    I got a serious slap in the face today, the bandwidth overages cost me nearly $150.. we have funds in reserve, but this takes a big bite out of them.

    Assistance required! :) Thanks y'all.

    Have you considered moving all of the static images in vB, and the user images over to Amazon S3?

    I did that for two client sites and it cut the bandwidth by over half--and opened up a shitload of space on the server drive.

    The problem is constant DDoS. Legit traffic is minimal.

    Is this a common problem for all sites these days or do you think it's a deliberate attack on the Island?

    Damn, I did not see this thread until today. I don't know how I missed it. I was late with my quarterly donation, so I will send another one to help get some funds in reserve. I actually send more here than my local NPR station. It's worth every penny cuz I can post cuzz woids.

    Tim, don't even sweat it. You're doing more than most, it's above and beyond.
