    I would second George's request.  At some point many dial-up ISP's will
    refuse to download the file (approx. 5MB).  A 4MB file on my machine
    requires about 15 minutes.  That is a long wait, especially if it is a topic
    one is not following and destined for the bit bucket (deleted). Personally I
    would suggest an upper limit, MAXIMUM, of 1 MB. There is not much that a
    screen resolution (72 ppi) in GIF or a medium-high JPEG that would come
    close to that limit. A higher resolution (240+ ppi) should be parked on a
    site where download is optional IMHO.
    
    Thank you
    
    Bill
