    Hi,

    I have a small personal website (from a dedicated host, no vps). At the end of every month I have a lot of bandwidth left over. I'm looking to put the extra bandwidth to some use if possible. Some way to "donate" , hosting, or mirroring. I have about 20GB bandwidth i can spare, but only about 1GB of storage (are these numbers even enough to do anything with?). If yall have some creative ideas, I would be willing to upgrade my storage or bandwidth if I find it a worthy cause.

    Thanks for any suggestions

    20gb is not enough to do any sort of mirroring.

    Noble gesture, but not worth the effort.

    I guess that just about sums it up.

    That is a good logical idea. One site is hard enough for me to keep up with though.

    You could do a small image hosting site or pastebin sort of thing.

    post 800mb pRon videos on OT will burn through some serious bandwidth, that's what I did w/ mine before OTAH closed.

    I think the server my Dreamhost account's on is the most oversold server in the world.

    :mamoru::mamoru::hsugh::mamoru::mamoru:

    Total Bandwidth Provided: 7037 GB ($0.1/GB over)
    Total Used So Far:
    3.114 GB
    Estimated Average Usage: 3.017 GB (at end of billing period) Estimated Overage Charges: $0.00

    After reading what has been said so far, I am not going to worry about it. I may try to turn it into a small image hosting site, even though their are thousands of them already.

    Thanks for the suggestions
