BossHog's picture

Seems like we talked about this a long time ago, but I can't find the discussion.

I can't upload any more PDF files in the farming thread - It says I've exceeded my quota. I don't really think I've posted all that much stuff, but I don't know how to go back and find all my attachments.

Anyone know how to do this?

You need a bigger 3-point (post #190536, reply #1 of 16)

You need a bigger 3-point hitch.

Boy, that's another kick in the pants. (post #190536, reply #2 of 16)

I thought there was a way originally to get to the attachments..............but that may have been back at the old one when they .............ran .............out of room. 

Still got Ed's number?   I'd be surprised if there would be an answer to a question if posted in the editors corner-but you could give it a try.

It could be that it remembers that entire thread (sort of) and the pictures that used to be visible-perhaps still as those thumbs, I cannot remember.  That might fill up a guys allotment.

Worse case, send me the file-I'd be happy to post it for you.

Not done yet (post #190536, reply #3 of 16)

Thanks for the offer Calvin.

I ain't quite whipped yet.  I still have my alter ego profile. (BossHogLives)  The past few times I've been using it to post the updates.


I was just hoping to be able to keep my options open in case I want to post something under y regular name again some time.

I understand (post #190536, reply #4 of 16)

Sure would be nice if somehow, some way, we could converse with whomever runs this forum now.

This is like calling an 800 number and trying to understand the foreign personel on the other end of the the event they pick up.

Oh Well,

We did the best we could...

I still swear to god or hay zeus (post #190536, reply #6 of 16)

that you could post a pictiure of the carpenters helper and no one would ever know.

Certainly there's no hen posse anymore (at least here)

and even if there was, who'd answer?

Dang...there's gonna be ANOTHER revolt if the Farm Blog stops. Talk to the sysop.

Try it now, BossHog (post #190536, reply #8 of 16)

Not sure if the bolt I tightened will fix it or not, but lemme know.

Ron (bosshog) has created an alter-ego and has continued on posting PDF's in his Farming thread.  He might see this and acknowledge your bolt tightening.  Is there a limit on picture posting?  Since they come out in the forum to proper size I've not resized some I've posted lately.  I'd hate to reach the limit or cause problems with size constraints-so, is there a ceiling and am optimum size for posting?...........

except of course if I want to show some detail w/o isolating and cropping, I might still post full bore.

Yes, there is an overall limit (post #190536, reply #11 of 16)

I doubled it, but I don't know if my change actually took.

For image size, go with 72 dots per inch (dpi) -- sometimes also called pixels per inch. and roughly 800 wide for horizontal shots or 800 high for verticals. That will blow up pretty big on the screen without being too big of a file. Oh, it'll still be a big file, but it will be tolerable from a "You-told-them-to-upload-pictures-how-big?!? standpoint.

Do go (post #190536, reply #12 of 16)

Dan, I tried it today under my original "BossHog" username.  Here's what I got:

"The selected file August_25th__BT.pdf could not be uploaded. The file is 3.14 MB which would exceed your disk quota of 256 MB."

So I logged out and logged back in as "BossHogLives" and got it posted.  Let me know if you tweak things again.  I have more updates I'll be working on and posting in the near future.

Apparently I didn't really tweak it the first time. (post #190536, reply #13 of 16)

Where did you post this?

Dan, it's in the last post in the farming picture thread.

Dan, I've never seen that (post #190536, reply #15 of 16)

Dan, I've never seen that picture before as best as I can recall.


I always shrink pictures and orient them correctly before posting, so I'm pretty sure it wasn't me that posted that one.

It was a test upload (post #190536, reply #16 of 16)

I  just grabbed the first big picture I found on my desktop. This is a kitchen in Vermont that I shot a little while ago.

I'll ask the eggheads about the file limitation.

Thanks for your patience,

Give me a couple of days to try it out - I don't have anything to post right now.
