Interesting to get different people's replies. I guess different folk come
from different technical domains, where different things are easy. I had
assumed that those in the UNIX world would use tar to compress, which I
thought winzip knew how to interpret, but I guess that's not so simple.

The one suggestion which seems relatively uncontroversial is not to put txt
files as attachments, but rather put the text inline.

Some of us remember how difficult it was to find out anything about retroanalysis in the days before the public internet. I was fortunate to have had much communication with Jim Mauldon and Mannis Charosh, but snail mail was no quicker in those days.
