[NAFEX] Controlled burns

I'd like to try doing a controlled burn of some of my garden areas before I
start to turn the soil and add compost. I want to do this to clear the brush
on some new areas and on some of my trenched areas where my tiller won't
work (it's too heavy and falls in the trenches).  One of the main reasons I
want to burn is because I'm surrounded with undeveloped (or maintained)
pastures adjacent to my area, and wild morning glory and other seeds have
created a huge weed problem, especially when these come up early in the
season.  I'd like to see if burning might decrease some of these
populations.

I do know that burning can actually potentiate some seeds, especially those
with hard seed coats.  I also know I have to check the local laws.  What I'd
like to know is the advantages, disadvantages, etc.  Also methods.  I am
thinking about getting a propane torch at home depot and using that.

I wouldn't want to see ppt, pdf or excel files excluded, since sometimes I
convert files to pdf to decrease file size, plus, if people want to send
examples of flyers, brochures, logos or seed lists, they might use these
formats.

This is a good plan. I'll keep the config that way.

These are allowed:

image/jpef
image/bmp
image/png

multipart/mixed
multipart/alternative
text/plain

I need to know what message body size limit (this includes the size of 
any attachments) we need to have for the sake of those with a slow 
internet connection:
I have set it to two megabyte which is pretty big; maybe it should be 
one megabyte. Any suggestions? 2mb is a slow but manageable download for 
anyone with 3mb/s DSL and even 1.5 mb/s. Too slow for 56kb dialup if 
anyone still has this.
Ex. My attached pic of a Meyer Lemon is 225KB in size if that will give 
you any way to gauge download times.

And should I filter out .pdf (Adobe Acrobat) and .pps (PowerPoint) 
files? Yes? No?

   I strongly support blocking attachments where

The usual suspects are now filtered out, one that coud contain viruses 
or other malware:

exe
bat
cmd
com
pif
scr
vbs
cpl
zip
rar
