    Running and maintaining this web site.

    Hi Gibgib,

    I'm wondering what it takes to run a site like this? How much does it cost and do you run it off your own server or is it hosted by someone else? Just curious.

    Thanks.
    You're not paranoid if everyone hates you.

    It used to cost me US$38.85 per quarter for hosting with <a href="http://www.westhost.com" target="_blank">www.westhost.com</a> before DCSI Internet <a href="http://www.dcsi.net.au" target="_blank">www.dcsi.net.au</a> offered to host for no cost!
    Only other ongoing expense is domain name registration. This was AUD$120 per year last year with Melbourne IT, this year thanks to de-regulation it was only AUD$69 for 2 years! Negligable!
    Last week I spent about 6 hours updating the whole site & stuff (logo changes, dead links, new forums etc), but usually only 3-4 hours a week.
    Must spend anywhere from 4-6 hours p/w reading post but cheers!
