Bandwidth is Low

August 26th, 2009

Just to let you know, I'm starting to receive warnings from my ISP that I'm at 80% of my bandwidth limit. It may run out before the end of the month.

I must figure out another place to host my images. I'm sure that's why I'm running out of bandwidth. I don't want to use photobucket as they compress my images too much. I'm not sure what to do. Blah.

So, if the website goes down before then, that's the reason why. No need to panic! haha I'll see you next month! :)

    That stinks. I host my images on Photobucket, and I don't notice much of difference–at least on my computer. My computer at work did make some of the images "pixelly" in the shady areas, but it wasn't all that bad. Also, because the layout of my blog is different than yours, I keep all of my images at 500×375 (which might prevent the compression.)

    There are other photo-hosting sites out there. You could try ImageShack or Shutterfly. I've not used them myself, but I believe they offer free hosting.

    Hope that helps! :D

    Thank you for the Shutterfly tip. I'll take a look at it. :)

    Waaaaait, sooooo does that mean that you won't be at this site anymore? Because if it does….. :cry: that really sucks. I've grown so fond of this place here :| ! Eh, well. Seeya then , I guess :P !

    Oh, no. I won't be moving the site at all just where I host the images. You won't even notice a difference. See you next month! :)

    Kara, I have an account in a hosting service (my boyfriend and I are making kinda of a Brazilian version of I Can Has Cheezburger? site), and this account have an unlimited bandwidth, so if you'd like to host your pictures in our account, contact me! :wink: I'll be happy to help! :D

    Thank you so much for the offer, Karen! That's really very nice of you. I'll be looking into a few more options first but I'll let you know if I need to take you up on it.

    Noooo! A day without staring at your images is not a complete day for me! 8O

    Aw, thank you! At least it'll only be a few days, so you won't have to wait too long. I'll try to have a little update ready by the time the site comes back up.

    Photobucket has multiple problems for us, not just the image compression. Considering our shots, well you get why. 8O

    Can't wait for the update!

    haha Oh, yes. Photobucket is notorious for being offended by pixel and dolly nudity. *rollseyes* It's ridiculous.

    Well, it won't be that big of an update, but hopefully somewhat entertaining. :)

    Well, see you on the flip side Kara! ;D I'll be waiting anxiously.

    Who knows, I might try to start up my own story sometime. I just don't know where I would host it.

    Well, you could try some of the free hosts like blogspot, livejournal or wordpress. :)

    YAY! YOU'RE BACK! WHOO HOO! :o :lol:

    Yay! heehee

  8. Ju says:

    I'm glad you are back Kara! ;]

    I'm really glad the sites are back up too. I feel a bit lost when they are down.

    everything seems fine now (*whew*)

    :up:

    Yep, I'm glad they're back. Hopefully, that won't happen again. *crosses fingers*

    By the way, I've been wondering for awhile now…:?: … when will the next Monster & The Maiden be out:roll: ?

    I don't know… :(

    Kara – did you see the new expansion pack that's coming out? I can't wait to see what you'll do with that!!!

    I did see it, Trina. :) It looks like it should be fun. I'm actually looking forward too it more than any other Sim expansion in the past.

    I highly suggest imagehack. They don't resize it like Photobucket does and rarely goes down with bandwidth for the images. They also don't mind pixel bits, unlike photobucket :D

  13. Camy says:

    Ah so sorry, that's imageshack. I type too fast :P

    ;) Thanks for the tip. I'll look into. I may have found another solution as well. But it's great to have a back up.

    Do you think my graphics card would have to be reeally strong to be able to handle the TS3 graphics :?: ? I mean, I don't have a graphics card yet, but I at least wanna be prepared for it :-) . Last thing I want is to buy the game, and then install it only to figure out my PC's GC isn't ready for it :roll: .

    Well, it would depend on what graphics card you're thinking of getting. Do you know which one you want yet?

    I got a new graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 w/ 896MB memory) this summer, but my old one (NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GS w/ 256 MB memory) played Sims 3 fine.

    I'm not sure, but I think it might be NVIDIA :?: . It's a little outdated, but hopefully it'll work out :P . Thanks Kara. I'll leave you alone now :-) .

    Will be waiting patiently for when your problem is solved :wink:
