When you post a question and include an attachment like a DXDIAG.TXT, is it NORMAL to have to wait MORE than 6 hours for it to become available? This is ludicrous. You can better send attachments by snail-mail than posting here on the forum.

John,

While I appreciate your workaround, this hardly seems feasible for noobs that are requested to submit detailed info on their setup before their question can be answered, simply because a DXDIAG.TXT file is too big to quote. It gets truncated, so you have to post again and again, everytime starting where the previous quote was truncated. This is too much trouble for noobs and prevents the regulars from giving a correct answer or help to their problem.

In the past you could just post a link and you were done. Now you have to wait more than 6 hours, maybe even days for the info to become available for helpful souls. I don't think that is 'progress'. It is a giant step backwards.

After posting this answer, I'll probably have to login again, another side 'benefit' of the new forums.

sorry, maybe i missed something (and this is aside from your valid issue with queue times) but why can't you just post a link to it now? linking still works.

That was interesting! I suspect a link would be better for people reading via email. I went over to the Testing sub-forum so I could check it out, but the camera icon is ghosted there.

Excuse me while I do the testing in here (wasn't subscribed to this thread earlier).

Crap!

Again, I forgot that I do not get email notifications of my own messages. Did anybody see the three (camera-posted) files attached in the email?

I've seen it take well over 24 hours on several occasions.
