! This post hasn't been updated in over a year and I've changed my opinions on many things over the years. Deleting things I wrote years ago would be like ripping pages out of a diary so I'm not going to do it despite the fact that some stuff I've written in the past will probably be used against me during elections by UKIP hating fascists. You should read this bearing in mind that what I thought in the past might not be what I think now.

We were unable to upload this document because of this error:

Sorry, there was an error saving the file. Please try again.

This error message comes from the converter we’re using, and hopefully tells you what you need to know to fix the problem.

I got the above trying to upload a 700k Excel 2003 file to Google Docs.  Uncharacteristically unhelpful and pointless error message from Google.
