[bksvol-discuss] Re: Checking in a book

Ann, Tim and others;

I got stuck in Firefox 6 on my Mac tonight while talking to Pamela Hoffard and 
after 17 minutes got a failure and went to safari and it was uploaded from log 
gin in to checkin in under 5 minutes, still long, but bearable…

Firefox was always my tool of choice, but I may have t reconsider at least for 
Bookshare.
