Seriously, bandwidth killing is a real problem for all non-profit video/audio on the web. Potential solutions are to try to generate revenues, go Creative Commons so you can host at archive.org, or to buy bandwidth in bulk. Also, DO put a rate limiter on your uploads so that the ISP shuts them off rather than charging you a fortune when you go past quota. I got learned that when I got burned for bandwidth on a dumb web hit I created (at gonze.com/alpha.cgi). I wonder how doable it would be to create a co-op hosting service? Bandwidth is cheap enough if you buy in bulk. - Lucas > > No. > > Wait. > > I guess I'd like them to get popular, but I don't want to end up with a > huge hosting bill at the end of the month. > > At the end of this month I'll take a look at my bill and see how this > experiment effected my bandwidth usage. > > Maybe it's not a problem. we'll see. > > On Jun 27, 2004, at 12:29 PM, Lucas Gonze wrote: > > > I don't understand.
