  Happy pixel pushing and minting. Cheers. Prost.

PS: Here's the "magic" formula / script in ruby to turn all 10 000
original punks
into grayscale (or why not? yes, ye olde' sepia vintage) in less than
ten seconds:

    require 'cryptopunks'

    print "==> loading image..."
    punks = Punks::Image::Composite.read( 'punks.png' )
    print "OK\n"

    # change all 10 000 punks to grayscale
    punks_grayscale = punks.grayscale
    punks_grayscale.save( "punks_grayscale.png" )

    # or change all 10 000 punks to ye olde' sepia vintage
    punks_sepia = punks.change_palette8bit( Palette8bit::SEPIA )
    punks_sepia.save( "punks_sepia.png" )
