... you still need to agree to the terms if not already. When the terms are breached again, I will password it. Keep your password while it's up.

Not to be pessimistic or anything, but I don't think many, if few, people even go to your site. Besides, there's nothing there that is really interactive other than a GuestBook, so everything else is a static web page. I don't think a password is necessary imho.

You may be right but this is not always the case that you said. The list below lists the possibilities why I password it


* 4.2 MB hourly bandwidth - If exceeded, site will turn off until next hour.
* Hackers - What if they try to hack a file. With the password, it is harder but not impossible to trigger it, since I provide a demo password.
* What if I need to host files locally at least 2 MB. That bandwidth is a pretty bad limit.

4.2 MB hourly bandwidth

A bot crawling your site will use that much :)

I tried to visit your site but it all seems very confusing. Maybe make a public area and a members only area... :?

Thanks everyone for their patinence, I had a shutdown. Now I have everything under control. Users who have registered before I had a shutdown can use their old password (the pasword in the PM from me) to access the site. New users can pick their own password when registering. Passwords can be changed by sending a new one to me, replacing the old password (passwords longer than 30 characters take longer to process.)
