I'd first have to find a way to reliably make PS files, mind you -- the one
time I tried it seems to not have worked :(

Just add "Insert <picture name>.GIF here" at the places the pictures are
the other files. Then put all the .GIFs and .TXTs together into one zip file
and you're done...

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
