I hope that we will not run into this problem again. Although honestly I donno since I'm expecting bandwidth useage to rise as we get closer to finals. (help with projects, studing for exams, etc).

Right now we're paying $12 a year for hosting so we'll probly double our plan when the need arises (probably September)

Unlimited bandwidth costs around $25 a month (which is twice as much as we pay a year)

All of you can make a difference by not using up as much bandwidth.

agreed, if we could whore an ftp it'd ease up the bandwidth, so if your school has an ftp, instead of uploading your program to the server, give us the ftp link (the ftp must accept anonymous logins for us to access it) If anyone is a host of an FTP and would like to contribute as a mirror please contact myself, tony, or dan via PM.

meaning that instead of uploading your programs to the site, you upload it to some other server... such as your school's FTP for example and give us a link to that.

ummmm........are you guys looking for a virtual ftp or a non virtual host....coz....i have a linux box at home right now that i was gonna use ta host my own site...but it doesnt seem to be undergoing creation anytime soon.....i could use that (no promises)....or if your looking for a virtual one...streamload has alot of offers....or you could sign up for a yahoo briefcase (30 megs of free space) and make it a public account (one program on turing cant be more than like 10 KB!!....unless you made like a recreation of DUKE3D...which is prolly the best as 3D can get on turing (in fact i dont even think thats possible))... and most of your proggy's are like 2-10 KB...so yea...that might last for a while until you get a good offer....(and yahoo briefcase doesnt have and upload/download limit....5MB max file-size limit, 5 uploads at one time...and if you made it publicly accesible then everyone could upload/download...other wise...you can have ppz send it via e-mail.... you can check to make sure it is a working program and not just some scam to waste space...and then post it with authors name and other $hit.....my two cents......(if you get 3 more cents you can buy a tootsey roll @ my skool cafeteria)

ftp site is a good idea but that is olny about 2.5% of our bandwith usage. the rest is the php files wich make up the form. i have plans to either upgrade or chage the files so they use less bandwith.

we should probly start a poll on how important visual design of the forum is. Because there's a $h1tload of bandwidth wasted on fonts or some other crap. Half the page is in the header Shocked

just as long as we can keep the avatars!

lol, I wouldn't like to downgrade the forum's appearance, I think either mirroring files (having images uploaded to tripod etc.) or upgrading the bandwidth is a better path to go

avatars have nothing to do with bandwidth. All users (other then myself and dan) link to offsite avatars. And I dont really like the idea of downgrading the appearance ether. I'll see how much bandwidth we will use up today and post my thoughts on it tomorrow.
