good news...attachment problem fixed

    Hi Folks
    I'm glad to announce that attachment functionality with the forums now works in all situations.
    Previously, no attachments worked in the forums. Mailing list posts that had attachments would find them stripped when they appeared on the forum, and forum users were unable to attach posts via the file upload mechanism. We hadn't encountered this problem when we first imported the archives, but somewhere along the line, it surfaced. People who use the mailing list exclusively were not affected, except for posts originating on the forums. If you must gloat about this fact, please do so silently :-)
    At some point, I'll do a post-by-post comparison with the mailman archives, and will replace the missing attachments in the forum archives where I find them missing.
    Thank you all for your patience in this somewhat trivial, but highly annoying at times, matter.
    cheers
