    Re: Attachments on Nav-L list

    No Frank, It was me that objected to spending half an hour downloading
    graphs I did not want, just to get them off the server and get rid of them.
    We don't all have broadband connections and we don't all have computers
    with turbo-charged CPU's and terabytes of memory to spare. We don't even
    all have computers that have a mouse!
      With very little effort, there is no need for general attachments to the
    list. The rule about no attachments on this list is a good one. Let us
    stick to it please.
