C'mon, guys.  Put your binaries on a web site or other location and send
the address out... your attachments are killing my BBS log time...

I don't care about JPEG's one way or the other.  I don't understand
though how this takes up so much of your time.  Are you running some sort
of program that makes you have to scroll thru the whole thing?

 (this
thing doesn't look like a windsurfer, it's just a bunch of garbage...grin)

Reading news from a line-based editor is really slow.  To save time
through a series of articles you want to read, you don't go to the list,
but jump directly to the next article.  

If that article is a binary, you are stuck waiting.  This is the low-tech
end of the world.  I use fast stuff at work, and slow stuff at home.  

Binaries should go to a binaries group.  They take too much space and time
otherwise.  pointers will do fine.
