I'm going to be on leave next week, but I now know that at least four of you are reading my blog! WooHoo!!! So I'm feeling pressure to publish something early so that I don't have to wash the garden dirt off my hands on Tuesday to do this.

Anyway, more about Uploading to Resources...

Two weeks ago I talked about WebDAV, and only briefly mentioned Cyberduck. Now, it seems that it's working really well for people who are having trouble uploading from work or from home, so I wanted to let you know that I've got some really rough instructions written up for it, here. I'll try to improve the page when I get back. 

Basically, what you're going to do is install an FTP browser that will let you work with files and folders in Sakai, like WebDAV, but it works better. It is multi-platform, free, and open source.

Some things to keep in mind:

  1. You need to be a local admin to install it, or ask the TAC to install it for you.
  2. There is (still) a 1GB file size limitation on what you can upload to Sakai. This is a hard limit that is due to the load balancer that Longsight uses to store our data and it be bypassed.
  3. As with WebDAV, if you've ever changed the folder or filenames in Sakai, what you will see in Cyberduck is the original name of the file or folder. 

As I said, I'll be out next week, on a yard-cation, which, if you didn't know is a yard-specific staycation. See what I did there? But Dan and Kevin will be here should you need anything. Call x2020 or email
