Do you all have a way to upload with FTP???

Have split a 4.5GB image into five sections but have had to restart 3 times (has taken like 3Hrs), and I'm about to give up. It keeps jamming up at the very end (one time it actually said 100% and when I went to hit "Save" to solidify the upload, it started over).

There has got to be a better way than HTTP for this.

There are better ways, for sure.. though its a matter of presenting the data afterwards that may prove troublesome in the Gardens current state.

An FTP server is planned for uploads, so its one of those things higher up on the list of priorities.

In our defense until we get it resolved, the Garden was probably never made for such large contributions to begin with.

I TOTALLY get it and don't mean to be a butt about it. That 10-year mark is getting brutal on file-sizes as you start to enter the Mactel era.

If current fortunes do well will try to send a donation after the holidays. This a fantastic service you all are offering. Am not always excited about the pretentious clicky stuff (i.e. "68ks were the only True Macs" ;0P but in all religions we run into that kind of thing!

These old Macs still have a lot of life in them though and as Modern Computing has taken so many Consumer-Unfriendly turns, you all have really served the common good - not only by making the apps/games available, but also keeping the memory of the good that's come before alive.

Just the knowledge, that iTunes didn't require a blood-contract at one point, puts the current "Human Cent-i-pad" crap into perspective.

It's been a thing thats being looked upon and has the second highest priority, how contributions are received and presented. We'd like to have as little manual labour as possible when it comes to uploads Tongue

Theres no need to strain your wallet, the idea is to steer clear of advertising, donations and provide a stable service. I'd say we've succeeded in staying away from the zealous war when it comes to platform / version / architecture. Everything has its use, and thats just it Tongue

When I upload a largish file, I do not use the upload button on the edit page as I too have had problems with the upload finalising properly when I do it that way. Instead, after selecting the file I want to upload, I ignore the upload button and just click "Save"
