I don't know what 'too many threads selected for simultaneous upload' means. I only wanted to get a connection to try and see if I could get a connection - not upload anything. I can't get a connection at all via NOF9; in fact, it freezes sometimes when I try. I'm with Webmania and even tried their 'liveperson' help tonight. They said there was a problem with their server - although it's odd that the other night, I could upload successfully from NOF7 but not (or ever since)NOF 9.
