RomanR, the video server shouldn't be swamped by biketrialsers but its just REALLY REALLY slow. My server has sustained 86mbps for an hour while hosting porn for a forum where there are (at any given time) ~1000 users online, but on the release of new biketrials videos I don't think it's ever exceeded 5mbps.
So how is this website supported? Bandwidth doesn't come cheap. I would assume the box that hosts this site sits at the some ISP and is connected to the backbone. What OS are you running this on? FreeBSD or some Linux variant?
The zoo video is pimp, hard to beat old school Sugar Ray too, everyone is going to be asking who sings that and no one will know.
Redhat 9, the server sits at theplanet.com on a 6gbit multiple redundant backbone (level3, Time Warner, UUnet, ATT, etc, NO COGENT).
You're right bandwidth isn't cheap, it costs me a lot to run this site, but I'm hoping the costs will keep coming down as more people come and visit and click my banner. If anyone needs webhosting I will do it for quite an affordable price on this server... I just would like to help offset some of the hosting costs.
For those of you that don't understand load averages, those are the current average times to process a request (5, 10, 15 minute averages). So as you can see, my server is currently quite underworked, and hasn't been rebooted in a month.
Maybe its the music or the editing...or the fact that I want to throw up whenever I see azn style(except for keigo arizono, or wtf you spell it, he is god)...or my hatred for zoo....but I deleted it immediately after i watched it :hs:
