I suspect it's back because it's a new month, and what happened was they exceeded a monthly allocation of total downloads.

Seems the discussion forums are demanding. In the Insight spirit of conserving demand rather than paying for more supply, I suggest we try to cut back on our visits/posts to the forum a little bit, be brief when we do post, and before asking new questions please be sure to check the Knowledge Base and Encyclopedia linked at the top of every page.

While I whole-heartedly agree with RTFAQ, I might venture a guess that browsing the knowledge base for a while consumes way more bandwidth than posting a message on the BBS.

Try Saving for Off-Line?

One way to make less hits would be save the forum for off-line, then post after reading them all.

Also turn off your avatar. That's ~8000 characters downloaded for each person. A waste.

I don't suppose the people running insghtcentral.net are taking donations so they can get better hosting and avoid this happening in the future?? (hint :wink: hint)

Thanks to Benjamin and all the InsightCentral team for ensuring the site is back on-line. Please ensure that it doesn't happen in future - I don't know if I could face the withdrawal symptoms again! Happy to pay a small fee if it will help improve the service level from the host server.

Thanks for the kind words. We have taken several steps towards ensuring this doesn't happen again. Please see my post in the Forum Announcements section for details.

Neither sections mention whether the avatar makes that large of a difference. Will it hurt to put my avatar back on? I kinda miss it.

Don't feel bad about using an avatar. As graphics, they obviously use more bandwidth than plain text but they are well optimized and are not re-downloaded every time you see them (one of the reasons we don't offer too many choices).

Thanks for asking, and please feel free to re-load it!
