I have the storage and bandwidth currently, but if it managed to become a problem we'd either experience periods of the game being unavailable at the end of the month(and a downward spiral of everyone getting their fix on the first) or need to collect donations increase bandwidth. I guess we'll cross that bridge when we come to it, though.
One of the nice things about my account is it's a reseller account, so I can actually spin off a completely new account, with up to 20GB storage and 200GB bandwidth. I could probably actually muster maybe 10-15% more before I'd need donations to keep things running, but I'll guarantee the 20/200 up front. The benefit to the reseller thing is that whoever is in charge of the project has full cPanel access, and can in turn create additional e-mail addresses and FTP accounts for other project members, as well as MySQL databases, mailing lists, and subdomains.
One might ask why I'd do this, when I have no other apparent involvement in the project -- well, it's because I'm not particularly adept at much else, and would like to contribute in some way... and this is about the only way I have at my disposal, especially because of how little free time I currently have (at least in usefully contiguous blocks -- I tried running defrag time:
but it didn't work
I also do web design stuffs (including PHP and MySQL/SQLite), so when the time comes for the project to have its own site, I can assist with that; I'll say it right up front though that I don't have enough time to create/manage/maintain the site singlehandedly. Someone else will need to step up to the plate for that.
