There was a point just after Moulin Rouge was released, before my webhost company upped my bandwidth and I went and reduced the filesize of thousands of files, when I was paying over $100 a month.

I get upwards of about 100,000 file hits a day (that's not visitors) so I think it sez something that I'm still able to only pay $40 a month for service. But I've just registered a bunch of domains, so that is going to add the yearly expense.

So, it can happen. But I host all my own software. It's different when you're paying a flat fee for hosted software. That's one of the reasons I haven't done chat before. Unless you outsource it's a bugger on that bandwidth.

But I'm looking into hosted chat solutions since some of the refugees got used to it over at louchelounge. will probably have something similar, if not the same software from a different reseller. will try before I buy as it's $75 a year. But I'll need complete user control before I plunk it down.

(My membership has finally been approved. Yippee! I hope I last longer here than at either of my last two homes, The Absinthe Buyer's Guide and the Louch Lounge).

In. Re. Kallisti's observation (one more kick at the rotting carcass):

Yeah, it occurred to me a couple of times during my brief sojourn at the Louche Lounge that sonoman seemed awfully fixated on 'paying the bills.' He was collecting 'sponsors' (proudly displayed at the top of the page), who were presumably giving him something for the advertising space, and kept on selling stuff off, claiming that he needed to raise money to keep the site running. 2 + 2 = ?

And when has operating a website ever cost so much money? Even with chat, you're not looking at enough moeny to bankrupt a person. Unless, of course, you use that website to screw people, who then want to sue you.

Sorry, I need a really embarresed emoticon. I did not mean anything that way but I messed up.



It's not an uncommon mistake, especially on the Internet. There are a lot of folks (usually ones who don't know many gay people) for whom "gay" or "fag" is just a sysnonym for "stupid" or "annoying", with no understanding of how it might be unkind to use it that way. Eminem's famous defense, you may recall, was that he didn't hate gay people, he just used "fag" as a way of insulting straight people. He just doesn't get it.

Like wise, there are a lot of (especially older, southern) white people who were raised to think that "nigger" was just a word for black people, without understanding the subjegation implicit in its use.

It isn't a question of some words being "bad" or "wrong". It's a question of understanding what these words are likely to communicate. If you use "fag" as an insult, you are likely to make people thing that you believe being gay is something bad, whether you intended to or not.

OK, now, group hug!

also, something that might have occured to you all ...

if sonoman was just getting rid of opie's overstock, how come his last list included 5 bottles of LDF la blanche?

either he's selling his freebies (which were probably meant for raffles or personal consumption) or he's still buying stock and using the lounge as platform to keep selling, just not as optimalsmarts who had such a dismal public relationship with both customer's and vendors.

Hosting for IPS boards ran about $10-$15 a month (more for chat I would suppose) ...

just in that first day of listing he sold 8 or 9 bottles which he claimed he made no profit on considering the cost of the board. He'd have to be selling those bottles for pennies to make that true.

and he's had several of these "yard sales", no?

just beating a dead horse, I guess.

I'd rather stub it out in the ashtray... then throw it away like the useless trash it is.

The new, and considerably more boring Lars_Lounge is in full swing. Can I get a *Yawn*?
