Maximum reasonable size for pictures?


My web cam made pictures that used just a few kbytes. Now I bought a camera that can make pictures that use up to the Mbyte area. Moma told me not to use other people’s disk space without saying “may I please?”.

Mr. Administrators, could you please establish some rules about the size of pictures that can be attached or uploaded to /scipics? I don’t want to have pictures deleted because they occupy too much space, but I don’t want to waste the opportunity of showing details either.

I believe I set the limit at 100 KB.

I can't seem to upload anymore pictures. I tried uploading a 14 KB jpg file and it gave me an error message.

Blame Bravidio.


I certainly do. This account came with 500 MB of disk storage. According to my account stats, more than 200 MB should still be available. But I can't actually add more content because the hard drive that the files sit on is full (well, almost completely full, but ordinary users cannot use any more space (has to do with linux's handling of almost-full disks)).

On the bright side (ha ha?), I expected to have to pay for hosting renewal months ago, and even explicitly requested the ability to do so, but never received a response or a bill. I know I said last year that I wanted to find a new host, but maybe this time it will be forced. The sticking point for me is control of the domain name, which has always been handled by Bravidio even though it ostensibly belongs to me. It's hard to get the domain name transferred (or anything else done) when e-mail to support is silently ignored.

I have to remember to make more frequent database backups for the eventuality that our host fails altogether.

EDIT: I switched the scipics directory so it's a symlink to an emptier partition. Try uploading again.

This forum is great, if you have a picture you can just attach it:

No more geoshitties :D

No more broken links :mad:

You can watch them even if your new to the forum (Pisses me off @ E&W, you cant watch attached pics because you dont have the right privilliges *aaaaaarrrrgggghhhhhh*

In short, this forum rocks ;)




Dutch pride world wide :P ;)
