Hey guys...

I added a new theme to the gallery today, but I'm having problems uploading screenshots. It seems to have taken the first one, but now it just tells me "The Screenshot could not be saved. Please check to make sure it is a valid file type."

I'm uploading .jpg files that are 1024x768 and relatively small in size. Is there an issue with the Gallery? Thanks!

I was able to get additional screenshots up by uploading from an external url instead of my local computer. I botched one of the image paths though and now I can't delete the image.

Hopefully there's just some glitches in the Gallery today and I'll be able to fix it later.

Azure has been struggling with blob storage lately, I've noticed. I've had to retry several times when uploading my latest Vandelay, and even when it succeeded it was horrendously slow. For the moment, I suppose we'll just have to be persistent. External URLs are a fine solution too.
