This SAE paper is really the basis of research for all VW Diesel engines.  It's ultra-cool, and also ultra-big.  I scanned it into one .pdf file that's 20MB!  Who wants it?  :)  I have no problems sending large attachments (broadband connection).  But I can't put it online for you guys as currently I've only got 15MB free web storage space so it won't fit.  Anyone have some web storage space they can host it at for the rest of the board to access?

Another option is I can re-scan it, separating the pictures from the text.  Type the text in as HTML and scan the figures&illustration in as separate JPEGS.  Then it might fit on my 15MB limit.  But for now, I've just got one huge PDF file.  (It was easier to scan in everything that way.)

Larry - tried e-mailing it to you, but I guess I do have some limit for how large of an e-mail I am allowed to send!  :(

Anyone have an upload point on the web where I can upload it directly?

Other idea is when I get the chance, I will scan the pics individually as JPEGs and write the text into HTML.  (I'd like to eventually do this so we can link to individual images anyway, even though it will take a while.)

Wholy moly!!  Author of the paper is "P. Hofbauer and K. Sator, Volkswagenwerk AG"!  He must have been a walking diesel encyclopedia of knowledge.

That is a great idea!  Don't know if the image data is compressed or not inside the .pdf but it's worth a shot!  I will try that and maybe e-mail it, or maybe post it zipped on my website (if it's under 15 megs) for all to download.

Edit: Just tried zipping it and it must already be in a compressed internal format - as zipping it only lopped off about 200KB.

Dang!

I could set you up an FTP account for one of my sites if I knew how. I don't quite understand the whole FTP thing.

Ug.  This is not working out very well... I tried uploading the file to a yahoo group, but then after a few minutes of progress, right when I thought it might work, it stops and comes back with the message "You may only upload files smaller than 5120K."   :x

Jake, the reality is that almost no one is going to give you that much disk space for one file, other than on an FTB basis. I suggest you break the file up into about 10 subfiles and post them. that way it is easier on you as well as on all of us when we try to download them.

And my offer (see PM) still stands... :D
