Bandwidth Limit Exceeded

The DMotR comics are down. It seems that the comic’s ravenous appetite for bandwidth has finally caught up with it, and has been placed on a diet. I think the limit was 300GB of transfer. Yikes.

I expect the bandwidth meter to reset at the onset of October, so we should be back up and running in a couple of days. The comic is finally cooling down now that I’m no longer posting new ones, so I don’t think this will happen again.

LATER: Looks like it’s all better now. Still, if you’re going to run out of bandwidth, eighteen hours before the meter resets is a really good time to do so.

    *looks all sheepish*Oops, sorry. I shouldn’t have read it again for the n’th time…

    Damn, I wondered what had happened – I was in the middle of reading through the comics after being sent the link a couple of days back. Roll on service being restored, I can’t wait to finish reading them, absolutely fantastic!!!

    Now that your comic is finished, maybe you could pack it all up into a *.cbr file and offer it on the page as a download? Just a thought, because what has stopped me from re-read the comic is the thought of having to wait for the browser for each page… :)

    The CBR thing might be a good idea. All the comics in a single download – that would definitely be cool.

    Having finally got it for myself, I second the BitTorrent. And if I haven’t mentioned it before, DMotR is LOL hilarious.

    I have a hunch that it isn’t free hosting…?

    Blame that jerk over at Irregular Webcomic for starts Darths & Droids and linking DMotR…

    Oh, wait, Darths and Droids was ultimately *your* idea, wasn’t it? Nevermind… :-P

    Any chance of getting a zip with the comic archive (picture and your initial “this is the situation” comments up so that we can just get the archive easily?

    defiantly torrent it, it wont use nearly as much bandwidth and I know I would seed it. Any chance of including the footnotes with them?

    Hey Shamus, Google’s serving up naughty ads on your site again.

    No more comics doens’t mean this blog lost interest, so we’ll keep on coming.
