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!
73, Cap
