Rob,

As I recall, it was asked by David Gibbs that we refrain from sending
attachments to minimize his expense in maintaining this listserv.  There was
quite a conversation on this and pretty much agreed to by all at the time
because the attachments in question could be sent directly to the person(s)
in need of a piece of code or whatever the attachment might contain.  There
were also some ftp sites referenced as repositories for stuff that needed to
be made public.

I believe alot of this is contained in David's monthly guidelines that are
sent out to the subscribers to this list.

HTH

Mike Shaw
