Who really fucking cares anymore? Everyone had cable or DSL now anyway, so I wouldn't waste my money upgrading the server, because it won't make any damn bit of difference to the majority. You should've done it three years ago when it would've matetred.
Legatto, seriously, what the fuck are you talking about?
The only analogy that I can think of to explain "bandwidth for dummies" would be:
There's a 1.5L container of OJ. OJ is newgrounds bandwidth. Vitamins and other nummy shit are NG's content (Flash, Dynamic Php pages etc). All this stuff is delivered in 1 glass of metaphorical OJ. But now you bastards have drank more than half the jug :(, And like OJ, NG's Bandwidth will eventually run out, until someone decides to buy some more.
(There is a monthly supply of bandwidth that gets restored at the beginning of each month, But I dont really know the backbone of NG =p so I can only assume more people are downloading even more flash movies, getting close to maxing out a months supply. Or by "maxing out resources", they mean Swfs are filling servers to full capacity? Or BOTH?! )
It has NOTHING TO DO with the rate you download at (DSL CABLE, T1, T3 etc).
