Thats true, it says unlimited bandwith but that probably means in general, I think 6$/month unlimitd bandwith is like a stream, there's unlimited water that will keep coming, but if too much water comes down at once it will over flow (server will crash/ not handle all at once) whereas a more expensive server (how much is what Im wondering) is more like a river below a dam, and when the dam is let open all of that water flows down the river and the canal is built for all of that water, so it wont overflow.
Lol I just thought it was an interesting analogy to share since it was in my head.

Im just curious because as far as a server to store files and allow access to them, the 6$ a month seems to fit that need. I will be happy to contribute If I am aware of the costs that our money is going towards, kind of like a receipt in a way.
Im not sure whos doing the hosting, but dedicated servers are $100 bucks a month and on up from there....

well we have raised a good bit of money, we are now on the new server. as always we appreciate the member support. I dont know that I meant to talk everyone into contributing but seems the thread has moved that way some. this is all your choice to upgrade not asking or making anyone do it.

now that we are on the new server its moving great so far.

because we do not want banners and adds. its what the site was founded on and it will stay that way forever.

however it is a good way to help pay for the site but we arent doing it!
