6. The image at the above link is a .png format.

Perhaps with some appropriate software you could convert a pdf to png (or jpg or gif), then follow the usual procedures I've seen people describe on here about how to post images, which apparently involves uploading the image to an appropriate image storage site, then providing an appropriately-formatted link in your DU message to that uploaded image. I've never tried it, myself.

Good luck!

And the NYT front page from the future was both amusing and a source of hope and inspiration.
