I usually do. I'm in a peculiar situation now, broke and rebuilding,
borrowing other people's computers, etc. Won't last too much longer :)

How should I do that in this instance? Here's the problem: the form on the
previous page supplies an uploaded image to the second page which is then
inserted into a MySQL table. The difficulty I am having is that for some
reason it's not inserting. The form inserts the first image but not the
second. When I print out the sql query I am submitting, less the image
itself, it prints correctly. When I print out the image itself, it also
prints correctly. So I don't understand where the problem could possibly be.
I appreciate your help as always :)
