On short notice...
Colourize: Hue 23, Saturation 15
Wash out the Output levels
Output levels 30/245
enter Quick Mask
Render B/W Clouds
Go into layer effects
:::Add drop shadow
Distance 0, Size 70 px, opacity 10%, set to colour burn
:::Add Inner Shadow
Distance 0, size 46, noise 20%, opacity 10%, set to colour burn
Make new layer
Fill with black
Filter>Noise>Add noise 400%
Adjust levels 223, 1.00, 247
Set to colour burn
Reduce fill opacity to 20%
Make New Layer
Filter>pixellate>Crystallize, cell size 70
Set mode to multiply
Reduce fill opcaity to 30%
Set Blend if Underlying layer Gray to 0 and 120/175
Set mode underneath to Colour dodge, reduce fill opacity to 10%
Is that something like what you wanted? Play with the settings it's a pretty decent start...

Figuring it out was pretty easy, if you've ever had to restore a large number of photographs you kinda know all those irritating things that make it a bugger, recreating some of them with an understanding of what the filters are capable is pretty easy. The settings I used were for the resolution I was using so they will vary depending on what you start with, but I mean, all those things are what you face when you're doing a restoration from what i recall from doing them. That photo would actually be in decent shape. Basically it's a touch of sun damage (the washing out of colours), a bit of deep grain (the backwards star tutorial), some weathering (the shadows layer), and some big-time drying (the crystals layers). All done in sepia (which is essentiially black and white negatives developed done on colour stock). You could add a hair if you wanted to make it look like a scan and maybe some dust and quite possibly some more basic noise at the get-go if the image seems too sharp... also quite definitely some light gaussian blur if this is the case. Some of those crystal portions could be filled on a new layer with white (because these flakes are known to flake away), etc. Anyways, that was kinda my thinking....
As to your site, yes I did go back but I can't recall much of it sorry...
