I'm in a chatroom to discuss writing some wiki stuff for the stack and the person I'm working with asked me to write a draft and upload it to the chat. I wrote it, turned it into a PDF, and tried to upload.
Notice that even before I try to upload it, it says "C:" in front of the file name. That's a Windows thing! Or maybe Linux does it too, I don't know. But it's certainly not how my Mac names file paths.
Then notice how the pathway is relabeled "fakepath". That's obviously not coming from my end. The path ought to be Cyn/Writing/Articles.
I also tried to upload the Word version and got an identical error.
I finally gave up and put it on Dropbox instead. But what's the scoop here? Is this a problem with all Macs or what? My rep on Chat is 14k, so it's not that.
C:\fakepathis a standard: all compliant browsers must add that string before a filename, no matter what operating system you're using.
