Will this board ever allow attachments?

It would be nice, wouldn't it? We really need it. Every time I've patched something into the forum I've ended up having to do a lot of it manually.. patches on top of patches, etc, it's kind of a pain.

Actually it's a thought I had recently.. not long ago I purchased some web hosting. One thing I'd really like to do with it is set up a file uploading area that we could all use. Kind of like http://2a03.free.fr/, but for more than music. It would be immensely useful. If anyone could point out a particular software package I could look at, I'd definitely be interested in installing it. I don't even know where to look.

mediawiki allows file uploading... you could use the wiki if it ever launches

there are probably phpbb plug ins which add attachment functionality as well

While the forum and the wiki remain on Parodius, I think I'd prefer doing attachment hosting on another server because I imagine there could be a lot of large file downloads from people outside the NESdev community. The hosting I have probably isn't the fastest, but it supposedly includes 'infinite' space and transfers, and I would encourage it to be used extensively.

I think I will just contact the developers of 2a03.free.fr and see what would be involved in a similar setup.
