Disk space troubles

Visitors to my photo gallery or music pages may notice that large number of photos and the music files are missing-in-action. This is a temporary condition, which I am working on repairing.

My web-host company fixed some problems with their disk-quota system, and immediately discovered that I was way, way over my quota. Like 5 times over. It doesn’t take too many 8 megapixel image files straight out of a Canon EOS-20D to fill up 500MB.

I had to delete many images, just to get back below quota and get things running again. I’m slowly getting the albums restored, but at much lower resolution. Some albums (including some I was hosting for friends) will probably disappear entirely.

I’ll probably have to upgrade my web-hosting plan too. I don’t think I can host everything I want in 500MB. This will, unfortunately, eat up much of my income from the Google Adsense program. Even with a tiny site like this, I was able to make a little bit of money from Adsense. Enough to cover my hosting and domain-name costs, plus have a little bit left over for beer. But the beer money is probably going to have to my host instead. Alas.

  • Making money off google adsense eh… Hmmm… perhaps if I put adds on my course WWW pages then tell the students they have to check for updates daily… I wonder….

    Ah… I’d get fired for sure.
