Random in both senses, different times & files. Not a new problem; has been around for
years though I don't know the issue number. TJ might know; I think he did some research on
this among other problems the Docs group has had.

The second problem I noted (below) is new to me. Has happened with all files I've tried so

I won't be able to upload a file BZ or anywhere for a few days. Sure wish the iPad had a personal
hotspot feature.
