How fast should I be able to upload

Hey All,

Has sam or someone else tried determining how fast they can upload photographs using ? I tried a couple of experiments and what I observed is that there does not seem to be a lot of improvement in throughput if I upload photos sequentially and when I try to upload in parallel with the use of a TaskFactory as shown below.

Also I noticed that if I use the code below and try to upload more than 5 pictures at a time the call to the flickr endpoint times out. so I have basically been trying 5 uploads in parallel.

Is there something I can do to improve throughput? Whats the fastest I can get it to upload?

Thanks in advance
                foreach (string file in files)
                    tasks.Add(taskFactory.StartNew(() => UploadPicture(file, title, description, tags, isPublic, isFamily, isFriend)));

            catch (AggregateException ex)
                Console.WriteLine("Exception while uploading pictures with message {0}", ex.Message);

I've never tried to upload more then on image at a time personally.Have you tried using different instances of the Flickr class - just in case there are any issues in there.
