Your need to get a file transfer program that continues where it left off if the connection is lost. I'm a P.C. guy so I don't know my MAC programs.

09-30-2006, 06:04 AM
yeah, this ones says resume in the upload section. but when i push it, it starts again. so i think the server deletes unfinnished files. or something????????

09-30-2006, 06:09 AM
Possibly, but I noticed an unfinshed file in the FTP. So maybe not.

i might have to drag my pc out of the garage and load windows and all that stuff tomorrow. should take 5 hours or so, then upload on that. but if i can avoid that at all costs i will.

PC's rock! Have you closed all other programs down on the MAC>>??? Maybe wrap it in a towel while uploading like the old days (Acoustic Couplers)

09-30-2006, 06:20 AM
i've tried almost every thing, clean boot, all that stuff. maybe i should stand facing west, on one leg, while not looking directly into the screen or i might frighten it.

09-30-2006, 06:21 AM
And wrap the towel round your head! :)

09-30-2006, 06:29 AM
i don't know about that, it's a bit girly :)
dam this is killing me. i want to show people my art!!!:huh:

I've never had two more stressed full days, going to get worse, the wife is back in a minute and I'm going to have to tell her "Sorry luv, can't come to stay with your family overnight, you know that competition...." (Sounds of breaking glass, possibly DVX)

I would try another upload program, but I am a PC User and do not know which one. Search on the net, download, and give it a whirl. I hope everything works out for ya.

SmartFTP is a great program as well... free for personal use.

And windows comes with a built-in commandline FTP, if all else fails.

Got it yesterday and worked a treat, Cheers DC.
