    Actually, I'll give the answer and see if folks can find them all...

    There are 40 - the offer for the link to the proof stills stands.

    I didn't look at the jpeg on a phone, only a laptop. Looks fine on a large screen, can't speak for a small one. It's not a trick question. On a large screen they're squares. Sorry, maybe a phone forum wasn't a good place for it. ;)

    Oh, nothing personal taken. But thanks. I just got to thinking that it may look really funky on a small, lower res screen.
