Title: About time
Post by: Revned on October 31, 2006, 10:19:07 PM
This running out of bandwidth every single month without fail is getting really annoying. This month it was gone 5 of 31 days, so the site lost 16% of all potential newcomers. Not a good deal.

I used the time off to optimize the HTMLs (I shaved off half a MB on the Super NES index alone!) and I asked for 75 or 100 GB of bandwidth instead of 50 GB which I have now so hopefully it won't happen again for awhile...

i remember when my WoW maps were huge. heh.  At the time i had unlimited storage and bandwidth, thank god for that.  I was shipping out 300+ gigs a month. 100 of those were video downloads.

sadly i went to a new server, got like 10 gigs of storage and 100 gigs of bandwidth.  now i may send 15-20 gigs a month. heh.  bout the only times i had problems was the first or second day of a maps release and when i hosted patches.  the traffic was so intense that i couldnt access my site that entire day. heh.

I suggest that completed map sets have a torrent if they're sucking up too much bandwidth.


Dot? Dot. Dot!

That's not very practical. I'd much prefer to be able to click on links to see one or two maps from a set rather than go through the hassle of downloading a torrent, opening it, going to the list of files, finding the one I want, then disabling the rest of the images.
