Gah! Silly twerks!

File review.pdf downloaded last September is reported as pdf
But review.pdf downloaded last week is reported as PNG !!

Thanks for your help folks. I will report this to the customer services 
dept. Who knows, they might just hire a 70 year old computer person to 
sort out the mess?
