Okay, started seeing some uploading problems this morning. I got an error message from SFHQ's when scanning the message bases so I grabbed a screenshot. I tried to send an e-mail to the good Commodore with the file attached but it gave another error. So...I logged into DarkForce and tried the same thing. Same result. Trying to upload the screenshot gave the same kind of error there. This was with my Win10 box and SyncTerm both times. Next, I zipped the file(s) up, thinking maybe that might make a difference (was grasping at straws here). No difference. Just for the fun of it, I switched to my Kubuntu Linux laptop and tried to upload the file to DarkForce. This time it worked. But...I noticed that from my laptops' screen, SyncTerm was reporting an initial upload speed of 56k! That dropped to around 26-28k before the upload was done but still... The point is, I had my monitor turned on for DarkForce, in an attempt to see what was going on. On DarkForce's screen, the upload was still going on perfectly, with no errors, while SyncTerm was reporting it uploaded and waiting for an acknowledgement from the BBS. It did finally successfully upload.
(This wasn't wireless, BTW - in case someone might think it's something to do with my previous D/L problem with wireless on my network)
I was just wondering if anyone using SyncTerm could try to upload to SFHQ's and DarkForce, just to see what happens. The file I was using was around 172k. Upload to File Sig 32 if you don't care. Files are auto-deleted from there when you logoff anyway.
