Ahhh yes ... I actually took the screenshots in QNX as jpg's
and then converted the jpg's to png in BeOS using the native
PNG translator =;-) since I didn't have a PNG creator handy.

I just checked ... the files are indeed checked in as binary.

Anyone else have thoughts? Otherwise I'll just go through and
take another batch of shots (which needs to be done in any
case) and perhaps someone will volunteer to convert them
from jpg to png for me.
