disk space usage is about 400-500mb. b/w fits in between 15-20gb per month. currently i have image compression on, so thats why the bandwidth is that low.

all this runs off a $10/mo shared hosting account. initially i made it so i could have a convenient way of hosting files instead of having to use ftp, but i decided to let other people sign up too, but never expected it to get so big.

since the hosting account came with lots of b/w, and i knew i would only use a little bit, it didn't cost me anything to let others use it.
