Victim of my own success

Bandwidth! What on earth is bandwidth, and why am I exceeding it? This was my first thought on opening an email from Photobucket this morning. A quick read of their T&C’s clears it up, “Bandwidth is used when digital content is viewed from a link you have posted on another website”, “Free accounts are allowed 25GB of bandwidth per month. This is hundreds of thousands of images viewed via direct links and resets each month on the day you registered.”

So why am I running out, well each time my main page is viewed its 7 photos X the 11,000 views over last weekend adds up. So I’ve changed the page view to 2 until I can get it sorted.

The picture today is of another canal side house; this one is an original lock keepers cottage, complete with lock. This was just sold but I have no idea for how much for, but what a fantastic place to live, in my head I’ve already converted the out building in to a gallery and am selling cream teas to the passing boats.

It is a beautiful house indeed.

Like the posted photos by the way :)


Oh I never got a grasp of bandwidth when I had to learn about it a few years ago - total mess.

Nice pic, great song today as well.

Lovely, both the house and your mental images of cream tea and a gallery and everything.

Try using imageshack or picasa. If using picasa keep the photo sizes small so you don't exceed your allotted storage. imageshack has no size requirments but you don' get an "album" either.

sorry for my typos above

Looks like a good place to go for some relaxation. The cream tea would be good as well.

I would love to live in a place like that house! How amazing!

As for bandwidth, would you like for us to stop looking? Would that help? If so, stop taking such amazing photos!

Very nice, you should look into how much it sold for.

I want to be a lock keeper. I wish there were locks in the midwest! I could serve cinnamon rolls and coffee. Why didn't I know of such a job back when I was young???? Thanks for the great picture. Keep up the good work.

Love the photos - on both sites.
Which part of Staffordshire are you from then?
Lived in the West Midlands for three years and seen a good bit of the surroundings. Lovely countryside round there.

Be very carfeul exchanging links, is all I'll say. Bandwith isn;t the rwas deal here, it's the server itself.
Very picturesque natural image and the song is the perfect cure for the saturday blues.
