypt 39,000BC:<[books.google.com];. Start on P.138.
I really need to take the time to resource Petrie's original research, so one of these days hopefully I'll have a link for that as well.
Both books are good, 39,000BC is better. The links here are pretty much all of the time he spends on it and the rest more of a compendium of popular alternative thought, so depending on your familiarity with the subjects it may seem repetitive to you. 39,000BC is worthwhile regardless. There isn't necessarily anything earth-shattering, but Cro-Magnon and Dynastic Race specific information is very hard to come by so personally I found thee to be an excellent resource.
The Dynastic Race is a trail worth following not only because of the physical connection to Cro-Magnon, but also the clear implication of Mesopotamian influence as the impetus for the formation of the Egyptian state. If these links save you the money and time, I'd definitely follow up with Archaic Egypt and Legend. Both are written by Egyptologists so this is good balance to alternative thought.
