    You can drag the photos to the grey box where it says "Upload a file".

    I have a different failure mode, in the Home DIY thread I dragged 5 different pictures into the Upload box so they appeared (with the X to remove them in the top right), all good. Hit post. No pictures.

    Edit post. Add pictures. Save. No pictures.

    Edit post. Add picture. Save. One picture there.
    Edit post. Add next picture. Save. Two pictures there now.

    Edit post. Add last picture. Save. All pictures there now.

    It works about 20% of the time for me (on Firefox).

    I regularly have to edit the post because the photos I've dragged in don't appear after first posting. Adding more than one at a time pretty much guarantees that none of them will appear.

    It's probably worse with some browsers than others.

    It's the only real part of the forum software that is unreliable.

    I've been tracking it in my own spreadsheet for ages after someone (possibly here, pointed me to beats per mile via a Steve Way article).

    Just got a new post-ankle beats per mile PB of 1479 today but:-

    • I'm fat and (relatively) unfit
    • I have a slightly smaller heart than average[1] so it can even go over 200bpm when playing 5-a-side, rarely see it over 190bpm when running though
    • I did see 1309 beats per mile a few years ago but I was still carrying 10kg more than I wanted to
    • Being heavy means cardiac drift due to increased body heat just makes my HR ramp up quicker than less lardy people

    1. According to the person doing the ultrasound check on my valves when I had a cardiac assessment by the https://www.c-r-y.org.uk/ charity back when I was (a) young, and (b) doing lots more endurance stuff

    World Running Day!

    (No, me neither, only found out when I got a digital Internet badge on Garmin Connect for going for a run earlier. Took 24s off my post-ankle 5k PB. The 10k runs are certainly starting to help.)

    It's really hard to prove it conclusively and therefore it might not be as simple as that or even true?

    Sounds an ideal job for a Yankee screwdriver.

    There is no ideal job for a Yankee screwdriver except lending to someone you don't like.

    Yeah, some total bollox being recommended to me following those (great) ogmios vids.

    Always watch youtube videos in a private browsing window otherwise it really messes with your recommendations.
