    is it a popular site?
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    yeah, exceeding the alloted bandwidth just means that too many people are viewing your site, viewing your images or downloading any files that might be there

    yeah, i wouldn't use geocities anyway. The ad's there are too bloody annoying for my tastes.

    'Bandwidth' refers to how much infomation was sent. Say you have a page with an image on it - the page is 5kb, and the image is 30kb. Everytime someone views that page, you use 30+5=35 kb.
    But - if you have 2 pages with that same image on, and both pages are 5kb, you could use anything between 40kb and 70kb. Why? Because some people with have their cache enabled, which means that their browser will see that it already downloaded the image recently, so it won't ask for it a second time. Other people have their cache disabled, which means that the browser asks for the image every time and doesn't bother holding on to it.

    The best advice for keeping bandwidth down is to re-use as much as possible. Having a different title pic on each page may look cool - but is it worth the tradeoff? Similarly, if you can have that menu on the side load just once instead of every time the page loads (frames), it's probably a good idea if its a big menu.

    Edit - just checked the page. You had movie files available on a geocities account? no wonder mate. You won't find a free service that gives you enough bandwidth for that - might be time to fish the wallet outta the toilet, mate.
