I wouldnt think CEG runs up that much bandwidth with not much in the design/code, maybe for space since the forums are so large + archives. Hosting isn't that expensive either




No, it probly doesn't... but are you going to pay for hosting + upgrades?

From the "CEG Finances" thread sticked above... have you read it?

Yeah you know what you are talking about. Not!

The server has had rough 99.9% up time since the relocation to a COLO. We have virtually unlimited bandwidth, 100% control of the OS, and we don't have to maintain the hardware.

I hosted it for 2 years on an ailing server, prior to that it was at MMars house which had frequent power outages.

Oh and BTW the $100 a month is half what we paid before simple for the highspeed line. So we have made effort to cut costs.

If you have any more questions let me know.

What he's saying is, we used to pay $200/month for just the highspeed line to a server in someone's house...

Oh, BTW, donate if you haven't done so already!
