Oops, that 25MB filesize explains why it took so long to load in my browser
here. <grin> I should have looked at it's filesize, but I didn't suspect
that much for a one page file either. Luckily, I didn't include it as an
attachment to email, that probably wouldn't have worked at all. <grin> My
ISP allows me a 6MB filesize limit per email message, anything bigger
bounces. Of course, when we send or receive email using 1200baud VHF ham
packet radio only much smaller-sized binary file attachments are used.
Using APRS for email doesn't even allow _any_ binary file attachments!
