Text File Upload ¶
I wanted to upload a genome, because that seemed like something useful. However, I had to compress it (four base pairs per byte) in order for it to fit the 500 kB limit.
The text input box doesn't faithfully transmit raw binary data, so it's really not ideal for this (i.e. it deletes null and special ascii characters, which removes huge sections of the sequence). Can an admin please make it possible to just upload a text file instead of having to type the text in the browser?
