When I posted that message last month my intention was to let it go and if we reach the limit I was going to leave the site down until it reset at the first of the month. Other things threw a loop in that and I am working on those things now. As I said I will raise the limit one more time and see what happens.

    So do you think we should start collecting yet? I think you mentioned before about puting GCM on it's own server but it would be costly, somthing to look into?

    That's not enough Vic . . . you need to do more than just delete your harddrive to make sure this issue doesn't pop up again. Just follow friendly Firefighterjake's Home Computer Repair Advice and I can guarantee you'll never have problems again with that computer.

    1. Go into the shop and grab a 5 lb. ballpeen hammer. Note: If you do not have a 5 lb. ballpeen hammer you can also use a sledgehammer or wrecking bar.

    2. Gingerly pop open the case to your harddrive by whacking the case a few times with the hammer . . . if this doesn't work use the wrecking bar to pry it open.

    3. Locate the harddrive . . . hit repeatedly with the hammer until the harddrive has been rendered into small pieces of plastic and metal about the size of a pencap.

    4. For added insurance . . . repeat Steps 1-3 with the monitor and keyboard.

    Traumatizing one geocacher at a time since 2005 . . . that's my motto!

    Acctually there is a better fix, Remove the cover off you fuse box and swap the 2nd hot leg with the ground and it will fix every electronic device in your houre at the same time.... Really speeds things up

    It's noble to provide a resource for everyone that loves geocaching, w/out discriminating for motivational or financial reasons. Isn't it a bit unreasonable to expect it to be done on a budget operation? With the growth our State alone has seen in the hobby, it's only a matter of time before something drastic and permanent will have to done. The passion, activity level and integrity of most here will continue to grow the bandwidth needs!! Let's continue to encourage and remind others of the importance for the ridiculously low donation.

I resolved that but the bandwidth is still issue that is interfering with what I am working on with the support team.

    Please bear with me. I am going to increase the bandwidth once again but I have to resolve the other problem first.
    I'm just nuts about geocaching!!
