I know that John means well, but I must ask you *all* to please refrain
from sending email attachments to the Lists. Sure, it's only 20 kBytes.
But multiply that by 200 recipients on one list, and 60 on the other, and
you're up to over 5 MBytes put out into the 'net. And even a 20 kByte file
will cost the person in the third world with a 1200 Baud connection a
pretty penny, if paying for connect time by the minute. Finally, those of
our users confined to Macintosh, DOS, or Unix boxes can't use an Excel for
Windows spreadsheet anyway!
The best way to handle such spreadsheets is to describe them to the list,
and forward them to individuals who so request. Or send them to me, and I
will post them to the website, where anyone who wishes may download them.
Thanks, all, for your participation, and cooperation.
