Subject: Re: Saabvideos.com Bandwidth statistic (500Gigs in 15 days) - We need a FREE alternative


....no, I'm not lost old fruit....just interested in Saab topics *including* your videos! Fascinating though the topic of bandwidth may be (I've had 39 years in IT), I confess to thinking that the thread was kind of drifting into a parallel newsgroup! No offence intended - trouble is with posting to NG's no-one can tell if you're having a larf....and some people will only see a joke by appointment... :o)) "Saab Guy" <nothingnospamo.com> wrote in message news:20050914184417.29f1cff1.nothingnospamo.com... > > Pidgeonpost, > > This is a SAAB Newsgroup, I guess you are lost. > > SG > > > On Wed, 14 Sep 2005 22:39:36 +0100 > "Pidgeonpost" <Pidgeonpostnospambrain.com> wrote: > >> >> "Dexter J" <lamealameadingdongnospamlamelame.org> wrote in message >> news:op.sw3ynst8ngtaownospam.eastlink.ca... >> > Salutations: >> > >> > Understand entirely - I don't charge for/shil adverts for my streams >> > either. >> > >> > So again - you need to spend some time with your logs to confirm that >> > you >> > are not being pirated and to prevent it from happening in the future. >> > Then, I guess, you probably want to look into dynamic-IP to see if you >> > can >> > feed the actual vid's from a dy-ip while still front ending the site >> > from >> > your host.
