paperclip -background process

I have found that it takes about 40-50 seconds from my home computer
to upload a file to my website. I have been looking around at various
blogs, regarding background processing with paperclip, but it seems all
of them involve doing only the image conversion in the background. Here
is an example:

Is it possible to put the actual file upload itself into a background
process?

(40-50 seconds for a 3MB file)

Is it possible to put the actual file upload itself into a background
process?

No you can't, your web browser must keep its window active with the
upload page, if you redirect or whatever during upload, then uploading
breaks.

However, you could use a second browser window or even an iframe to
improve the UI.

Best,
