Could have been, I have no memory - but it's something I'd
likely tell someone.

If your image-converting program is smart, it will let you
use a 0..255 grey palette for a GIF. If it's true line-art with
no greys, it'll have better compression with almost any palette
that has a black and a white in it.

And I'm extremely jealous of that computer. :-) It gives me
flashbacks to glorious old '50s junk I'd find in dumpsters or
auctions or rummage sales and disassemble.
