actually, we have the technology on the new website to allow anyone to post
anything to the new bulletin board forums and then paste the links into their
messages.  if we need to we can create a whole new forum dedicated to such
would-be attachments.  what we have can be used by all with NO delay or need
to involve others.  if you get there and run into trouble, please send an
email and i/we will help you over any initial hurdles.   michael
