Should be fixed for the media section too now.

Not that it's a huge deal, just seems silly to have a Media section when people can't upload pics

Should be resolved now. Had to increase the amount of disk space allowed to be occupied by attachments.

Still a problem, and messing with the extension didn't help.

Is that still a problem, Areya? Could it be that the extension was .jpeg instead of .jpg?

P.S. Ryouh/Nulani, any idea why .jpg's can't be uploaded?

I'm sure I've asked this before but I've forgotten the answer so remind me:  In areas where you call soda "coke", how do you specify that you want a coke?

In my experience, you say "I'll take a coke." and they say "Sure. What kind?" lol

And then you say "A coke dammit!"

But really, do you say Cola instead?  Or do you have to say Coca-Cola?  Or maybe coke-coke!  What do they do!

That's a totally different discussion!  Though I'll drink either.

It was always "pop" while growing up. But now that I'm better traveled and so much more sophisticated, it's "soda" :P

lol well I grew up in Ohio, and we called it pop. Even at the grocery store, the aisle sign said "Pop" ;) I moved to Japan, then to SC and then to Florida and I still call it pop, and my kids call it pop so NYA :P (Much to their daddy's dismay! heehee)

It's "boisson gazeuse" in French (carbonated drink), but they almost always just say "soda".

I grew up with everything being called "coke" too, even pepsi or mountain dew or anything from a soda fountain, basically. if you actually wanted coca cola, you had to clarify by saying you wanted a "coke coke" ;)

Yeah, Suji knows what I mean.

It's funny though, when I went to Phoenix on a band trip, a girl at a concession stand actually said "coke" too.  Usually it's the South where that term is prevalent, from what I've seen.

Soda doesn't really bug me, but "pop"...  *shudder*

Oh, wow! My whole state is solid blue! Well, except for a little green... since blue equals "pop" and I say "soda", that means that I am such a unique snowflake! :P

Trust an engineer to turn this into something infinitely more complicated...

I think I'd call those all beanies but I'm definitely too lazy to make sure!
