On each, except the last, attempt (5+) I was presented with an http error and no explanation of where it came from or why I received it. The only way to resolve it, or at least it seemed like the only way, was to delete the file and start over. It became a very frustrating experience to try and upload these images from my hard drive to this posting. This is not the first time I have had this problem, but I hope it will be the last. I am hoping that someone out there (Duck, Tom) will be able to help me figure out if it is something I am doing, or if there is a problem with the code that uploads the images...or...is there a better way to upload these images to the forum. Any insight, help, etc, that can be provided will be greatly appreciated and will help lower my frustration level.

By the way, In the tutorials section is a tutorial on uploading images to pM. Have a look at that and see if that helps. If not, drop me a line.
John or Duck are more likely to help you figure out what caused the problem than I am. I'm really not much on the tech stuff. If you give them the details of what occurred, they may have an answer for you.
I can give you a best guess and some possible solutions that may help.
Those good looking women in their French maid uniforms usually have good intentions, but they can be distracting and disruptive as hell.
Seriously, while we are on our computers, there is often a lot of behind-the-scenes housekeeping/maintenance going on. Our computer's operating system, anti-virus and other software, and drivers are scanning and updating more often than we realize. The same thing happens with your IP, the website software, and the host. Some of this stuff happens on a schedule and some of it is done "as needed". Most of the time, it is all done quietly in the background with little or no notice. Once in a while, it can cause problems or draw attention. It's kinda like going to use the bathroom and discovering that the maid is in there cleaning.
I ran into this a few times, where I find my computer acting strangely or have trouble getting something done. I've had my monitor act strangely and discovered that a graphics software or driver was updating. More than once, I had Photoshop running slow or act strange and discovered that my anti-virus was doing it's scheduled scan or update in the background. The same kind of stuff can occur when you are on a website.
I usually cuss once or twice, shake it off, and come back later. If I'm pressed for time and it's something that is going on inside my own computer, I'll pause or halt the background process until I finish what I am doing.
I think most of the websites tend to do their housekeeping/maintenance on a schedule. If you are frequently getting on the site at the same time of day and the same day of the week, perhaps you are doing so during the scheduled "housekeeping" time.
Again, I may be completely wrong here, but it is my best guess.
