But, on the other hand, NNTP is not designed for binary transfer of
files.  It is designed as a text only system and a method of transfering
a binary payload is not what it was designed for.  General usenet
etiquette is to leave binary attachments to the binaries newsgroups.

For what its worth, I'm on a fast connection that I pay for.  I don't
post attachments and I don't generally read posts that have them.  If
you want to utilize the technology in place to its fullest advantage,
then I'd recommend using the very fast connection you are paying for to
host a web server where you can post your attachments and have a url
pointing to them.
