I'll second this motion!

Especially as I usually download the whole of Isogeochem both at work (free)
and at home (money)  It COSTS some of us to read this group, and I would
hate to be discouraged from being a member of any internet resource for that

The number of binary attachments here is very small.  If someone (I'm not
excluding myself) volunteered a chunk of webspace, and agreed to upload any
files to that space of general interest, it could be a good thing.

I've got huge chunks of commercial space available (ask no questions...), as
well as access to some good quality non-commercial space, but does everyone
else agree this would be a good way to go?  If someone wants a file to be
available to the list, they send it to me, I dump it onto my web server, and
post the URL and file description to the list?  Anyone who wants it then
grabs it using their web browser.

Good idea, or stinky?
