Javier, you aren't allowed to upload stacks to the list, only emails. 
So if you want someone to look at your stack, you'll have to make it 
publicly accessible and direct people to it (either on a web/ftp site 
somewhere or upload to RevOnline).

However Rev has a "base64encode" function, which if you're not doing, 
it makes it easy:

put base64encode("1.234")

That's what this list is for!
