Re: egg-shell newest

At the risk of sounding like the list whinger (or de facto Mickey (with
apologies Mickey!)), here I am again with an old complaint.

Could we please NOT send attached documents to the list. This one blocked
my server for ten minutes (I'm usually only hooked on to the server for
half that time to download 40-50 messages) and what came through was looked
like code for the flushing system of a Klingon dunny. As I understand it,
most other people get a similar responce when recieving an attachment sent
from a list. The problem seems to be the sending and receiving protocols.
When you know whose computer you are sending to, you can both set up your
computers. When sending to a list, you are casting your seed on barren
ground (pretty Biblical huh?!).

So what was the news about the "Egg-shell newest"?
