Actually, Thunderbird does do yEnc. Unfortunately, it only does files
that are properly formatted. I can usually see about half of all yEnc
posts.

I stand corrected. That means that it's only MSOE that has the problem.




What problem?

The problem that MSOE doesn't decode yEnc without a helper.
Why what did you think he meant?

Michael


How can that be a problem?

Yenc is suppose to save band width. No on my computer, all it does
is
flood it with useless unreadable
garbage.



Yenc might make sense when posting songs or video
clips but when it comes to simple images I have never
seen a reason to depart from the jpeg format that
everyone can read and is comfortable with.


One more time:

Every single binary posted on USENET is encoded using some method or
another.
If you post a .JPG, you are posting it using some encoding system, MIME,
or
UUNET, or yENC or something else. You cannot just post a .JPG, USENET is
a
text-only medium and binaries must be encoded so that they look like
text
or
they will not show up on USENET. You choose to encode using UUNET or
MIME,
depending on the default setting of your NNTP client; almost all NNTP
clients
decode MIME and UUNET and yENC. Some just decode MIME or UUNET. Some
still
don't decode any of those formats at all and must rely on 'helper apps'
to
decode binaries. (And to encode them for upload) When I first started
reading
USENET, my NNTP client at the time did not decode binaries of any
format;
I
had to use a helper app.

The two most prominent NNTP clients which do not decode yENC are MSOE
and
Thunderbird. MSOE users, in particular, insist that others not use yENC
because their client won't read it. I tell 'em to kiss my ass. If you
want
to
see _all_ the pics, use a client which will decode them, or get a helper
app
which will do it for you. If you insist on doing neither, that is _your
choice_. You don't get to see certain pix. Like it or lump it.

I always figgured that those who insist on using yENC for pics were kinda
like those who put spoilers on the rear of their cars that won't go fast
enough to be of any value. Simply put for show, looks, and status....

I have limited bandwidth. I see no reason to waste it unnecessarily
catering
to luddites. yENC cuts the overhead by a considerable amount. In addition,
my
outgoing connection is slow. Not using yENC means that I would take longer
to
post. I would prefer to cut down on the time, not to increase it. Faster
connections are not available at my location, even if I were willing to
pay
more for the connivence of luddites, which I'm not. Nor am I willing to
move
to a location where I can get faster connections just so luddites can
avoid
using an efficient method. I configure my system to suit my needs. If my
needs do not correspond to your needs, then by all means apply your
killfile.
Do it now. Don't wait, as I am _not_ going to change.



I considered KF'ing you long ago but have not since you are the best
entertainment this group has ever had.




Happy to be of service.

And here I thought the last four days on the throne and the visit to
the ER for dehydration was just food poisoning...

Anybody have Dr Kevorkian's phone number?
