Had troubles with my last server, so recently moved....but no better here it seems, it's free host so limted bandwidth and a bit flakey on connection if I wasn't so tight I'd get myself a proper site .....
I can't even access via FTP at the moment (21.45), so may be down alltogether....if problems persists maybe Joss could put it on here, if he has the space (about 3Mb) ?
I can host them for you if you want (along with any GTR related content that anyone on this board wants storage for).
Simply log in anonymously to gtr.durzel.com and upload the media. You can then link to this from an external webpage by linking to http://gtr.durzel.com/moo (where 'moo' is whatever you called the file(s)).
Anyone on this board is free to do this, however there are the following caveats (for my own protection):
There is a 50Mb/day quota on the webspace, when it goes over this it will stop processing requests. If this limit proves to be too low, I will change it depending on demand. Note: This doesn't affect your ability to upload a file and link to it - you can still do this even if the website has gone over the quota.
You can only upload files via FTP, you cannot download them or otherwise modify them (including deleting them) - in other words you have to link to the files from an external website.
Any non-GTR content will be deleted (unless generally interesting to this board)
I'm happy to make this an official repository (assuming Joss doesn't mind).
Also, if anyone else is sad like me you can see the current throttle status by following this link.
Many thanx for the offer, I've taken you up on it....mind you like Paul I not very techie (Joss will vouch for this I couldn't even uplaod a simple pic to his site , so sorry if my attempts caused havoc on your site, lets see if works....
Long term however I must sort my site's home, any recommendations on pay (gulp) hosts ? I would need to register a domain name and need a host with say 30Mb+ (current site 10Mb but want to add more vids and stuff) so file size max 2Mb or better, FrontPage extensions, support for WMV format vids, CGI, PERL scripts, I hope to add a message Forum, bandwidth ? I don't intend to run a 'high profile' site, previously my site had around 1000 hits weekly, so very low ?, but must have reliability and good connections !!.....that's about as techie as I can get
Well, I could pimp the company I work for, JPC Infonet (check out Internet->Hosting->Shared for prices. I have no idea how competitive these prices are since it's not my department, so it is worth checking around.
In terms of reliability, speed, etc I would say we're very good - our Internet connectivity is very under utilised currently.
By the way, I've upped the quota to 100Mb/day since it's already on 13Mb!
