Re: (TFT) Megahex definition

Apparently heroscapers.com does not like me linking to my thread or 
posts here.

If you're still interested go to their forum page, Custom Terrain & 
Obstacles. My thread is Grishnakh's Custom Terrain. It's stickied at the 
top. Page 120 has some superhero game photos on it.

Question for Joe:

Will this email list ever join the 21st century and allow photos to be 
attached? Or does it still eat up too much bandwidth? What about a 1 
photo per day max with a size restriction of say 50 ppi? Or does the 
issue rest with the server?

Look, I know this crops up every now and then. And I'm sure there's a 
good reason for it. But who doesn't send photo attachments these days? 
Sometimes I'd rather see stuff than talk endlessly about minutia!
