As a wise person once said, the web is the internet for those
who are ftp-challenged. :-) The quote is from the web-ice age (1994).

I maintain the links. Being that I am a volunteer like the rest,
NFC work tends to be done when I have free time which has been rare in the
past few weeks for various reasons. With the links, I usually just add the
new links that people submit to me. I have not been very proactive about
tracing outdated links and updating them.
Sure, if you want to pitch in and help out, I really do not mind.
We can discuss more off-list.
You made some good suggestions about the attachments. There are,
of course, alternative solutions to the problem of attachments.
In my case, I have chosen to upgrade my email software to the
latest version (pine 4.10) and it makes handling of email and attachments
Of course, I don't want to stop improvements to the NFC list. But,
then, we don't get attachments from just this list, do we?
