Crystal Xcelsius graphics

I went to a Business Objects Crystal Xcelsius url at http://www.bobjects.com/email_imp/smb/xcelsiusedm/it/index.html intending just to capture a screenshot. Figuring that this was a flash-based dashboard, I started twiddling with the knobs and dials. I noticed, however, that the graphics are separate animated gifs, so I’ll post those as well.
