    Onebit.us Saved!

    We've reached the threashold to save onebit.us! Thanks everybody that donated! If you'd like to keep donating, I won't say no!

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well, it is with a sad heart that I must make this decision. The cost of running this service has increased over time and I am in a position of having to dole out more cash to keep up with bandwidth costs or shut it down to save money.

    Current costs to me are $279/month + ~$100 in bandwidth charges. Those bandwidth charges have been increasing over time and will reach the $200/month within 3 months at the current rate. Not a bad deal considering the traffic it generates (about 7.5TB / month currently), but it is starting to reach deeper into my pockets than I am willing to allow.

    I thank you all for your use of it while it was up and for weathering the outages while I derped it. I honestly don't know what I can do with the images that are currently on it. I will of course be backing up as much as I can locally, but at nearing 2TB of images I'm not sure what I can do.

    The site will be shut down at the end of this month (Sept 30th) as I will not be renewing the monthly subscription for the service.

    Again, thanks for your past patronage.

    There is one. There has been one there for ages. and ages. and ages.

      Spoiler:

    This man speaks the truth. I have had that donation link there for almost 2 years now. I have only asked twice for donations to keep it going and even then it was a trivial amount.

    If you feel there are enough people here that will donate enough, then I will keep onebutte going. Shit, I'll even update the damned thing if you want.

    So if you feel so inclined, then click that donate button. If it doesn't raise enough to cover at least a few months bandwidth, then I will refund all the donations.

    https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/websc...=62WQEFP52W3XG

    And within 5 minutes of posting the donate link one man has donated nearly enough for one month of bandwidth. I will let that man stand silent unless he wishes to be named.

    I will keep a running tally of donations as they come in:

    $356.10 donated

    just ask for contributions. i use the fucker all the time and would chip in, wouldn't even care if you got too much $'s and spent the rest on hookers (or my little pony toys) as long as it still worked.

    This is a sad day for the babe thread, but a good day for reactionary animu post haters everywhere. I'm so conflicted right now.
