uhm, that link is a malformed link to a local hard-drive, soooo nobody except you can access it and as it is, it doesn't work for you either.

 

how about instead you forego all that hassle and upload the icons as multi-sized .ico files?

the gimp (and photoshop probably) supports exporting multi-layer images to .ico files - you just have to have layers of 16x16, 32x32, 64x64 and 128x128 pixels

 

it's not that hard and makes icons much more portable :)

They look wonderful but you have to either fix that link or upload them here. Good work!
