    How long have you waited before giving up? My experience with photobucket is that it can take a LONG time - I usually go do something else while the pics are uploading. It's not unusual for it to take 10 minutes, or even more. And I have pretty good bandwidth.

    here is the message i get copied straight from safari

    Safari can’t open the page “http://load.imageshack.us/”. The error was: “lost network connection” (NSURLErrorDomain:-1005) Please choose Report Bug to Apple from the Safari menu, note the error number, and describe what you did before you saw this message.

    Are you on a home internet connection? Does your internet connection require a specific set of proxy settings or do you have specific proxy settings installed when they are not needed? :)

    Okay, I doubt it's a proxy issue then. Maybe create a new user account in System Preferences and see if the problem carries over. :)
