hello,

i'm sure its noted somewhere, but instead of me having to dig for
it could somebody tell me the size limit for binary posts.

i'm writing a tutorial on a human motion include file, and a few
sample AVI's just naturally go along with it.  this would push the
size over 10MB.  most likely this is just way to big of a download
and i need to do without the demo AVI's.  and i just hate animated
gifs... i think i'd rather go with a series of stills instead.

thanks, miker

If you have access to some space on a web-server (it seems most people can
get some without having to leave thier desks), it may be a better option to
put your tutorial there then write a brief description of it and post that
here in-stead.

As one of many who has fast machines but a SLOOOOWWWW internet 
connection, I'd suggest making a smaller source-only archive for 
downloading.

Thanks!
