This is a move to reduce the size of the database and optimize the performance of this site. The more pictures or "glob" files in the database the slower it performs. I have noticed a gradual slowdown on the database over the last few months. increased sizes of a database will ofcourse slow it down. but the large files attached or globs are a bigger hit and of course make the database more unstable. This is soething that i want to eliminate. I do not want this site crashing because of the instability caused by attachments.
Please understand this is all for the better of the site itself.
