Hello

My program is supposed to "remove" odd indices from a linked list (with the index starting from 1, and the last address of the linked list being 0):

The program should print out 13579, but it instead prints out 13268501024526850100872685009929.

I know assembly is tedious as hell, but I have been struggling with this for a while, so if there is any expert out there who can spot my error(s) quickly, that would be totally awesome.

In case it is not obvious, I am trying to translate the (working) C code into MIPS.
