The jpeg file size of a screen print saved by mspaint is dependent upon the screen resolution. Jeremy's resolution is lower than most people have theirs these days, plus it is on an older monitor which typically ran at 800x600 or 1024x768. Newer monitors are wider than that so they have a wider screen so already have more picture area with a screen print. Like my laptop is 1440 x 900.
I use an older version of Jasc's Paint Shop Pro (Not the Corel crap). It has the ability to set the compression ratio as well as resize images. For me to use my own screen shot, I have to resize down to 960x600 to get under the 100k limit. Although, It's just as easy to crop the image.
Example resized to 960x600 compressed at 20% compression = 90kb file size.
