    Default Apology

    If you got caught by the OT BINARY post I just made, I apologize. It
    was not meant for r.f.cooking.

    Breathtaking. And, not to worry, posting a link is not posting
    a binary. Thanks for that story.

    She did, in fact, post a binary jpeg image file which translated to
    4600+ lines of useless ascii text. Since I know Barb would never
    intentionally do such a silly thing, I naturally assumed it was just a
    simple mistake.

    No, Nancy * I posted the danged picture here instead of where it was
    meant to go. Ugh! I canceled it as soon as I realized the mistake.

    Boy, you got that right, nb! I canceled it as soon as I realized the

    You probably, and correctly, have your prefs/opts set to NOT
    automatically open images. Most M$ and gui readers would have no
    problem with a binary image, but for users of text-only newsreader
    clients, like mine, it's a nightmare. Fifty-six hundred plus lines of
    random text takes a prohibitively long time to open.

    Yeah, I remember before I knew I could set it up that way,
    some WebTVer would post a cutesy sig and my dialup connection
    would freeze up. Extremely annoying, that's a bad combination,
    dialup and HTML. So I feel your pain. Are you stuck with that
    newsreader?

    Nobody is 'stuck' with *any* newsreader. There are always options to
    change.

    And I didn't think there were still people in the world on dial up.....
    well, maybe in the backwoods of Outer Mongolia.

    No problem, we knew it was an innocent mistake.

    If all you saw was useless ASCII text, then your newsreader is not
    set up to be able to view MIME attachments.

    Speaking of news readers, thanks for that mess you got me involved
    in over there in that other group :-) I didn't realize a couple of
    those guys were such arrogant, narcissistic, petty assholes.

    You probably just needed to click on the attachments icon somewhere
    in your newsreader. Usenet-news.net does not strip binaries from
    text-only groups. I saw it using the same server. But it was also
    posted to alt.binaries.food (what, you mean you don't subscribe to
    that? That's where all the cool people hang out).

    Surely you can have it fork an X-window, right? Granted, you may
    not want to do that. But for those in the binary group that is a
    necessity.

    I got to see it but I had to click on a link just like any time
    people post pictures here ... the pictures weren't inline. This
    is what I saw:

    A couple stories here:

    http://www.startribune.com/local/west/111165624.html

    http://www.midwestenergynews.com/201...-to-the-world/

    We talked it over and decided you're cool enough. Your invitation
    code is in the mail, but you have been granted temporary access in
    the meantime.

    It has also just come to my attention that Eternal
    September/Motzarella *does* carry alt.binaries.food in it's
    entirety, including the binary posts. So other people do have free
    access to it.

    Thanks! But, I think it was rescinded. Believe it or not, I
    don't have alt.binaries.food available. I'll drop them a note.

    You're using Usenet-news and they do have it. I subbed but I forget to
    check it most of the time. I think your problem is Microsoft Windows
    Mail 6.0.6002.18197. I noticed when I was using Outlook Express it
    didn't show all groups. I guess Windows Mail is doing that
    sporadically, too.
