always "make it" when distributed. Posting as the body text is probably
There are a number of newer programs similar to uuencode, such as xxencode,
base64, yEnc, etc. WinZip should handle uue, xxe, and base 64.
Unfortunately, I don't recognize any text conversion formats in the file
types for 7-Zip. You can try posting it in it's entirety after encoded, but
some hosts still limit to 32KB messages. I.e., you may have to break the
post to 32KB segments also ... That's why sites like Rapidshare are useful.
Unfortunately, if there are some anonymous ftp's anymore that allow uploads,
I'm not aware of them. Forums usually allow posting attachments, if you've
setup an account. So, if both of you are on, say OSDEV.org, you could post
an attachment and he could DL it. Alternately, there are many Usenet hosts
that don't carry the major groups or distribute messages that allowing
posting that could be used as a "mail-drop" or "file-drop". You'll have to
search for them though, which means you'd need a list of sites, software to
search, testing of post, etc. You're probably better off dropping "free
filehosting" into Google or Yahoo and finding another Rapidshare like site.
I would ask Richard Bonner what he can handle. And, post to all four
groups, since I'm not sure where he is reading. I had to trim due to my
posting host (limit of 3).
