The 4400 and webpage issues..  
Oh, wow. I loved the season finale of The 4400!!!

So many things were started because of this episode.. The last minute or two, when they showed the montage of after-effects... wow!! It was so surreal, and I REALLY am interested in what happens from now on!! *jumps around* I wonder when the next season will start.... OMG I want some of that serum too! No fair-- share onegaishimaaasu!!

On that note, I wonder when the new seasons of The Simple Life, The Amazing Race, and Survivor will start. I can't remember if there were any more that I used to watch. Mmm... Does anyone want to recommend anything good to me that's starting up this fall? (and their homepage) I used to watch Joan of Arcadia, but stopped being able to dl it, and I don't know where I left off anymore.... Oh, and of course I have to watch The Simpsons and South Park and the best of the best, The O.C. (OMG IT STARTS NEXT WEEK!!!!!! WAI!!!!!!!)!

The Reunion looks like it might be a good show. I hope I can get this one..

And oh man, Densha Otoko!! I LOVED episode 8!! OMG HOW CUTE!! XDXD

Mmm.. I want to start up my own webpage for my art, and about Tenimyu and stuff. I already have picked the domain name (not tenimyu related), but can anyone recommend a good hosting service? I need unlimited space and either really high or unlimited bandwith? I have an idea of one host already (same as Athy's), but they had issues with me being out of the country. -_-;; And I still don't know how I'm going to pay for it.. but one step at a time. *is broke*

I drew for Anizona... LOL but my idea was retarded.. but I'm going to work with it and see if I can salvage it before sending it to Athy. XD;;; *dies of retardedness* I also want to draw other things. I REALLY need to work on that! *needs to do job-related things too but keeps putting them off*
Current Mood: busy

I wonder about that though... I've hosted videos, mp3s, pictures, and stuff on them... and never had a problem at all.. and that's in addition to the actual site that my friends run. 50gb isn't enough, you don't think?

Well, I'm used to seeing plans that have at least 100GB of bandwidth.
I think the fact that they give you only 50GB of bw is the reason why they offer unlimited webspace. I mean, even if you have all this stuff uploaded, if your site gets tons of hits, the bandwidth wouldn't hold out. You know what I mean?

My CWY site is hosted on my friend's DreamHost account. She's got like 364GB of bandwidth. (DH ups your bandwidth every week, which is real cool.) Depending on what content we put up, we can use over 150GB when we've only got a little over 7GB of webspace. Hopefully that gives you a good idea. .^^

Hmmm... All of the places that I'm looking at charge setup fees unless I pay a year or more in advance. I don't have the money in my us account to do it right now. Have you heard of any places that are have specials or anythign with no setup fees?

Yeah, I'm looking at other places with better bandwith now. X_x Dude I just hate the thought of limiting what I put up... I'm paying for it after all.
Mewgokumew2 on August 31st, 2005 04:32 pm (UTC)
They usually only waive setup fees and stuff if you pay fully in advance. =.\

Well, you only pay so much.
The more you pay, the more you get. Unfortunately that's how it goes.

That Gold Plan of IX WebHosting does look really good though. 500GB should be enough for you. (That's quite a lot, actually. .^^;) I think I might show this site to my friend. We've been looking for a new hosting service to replace Host Excellence, and this place gives you more for $5 less.

You say you only have $40 in your PayPal account. Maybe you can hold off on getting hosting until you have enough to pay for a year? Then you won't have to worry about paying for your site every month and during that time, you can work and save for next year's payment or something.

Mmm... the problem is that it's so expensive to transfer money to America.. -_- And I'm impatient. (mostly that I'm impatient..)

Either way I'll have to hold off until I get the money. And unfortunately they require 2 years in advance. Gah.... oi oi.
Mewgokumew2 on August 31st, 2005 04:48 pm (UTC)
Eh? No, only one year. If you pay for two years, you get free setup plus 10% off.

As for MP3s, I read their TOS and I didn't see anything that had content restrictions, except adult material. It said that you can have up as many files (they didn't specify) as you want as long as they're all linked in an HTML file. They just don't want people using the servers as a file dump. The content needs to be available publicly. Yar. So I guess they're okay with MP3s and perhaps copyrighted material?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on August 31st, 2005 04:56 pm (UTC)
Eh? http://www.ixwebhosting.com/index.php/home.dspPage/page/info.dspProductSaversPlan

But there it says that 2 years is free setup. It doesn't even list one year as an option. Am I missing something?

Mmmm... I will definitely have adult material, though not in the way that they're probably thinking.. so it should be okay. And hopefully they'd overlook that a large majority of the files that are on my site will be linked in my lj or just given to friends. A lot won't be available publicly. ^^;; *goes to look over tos* I don't know what hosts are like with this kind of thing, if they just don't bother to check or anything... since I've never had a host of my own before.
Mewgokumew2 on August 31st, 2005 05:02 pm (UTC)
Oh, you were looking at the Savers Plan? That only comes with 5GB. The unlimited webspace plan is the Gold Plan, $19.99/mo. That one has free setup for annual payment.

Yeah, fine arts and things like that aren't considered adult material.
And umm... What you described, linking from your LJ, I'm guessing would go against their TOS. I think you need the files actually linked on the website itself. You can go ask them about that to make sure though.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on August 31st, 2005 05:07 pm (UTC)
OMG I could NEVER pay $20 a month for web hosting. I'm too cheap. ^^;

Yeah, I'm afraid of asking them, you know? ^^;; I was hoping that I could just get away without them noticing, you know? ^^;; Ehhh... man, they're so strict, they shouldn't care what happens to it if I'm paying for the hosting.. you know? *grumbles*
Mewgokumew2 on August 31st, 2005 05:11 pm (UTC)
Well you were saying you wanted unlimited webspace so I thought you were going for that. .^^;

When I want to ask questions like this, I usually use a different email addy than I would register with.

Actually, this is one of the most loose TOSes I've ever seen. They don't specify specifically what files they do and don't allow. They just say no adult material.

I guess they would care because if they knowingly let people host copyrighted files on their servers, they could be held responsible if any law suit came up as well.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on August 31st, 2005 05:15 pm (UTC)
Mmmmm... guess I'll just have to chalk it up and email them after all, ne? ^^;; *is so lazy*

Thanks for helping me out with this!! ^^ It might be a while before I can afford it though.

Yeah, I would like the large plans.... but I can't afford it, really. ^^;
Mewgokumew2 on August 31st, 2005 05:18 pm (UTC)
*nodnod* .^^ Tell me what they say too cuz I'm kinda curious myself. I really do think I can recommend this web host to my friend. They're cheaper than what he's paying now so ya.

No problem. =.3 And thanks for showing me this site!
