and attached a 56K BMP picture to his message.

   Peter (and anyone else who's thinking of doing something
   similar):

   Please, please, PLEASE don't attach encoded binary files (like
   pictures, etc.) to messages that you send to the PICLIST.

   Sending those attachments is a BAD idea for a number of reasons:

       1.  Many people here aren't interested in the pictures.
       2.  Even if they WANT to see them, a lot of folks can't
           decode the attachments.
       3.  Anyone who receives the digest version of the list will
           have a VERY difficult time with the attachments,
           even if his mail reader DOES support auto-decoding
           of attachments.

Instead of sending attacments to the list, either publish them on a
web page somewhere and just post the URL here, or post a brief
description of the files and offer to send them in PRIVATE e-mail to
anyone who's interested.

Thanks.

I agree.  I personally do not open any mail with attachments unless I am VERY
interested in the topic (e.g. responses to one of my questions).

I appreciate the binary attachment.  I wish I had a place to post my own
URL...but I don't.  And I wish I had time to respond to hundreds of
interested people.... but I don't.  Therefore, in the future I will also
post a binary attachment to communicate concepts when its
appropriate...which yours was.  Thank you, Peter.

Andy did you look at the ( pictures )circuit ?

How about sugesting a better way to put this guy on the
right track

I posted a practical circuit that can be used to control resistive
inductive or capacitive loads, use one PIC pin, very simple to
control, the circuit requires no calibration, is easily repeatable,
is not timing sensitive and requires no syncronization

would it not be more productive to correct the less viable/
workable sugestions

As for not being able to read attachments
windows bitmap is probably the easiest for most people
As for not wanting to, well if they don't want to learn
then why are the on the list ??

There is a digest version of this list? How do I subscribe to it?

Hey Kieran can you turn off the attachments please, the body of the message is
enough...

Some say there is no magic but, all things begin with thought then it becomes
academic, then some poor slob works out a practical way to implement all that
theory, this is called Engineering - for most people another form of magic.
