I was luckier with Now I propose the following. Any CONLANG member can send storage requests to me (, and I'll send them the instructions on how to upload stuff to Freedrive using my login. (This seems to be the most convenient way to avoid heavy e-mail attachments which may not pass through my online mailer). Please indicate in your request: (1) whether or not you permit me NOT to delete your files from Freedrive after I download them onto my computer, so that other list members can access them while uploading their stuff (default: yes); (2) whether or not you permit me to list your files in the stored files registry which I am planning to expose somewhere else (default: yes). Brief descriptions of stuff to be stored will be appreciated as well. It seems easier to give people FULL access to my area on Freedrive than to cope with the sharing setups. Accordingly, please don't alter the settings - specifically, don't change the password (12 minutes of hard intellectual labors will prove to be in vane if you do!) ;) (And please take care of any evil jokers who can potentially put their hands on your mailer during the whole operation...) Let's see if this scheme works. Basilius
