Help with posting photos

I've been trying for two nights to use the seemingly simple attachment function for this site to attach a jpeg photo of the appropriate small file size and it will not upload the photo. I've tried everything I can think of, and the sailnet site will simply not upload anything. Is the system not working? Is there some secret trick? It's pretty darn simple, or should be, and I can't get it to work.

My file is a jpeg of 67KB, well within the file size restrictions, and I find it fine with the browser, and then click upload, and sailnet says: Failed to upload. Every time.

I'm stumped.

Thanks for any help,

Brian W.

Bwindrope, go to this thread and follow steps.

By the way, it is a tradition here at sailnet to post your photo as the first photo you post..

Please don't forget to post your photo...just so we know you...

I've also seen that upload function "just not work" at times. I suspect it has something to do with the different variations in the JPG format, and that some are accepted and others rejected. It isn't your imagination, Brian.
