What's this image?

The first image

This is one of the first images taken with the scanner driver in its very early (very hacky) form. At the time we didn't understand gamma tables, calibration, the checksums, or even the image format.. It looks weird because we were using what looked like 8-bit pixels, which was actually discarding the high 2 bits of each piexel, and using the lower 8 bits. Hence, anything not-white appears a bit weird.
