RE: e-mailing AutoCAD drawings

 agree. When I download Microsoft Bloatware upgrades at 10+mb, it usually
only takes about 45 minutes. A 1 mb zip file should take just a few minutes
even at 28.8k (which is the capacity of MSN).

I have a 33.6 kbps modem and can usually send a 1 MB file in 8 to 10
minutes.  There are several variables involved including phone line
quality, but I have never had a 1 MB file take an hour to send.  If you
would like me to test send one of your drawings, please e-mail me.
