after trying to release this site, i found out that netscape and ie for mac and windows are smart enough to read the file header and properly display an image even if apache sends a plain text mimetype. but, netscape for oonix only relies on the mimetype. all of my auto catalogued photos don't have file extensions and apache does mimetyping by file extension. in effect, most of my photos were being transmitted with a text mimetype and showing up as garbage on oonix netscape. crap. after a hint from andy i wrote this little script to dump a .htaccess directive file in all of the image directories which forces apache to send an image/jpeg type. photojournal is temporarily hax0red and online.
