Nice to have this issue with the site really

Looking at the way we eat bandwidth, we will use up over half our allowance this month

In November we used: 2.06gb
In December it was: 3.78gb

This month so far has taken: 936.71 Meg

Is it any wonder though when new people join every day, and yesterday was our busiest day ever according to google

In practical terms we are with hosts who will give us a bigger package no problem

Tuesday was the busiest day ever. That is peaking 2 days running

I am not just talking about the forums here, but also the main site

Both are rocking, in fact it looks like we could be hitting 75% of our limit this month.

I may actually have to consider a preemptive hosting upgrade

Just looking at this again.

We actually hit 59% of the limit last month.

This month we are looking at hitting 100% of thereabouts

I reckon most of it is down to Tahir's posts

It's not just your posts, there's the glossary and the weblinks....

We do not really need to upgrade to pre-emtively. Remember we are on good hosts.

For example I once asked them to set up a package, and I would sort the payment detail some time a week or so later. I had no hesitation in asking this and of course they did it

As such they are not going to fine us or do anything unpleasant if we break the limit.

Yep and alos good to see that for all we might like to blame Tahir the fact is that the main site is kicking arse, and taking more and more compared to the also growing forums!

We actually only hit 79% in part due to us reducing the size of the banner graphics
