    Oy! Please do not send large files to the list. This file in
    particular could have been radically reduced in size by saving it as a
    GIF file or similar format --literally more than 100X smaller than the
    original BMP file. When in doubt, just ask. Bear in mind that many of
    the non-US list members are on dial-up lines. Also, some list members
    are on accounts with file size limits. Huge attachments then become
    bounced messages which will get us tagged as a "bad" group.
    I promise that there WILL BE a facility for "attaching" large files
    directly from the archive within the month. This will allow files to
    be stored there with small thumbnails or a text link in the actual,
    distributed message thereby combining the best of both worlds (I
    hope). We can't all be experts on graphics file formats and all that
    crap, so it's my intention to make this service completely trivial to
    use with automatic type conversions (for display purposes).
    I have modified the web archive version of this message to reference a
    much smaller "GIF" format copy instead of the original BMP format
    file. So if anyone wants to see without downloading almost three
    megabytes of white background, please follow this link:
