the tig is normally, and frequently (3 or 4 times today so
far) rejecting messages with attachments, according to the
rules and notes I published here in February as "tighter
filtering on the tig" at

what is happening here though is interesting in that one can
become too clever: Peter?s posts to the TIG he normally
sends to tig-admin first for historical reasons, and I (or
Dave Tosh) then send them back out to the group, and put
images etc. in the proper space on the TIG webpages.  But
this week in trying to get through a mountain of backlogged
work (or is that a logjam of work piled high) I didn?t look
closely enough at Peter?s message which when forwarded out
(actually just system-bounced) then didn?t trip the filter 
for attachments etc.  and it went out all weird, sorry about
