Ok. Its not often that we get a request for this kind of thing, but
here goes. When logged into a unix system with email access, you need
to type 'elm -s "photo" firstname.lastname@example.org'. Now when it comes to the
"Copies to:" prompt, stand in front of the screen so that you get
a nice reflection on the glass. You may need to use some backlighting,
such as a bright desk lamp for this. Now, without moving your face,
press the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard (it is in the top right
hand corner of the keyboard) Wait a few seconds, and then press
return on the keyboard.
You may wish to add an explanatory message in the body of the letter
letting him know what the attached binary file is.
Let me know if you have any problems with this, or if it doesn't work
for your system. Some IBM "compatibles" don't fully support this feature,
since it is rarely used.
