I've post an updated uploader.  let me know if it works (sorry I can't do better than trial and error).  I've tested an upload on my end and it works.

The speeds slow down (sadly) once the upload has gone over a certain threshold.  That is because this site doesn't get enough donations to support a dedicated server with enough bandwidth.

Can you tell us the threshold, or does it vary with traffic?

Thanks!  I am starting the upload now.  I can tell you this, with the old one  it was uploading at 89 kbs.  This one is uploading at 130 kbs.  So I like it much better already! 

While I don't do this for the money, when you consider how much these maps would cost commerically it suprises me how few donations there are.  I bet I get less than a penny per hour of work in donations.  So it does not suprise me that there are so few donations for the site.  But it disappoints me that people don't give more donations.

What would happen if the site gave away maps, but charged a membership fee to access them?  Or would that get too complicated?

How much $$ would that require?
