Forums are ever growing and ever needing more storage.... Eventually they have to be hosted with plenty of space.
I'd hope the admin has this piped through a static DSL/cable/fiber on a home computer. LOL, I use to have a forum on a dialup modem. 28.8
Of course all that accessed it was dialup and it wasn't pretty like this one. Had a static through my isp, full web server, DNS server, and forum all on 28.8
Those were the days....
Actually, the real days were Ansi/text graphics on 300 baud.
