Just wanted viewers here to know that I've managed to resubmit my essay, "Taking Care of Business," and it now resides in my gallery here in a newer version (reflecting some more careful proofing).
Oh, and as an FYI, I strongly suspect that the problem I was having with dA's warning about inapplicable formatting was due to my attempt to use Safari's new "private page" feature, which somehow must block certain format transfers and uploads to dA's site. When I switched back to a normal Sarafi page, I had no problem. dA's tech support did not provide me with this solution (what else is new?); instead, I stumbled upon it after thinking through the various compatibility messages I was getting as I configured the file as a pdf. I do not pretend to know the technical ins and outs of this, and perhaps one of you could provide us all with some technical (or technological) enlightenment.
If this discovery helps anyone else, then my suffering shall not have been in vain.
In any case, please feel free to access the essay now.
Regards to all.
