Default Series crossover conspiracy.......

Both Tony Gee's and Andy Graddon sites are down at the same time......hmmm. Is this a conspiracy against series crossovers? Or have the forces of the evil ISP nobbled these? Could it be the parallel nasties doing some sabotage?

At the moment HumbleHomemadeHifi is utilizing over 8 gigabytes of bandwidth per month. This results in this site being off-line when the maximum bandwidth is exceeded. I am shopping around for extra bandwidth. My provider should put my site back on-line soon. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Both sites at the same time...... eerie.

As the song goes...... "you don't know what you've got until it's gone" (Joni Mitchell I think).

It's mostly the pictures, I should think, that sucks up the most bandwidth. If you compress most of them to a higher degree, and make the bigger ones in zip format to deter passers-by, you should be able to save a lot of it.

It's not so much the actual size of the site but the amount of times it is viewed (about 400 pagesviews per day until it went off line). I have put the pages through a html-filter to remove access data, maybe I can try making the pictures even smaller.

In the meantime I have re-located some of the pages hoping to spread bandwidth this way. I won't be able to make all the alterations yet because I am also not allowed to upload until the site is back on-line. This will be on the 16th or 17th of july (I just got a reply from my provider). So please don't all view my site on friday! I need the bandwidth myself to be able to update.

Out of curiosity, have you investigated advertising as a way to fund more bandwidth? I'm about to launch a website of my own, and I fear that I may encounter the same bandwidth restrictions eventually. The business model isn't particularly strong, but I was wondering if it might defray the costs of excessive bandwidth usage.

I have thought about it, but I'm too much of an idealist - I like to keep my site ad-free. A link on the links-page is about the most I want to do.

ah...

Don't immanentize the eschaton!

Seriously, though, that's a noble ideal. Your site will never be beholden to product-"broadening" for the sake of ad-sales.

I have/had the same problem with my site -- success leading to more traffic than i could afford. What i did was get some inexpensive fixed fee space (@ mac.com) and put all the pictures in my site on it. This dramatically dropped the traffic i have to pay for (i have my own PowerMac G3 server sitting at my ISP, but have a 2 GB/month limit before additional charges start racking up)
