I would like to upload the latest version of stampbc for linux due to some recent requests.
However, I cannot attach the tgz-file as the mime type application/x-compressed is rejected
by the attachment manager.

    Zip or RAR it up and change the file name to or .tgz.rar

    While there is a fair change that it would work (unless they reject all compressed files to inhibit viruses), thats goofy, .tgz stands for a gzipped tarball.

    The Upload Manager should now accept .TGZ files.

    But then....a tarball is .tar format...which stands for Tape Archive...and it seldom actually gets saved to tape, anymore...g'figure...<g>
