another option is to embed the image file into your app and use reflection
to load it [you don't have to worry about deploying the image file or the
file getting removed/renamed/etc]:

1. add the image file to your project, in file properties [right-click in
sol'n explorer] select embedded resource as the build option

2. instantiate the Bitmap class w/ the image stream loaded via reflection

Bitmap yourImage = new

See if this works for you:

Bitmap myImage = new Bitmap(@"\Program Files\test.bmp")

As for responsive support sites, I've had moderate success with the MSDN
newsgroups.  It's not as good as the palm-dev-forum, but that's probably
asking a lot.  I too am curious to know if anyone has found something

By the way (off topic) when I first mentioned looking into SuperWaba, the
nice Java VM for Palms and PPCs, I mentioned a shortcoming is that the
English language support community seemed weak.  I was completely wrong
about this.  They have a great newsgroup at news.superwaba.net.  Bringing
this back to your question, I wonder: have you checked USENET for active
support forums?  I've not been a big USENET user in the past (except through
Google's interface, which is slow to mirror and only good for searching
archives) but I'm beginning to see the light.
