I'm just looking at the feasability of using a PC to serve Calmira.  I just
spent $3 and bought Windows NT 3.51 Server and IIS 3.51.  I'm on a
1.5Mbit/512Kbit ADSL connection with 5GB/1GB  transfer.  I just dove into the 
Archives
when Robin (then Brian) posted the bandwidth used by the site for March,
2002.  If the screenshots and downloads are stored on dedicated servers, it 
would
be feasable for me to serve, or at least mirror the main site.  It shows
that the downloads and screenshots accounted for 94.374% of the site's 2.68GB
bandwidth.  This means that everything except for the screenshots used
approximately 154.42MB of bandwidth.  I might just have to soup up my IBM 
Valuepoint
425SX/D.  I can probably get my hands on another AMD 5x86 133MHz based
upgrade CPU and I'll put 64MB ram in it.

Here's an excerpt from that message.


"Total Bytes Served             2,878,039,102
Total Page Requests             35316
(of which 10,832 were the front page)
Directory                       hits    (% of bytes served)
-----------------------------------------------------------
/downloads/                     13,406  (70.060%)
/screenshots/                   20745   (24.314%)

So in March, calmira.org served roughly 2.9 GIGAbytes of data, and the 
two big pages were (to no real surprise :-P ) downloads and screenshots."
