FWIW, you may notice my journal’s images are currently unavailable. With all due thanks to timberwoof for the hosting he was able to offer over the years, in turn thanks to one of the folks from our mutual engagement (so to speak =:), that’s now come to an end. I’ll likely wind up hosting the site myself hereon, though I may go for some low-end commercial option - I’d need no processing capacity, after all, though I’d want to be careful about low traffic capacities. (If I wanted to share a 200MB video clip, that could add up fairly quickly against the tiny allowances I recall seeing on some offerings!)

On that note, might anyone have any recommendations, if I do go with an external offering? Low cost would be very good, but they must be a good bunch - Godaddy, f’rex, isn’t an option. =:D

+1 for NearlyFreeSpeech. I have an account there, although I can't recall the last time I've used them. I don't think I've added money in ages, although that's probably because I don't get any traffic there, since I don't think anything points there anymore.

Otherwise, Amazon S3 might be nice and cheap. AWS services include a free tier for the first year of usage (or if you've signed up in the past and didn't use it at all, send them an email - I was able to get my free year reset after I found out I had signed up and never did anything with it.)

Would hosting something at home be an option? Open up port 80, point it to a small desktop machine / small old laptop / jailbroken iPhone or iPad with apache installed / Raspberry Pi / etc?

(Most of my hosting these days is on a Linode box, although that's probably overkill for the amount of usage I actually require.)

Ah-HAH! That's it! I was trying to find what account I'd set up, and wasn't finding it all that readily, but realised I'd done something about it around this time (ie then =:), and NFS rang the bell. I'm now logged in. ^_^

Now to see if I can finally get set up. ^_^

(I've vaguely wanted to get an independent site up for all this time, but imgur's recently been sending signals that they're wanting to implode, so it seems like a good time to finally get things in order)
