    Eric,

    Rather than sell your guns and beg for money, why don't you dump the photo hosting feature, at least temporarily. This would decrease server space and bandwidth significantly, perhaps enough to alleviate the current crisis.

    Folks hosted pictures elsewhere before you had this feature, and they'll do it again. I recall a promise you made a few years ago not to resort to begging for operating funds any more, and I hate to see you go back on that promise. Better to make 'other arrangements.'

    Just a suggestion.

    Steve,

    I doubt that would help. And honestly, I doubt many people would think of it as "begginng". People are free not to contribute.

    Steve, bandwidth and storage space isn't the issue. The problem is server load and that is caused by program-generated page loads. The only help for it would be to limit traffic, which I won't do. Anyway, the photo hosting feature hasn't even been installed yet. Eric
