I just wanted to point out that there should be the capability to add backup upload server information to the project in case one server fails to respond (such as in the case of a DNS problem.
In order to prevent future problems, adding the IP addresses of the server directly instead of relying on DNS resolution would be a better approach. While DNS does allow for load balancing, under certain circumstances, load balancing would automatically be achieved by using backup server IP addresses so that, if one is busy, it will try the next.
Had this been implemented, you wouldn\'t have lost ANY data computation time what-so-ever.
This is, of course, assuming you have static IP addresses.
That\'s all I had to say.

That\'s a great point. I\'ll check with the sys admins about the IPs to see if we can do this.
