rec.crafts.textiles.needlework. It is a discussion only newsgroup. There
are several reasons why binary files do not belong in discussion only groups.
*One* of them is that *other* people might lose access to the group if their
system administrators decide that the group is a "hidden binary" group,
and stop accepting articles posted to that group. Binary files take up
lots of space, and many sites won't carry binary groups. Other
reasons include the fact many newsreaders can't even process the file
and so just display gibberish, some binary files can accidentally actually
cause a newsreader or computer to hang or crash, binary files greatly
increase download time for some people and so cost them access time
and potentially cost them money.
A binary file is a non-text file such as a picture, a sound file,
This is one of those things that needs to mentioned publicly, rather
than just email, so that someone *else* doesn't make the same innocent
mistake, thinking, "Oh, I saw a picture on the group the other day,
maybe I'll post one, too."
