I would appreciate very much if someone with access to
alt.binaries.pictures.woodworking would forward a complete copy of the
post with the subject "Re: Repost with a proper sized picture (1/1)".
The headers are available in the copy of the original I sent you via
e-mail this morning, however, you may have to save the .eml attachment
to the hard drive first in order to see them.
If all you need are the headers, I can see them easily and e-mail you
Sorry to put you through the extra trouble - I still have the hi-res
originals. Those were photos were downloaded from
and republished without authorization. I just needed the headers to
establish the perp's identity and posting server.
Hey, let's not get overly excited here. I don't think there was the slightest
He did repost Morris' pics, but only after trying to post his own pics and
failing. He clearly
stated in the very first message that this was Morris Dovey's design and in the
last series of posts
stated that the pictures (showing various uses) were from a previous post to
ABPW by Morris. I
looked through my folder, but did not save Morris's original post on these
sawhorses, on this
machine at least. Ther are 10-12 messages in the thread, all of which made
Morris out to be a
bloody genius in sawhorse design.
First message was :
Subject: Morris Doveys saw horse - DSC05360.JPG (0/1)
I finally got around to making one of Morris's design sawhorse. It
cost less than $10 to make. The height is right for a handsaw.
He then posted a megapicture of his work. People demanded smaller pictures, and
he was having
trouble cutting the file size and still posting something other than ROT13
gibberish. He then
apparently reposted the original pictures Morris posted 1-5 years ago with a
separate message saying
these were indeed his (Morris's) pictures from some time earlier, and even said
he hoped Morris
would see it and perhaps supply the dimensions someone else had asked for in a
I don't think he was trying to take any credit from Morris, since he mentioned
him more than he did
himself. Seemed to me that all he was trying to do was help out somebody else
who couldn't d/l his
posted pictures, and he couldn't figure out how to shrink them to proper size.
Hell maybe they were
in yEnc format, although since nobody was foaming at the mouth on ABPW and
rending their garments
about yEnc, , maybe they were not either.
Morris, if you see this, I will be very happy to forward you every note in the
thread so you can
read all of them yourself.
You know, folks, for $10 a month you can get a 20-30 gig a month d/l via
easynews or giganews for
over 100,000 newsgroups, including ABPW. Might even be something cheaper with
Lord knows 20 gigs is a LOT of bandwidth. I'd like to see a lot of you get an
account like this, as
the traffic is down a lot from a year or two ago when so many of the major ISPs
Who has free binaries? I know there are a several places that offer free text
access, but do not
know of any Usenet supplier that provides free access for binaries.
There must be a lot of people here who would love to be able to access ABPW for
free. I know
several folks who are paying just for text group access.
