    It looks like my cuddles with imgur have come to an end because my galleries are no longer available.
    This is understandable because my map files are getting larger, traffic is probably increasing, and imgur is not making money from me and likely draining resources. I would like to thank imgur for being a free stepping stone. I will support them when I can.

    It is time that I need a more permanent web hosting service and website.
    Ultimately, I'm making a wall poster for the SotA community at A0 size, print quality.
    That means hosting a 20Mb file that hundreds of people may download to send to their local digital print shop.
    I need a host that is simple, basic , stable, accessible world wide and cheap.

    My maps are about giving every "lot" a specific address in the wider world, so as you can be found.
    They are not about giving away any story or song yet to be sung.

    --------------------
    tl;dr
    I need a web host recommendation.

    from the sounds of it, no issues for me to host this for you.

    im on a high level VPS package and may go dedicated server in 2018 or 19. a 20 meg file is nothing.

    I host multiple sites for the sota community, such as:
    http://www.podcasts.thecaverns.net

    thats a more simple one.

    pm me if this sounds like it may work and well discuss further.

    There are some really beautiful additions to your picture gallery on Imgur, @Birko and I'm glad I can still see them.
