Sorry I have not provided a decent update but an eye op yesterday made it a bit difficult for me to see http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Right the current situation is as follows -

We have been having a love/hate relationship with our hosting company over the last few months for a variety of reasons and I have fortunately being exploring other possibilities http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Last week for some reason we well and truly hammered there bandwidth again (unlike the last time I cannot see what was so popular to flood them) so the Network Admins there turned us off to prevent us dragging down every other site they host and they host a lot. They have been slightly reluctant in giving permission for us to turn back on but I am currently seeking permission to restart the site without the file library for now.

In the meantime we are building a complete new server/service with Cess_Ro and Cess_Harpoon where we will have no space restrictions and no issue with the bandwidth we have (as we run it) although the pipe to the server will be smaller. This is going to take us a couple of days to achieve.

We have actually been working at this solution for about a month now and were planning to switch anyway but various issues such as Win2003 and diggers through fibre connections has delayed our transition.

How much bandwidth do you need?

Hope your eye is better soon http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
