The costs are co-location and bandwidth... and I know there are gobs of people who host websites for very little, but they ALL limit the bandwidth. And this site gets a lot of bandwidth... Last month was actually a bit slow:
Hits Bandwidth UniqueIPs PViews Month 1,312,888 16.87 GB 118,434 565,860 May 2005
And the site allows all sorts of neat features that depend on the server it runs on... I really don't want to move it off the server to some other site... Also, there are is a lot of content (about 3 gigs) that would have to be transferred... so Co-location is best although more expensive.
But honestly the bulk of the "cost" is the time I have to put into improving and maintaining the site. Interesting code and projects keep turning up and it takes time to get them setup and linked in. I could really use some help editing web pages.
If the site is worth keeping, your donations and on-going support are all that with save it.
