Re: .torrent upload failure

I think the next step might be to doublecheck the announce URL you have in whatever app you are using to create the .torrent file.
Thank you, Jameskg, for your response. You are correct, I did check the "normal" stuff (i.e., file size (822 MG, extension spelling, and no special characters (which I actually addressed in my initial plea for help).

I also considered that url announce might be incorrect, even though I keep them in a document for my convenience and, indeed, it is the same. Nonetheless, after it failed twice, I copied it directly from the upload page specifically for this upload. No luck.

I'm sorry to be such a pill about this. I hate being the problem child (particularly since I'm 62! HA!). This is NOT the kind of challenge I like to pose...

I think I'll try uploading it again just for the heck of it. If it shows up you'll know this has, somehow, resolved itself. I'm skeptical, but what the heck.

Thank you again.
I must be a mushroom. They keep me in the dark and feed me horseshit all day.
