Perhaps there is a non technical reason...
Sup, dawg ...
Admittedly the site has had very heavy traffic lately, mid-season type traffic. But I had always heard exactly what you said - that off-site image hosting is NOT a resource-hog. I dunno what TJ's thinking ... he keeps dodging these threads. I wish he'd just give us a number, whatever it is - $600, even $1200, whatever it costs to upgrade the server .. and then we could try to raise the money with a fundraiser.
Or better yet let's ask broncosteven ... he had some involvemnt in hooking us up with a server before, so maybe he has some answers.
