I've been thinking about this....
I have a friend who is already running two webservers, and (my new
email address if anyone has noticed is also from him) he has offered
me to get me an account, for free. I also beleive he is willing to host a
Birthright site for free and he should know enough to do it (he is studying
informatics) and also teach me how to run "maintenance" on the server.
This connection he is connected to is 2MBit (I think though I'm not sure
possible it's only 64KBit), and there is now limits on users and etc. That
is he is offering the same service to several friends and as long we don't
take ALL the bandwidth he doesn't mind. Currently he has set about 5MB
as the limit, but this is to conserve disk space a bit, and is more a
guideline than a rule (i. e. 6-7MB np, permanently 35MB probably not)
I'll call this friend of mine today and ask him "officially" if there isn't
questions or problems, from any of you.
So please answer to the list or personally what you think ?
