In the computing world, MIME is not a word for a silent clown who often becomes trapped inside invisible boxes. Instead, it means Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension -- abbreviated as both ". mime" and ".mme" -- and it is a specification that allows non-text e-mail attachments (such as pictures and video files, among others) to be sent over the Internet. Without MIME, you wouldn't be able to e-mail a picture of your new puppy to your best friend in Boulder.
