Lost German compound nouns found after long search

About two years ago I posted an A to Z of long German compound nouns on twitter – one every day, the German words took up a lot of the 140 characters ūüôā
For a while I had the whole list on my website, then moved it because I wanted something else. I even saved the list, but then lost it ūüôĀ
 
Well, last weekend I did some PC tidying up and guess what? I found it again. So here it is:

words?
