I would really miss John Lowes godzilla pics but if they make the difference between the forum being up or down, we should try not to post them unless necessary!
Will try and find somewhere to put my piccys in future.
few ways to save bw that i use on the sdu forums
- use mod_gzip to compress all pages generated (only compresses the text but it still saves around 30% on average)
- turn off autodisplay of attachments, this way the pictures aren't loaded each time the thread is displayed. this saved a considerable amount of bw for us, and reduced the cpu load on the server quite a bit.
You guys should just chip in for the use of more bandwidth. Myself and another guy turned our 200sx BB into the BB for the newly started 200sx Owners Club and thus charged people for membership, which is paying for the BB as well as membership cards, tax disc holers, and URL car stickers. On top of this, we nogotiated deals with many tuning companies and suppliers for our members.
