Rob and Julia,

Please don't post any more pics here.  This is a text newsgroup only.  This
issue came up recently here, so you might want to go back a week or two in
the postings and read that thread if you need to know why.  This is from

**start quote**

Subject: Binaries (images, executables, sounds, etc.)

There are many newsgroups dedicated to posting various sorts of binary
files, such as images, computer software, etc.  These are gathered under
the alt.binaries.* and comp.binaries.* hierarchies.  (There are also
some local binaries hierarchies, such as de.alt.binaries.*)  These
groups are the only places where you should ever post a file that is not
directly human-readable, such as pictures, software, or even Microsoft
Word files (which are not readable unless you have a copy of Microsoft
Word on your computer.)

For more information, please refer to the FAQs in alt.binaries.pictures.d

These groups were set up so that sites could easily choose whether or
not to accept binary traffic, or perhaps to keep binary posts around for
a different length of time than non-binaries.  The average binary file
is many times larger than the average non-binary post, and many sites
and users do not want to devote resources to storing these files.

Do not post anything other than plain text in non-binaries groups.  If
the group does not have the word 'binaries' in its name, do not post
binaries there.

Thank you for your understanding.

Dan
