    That's not a solution. You clearly don't understand what the problem is. What's going to have to happen is that more place host the files. Spread the load out over 5, 6, or more repositories.

    I hate it when shared hosting companies do this. The owner of virtalnes.com had to find new hosting for the same reason, even though he wasnt over his bandwidth. :(

    If 3 or 4 other people step up and assist, I will be happy to share the cost of hosting.

    PM me.

    This is supposed to be a community, after all :)

    600 dollars on shared hosting?

    plus i go on his site and see a ChipIn widget to replace his laptop. . .2,400 dollars could go a long way towards private hosting

    I talked to the owner there not closing but they could use donations so they dont have to spend tons of money. The apps are for the ipod touch since the iphone already has them all. It just says dont use on Ipod for liability.

    The apps are great Im going to donate since I didnt have to spend $20 to pay apple.

    Looks like he is working with Nullriver to work out ways to lessen the load.
