Problem's with the Site...

Ok, ok, I know what your saying to yourself right now, "Where has the Joe Madureira! fansite gone?" The thing is, my host is going to get rid of his server... so the Joe Madureira site doesn't have a home. I had to make this page on a Blogger account to tell you guys what's going on. Again, your probably saying, "Well just get a new host and everything will be dandy." The problem is, my last host was 100% free, and right now I don't have enough money to actually pay for hosting since I'm a University Student who has lots of stuff to pay for. Right now my friend and I are looking around and asking around for anyone that can help us out with hosting... it's probably going to be impossible to find anyone generous enough like my last host to give me the space and bandwidth.

Pretty bad news eh ? Sort of dissapointing how this happens when Joe is doing all the new things like Darkstalkers, a new NCsoft project, a 2nd Street Fighter Back up, and possibly continuing Battle Chasers someday. Hopefully the site will be back sooner than later...here's hoping!

Finally, I'd like to thank all the people that visited my site. It's been a good year (well almost a year, the site opened Sept. 7th, 2003) and the community was just starting to buzz. I got a bunch of contributions from fans in the form of art, checklist additions, and even issue pictures for the gallery. Again I'd like to thank all those people and hopefully the site will come back someday soon!

So how much web space do you need??? I think I can find you some hosting... I don't promising anything, but I will talk with the right people. So just tell how much space do you need... 100mb, 200mb???

Hey Valen, thanks for the support. I think it takes around 150 to 200 MB to host all the artwork. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Thanks Valen. Hmm even if you can find a 100 MB one it should be ok.
