Friday seems to hang during uploads

If you don't have Microsoft Internet Explorer installed on your computer, Friday uses a backup FTP upload method that doesn't allow it to display a real progress indicator while uploading files to your web site.

If the web server at your ISP is busy, if you have a large FAQ or many large files to upload or you have a slow connection, uploads can take quite a while. You may just need to be patient while Friday does its work.

Note: if you prefer to use an FTP utility program to upload your FAQ to your web site, please feel free to do so.

Known bug: When using this backup method, Friday may wait forever for its upload to complete if you have another DOS window open on an FTP session. Close the session, Friday comes back.
