Cyburbia is a friendly big tent, where we share our experiences and thoughts about urban planning practice, the built environment, planning adjacent topics, and anything else that comes to mind. No ads, no spam, and it's free. It's easy to join!
Hopefully, not too long from now. I'm thinking about allowing hotlinking for the first half of the month, and then shutting it off for the rest of the month, at least until I can find a funding source for the site. In the meantime, you can use a kludge; provide an HTTP link using vB tags to the image location, instea...roup ... I may have to do some cyber-begging.
Thanks for the kudos! I'll give a lot of credit to the forum mods, too.
The site was started when I was agrad student at SUNY Buffalo back in 1994. It was hosted on their server up until a few years ago. There were quite a few things that I wanted to do with the site that I couldn't, because of security issues. I also couldn't have cyburbia.org directly hosted there; instead, the address just pointed to UB.
UB offers moral support, and occasionally invites me back to Buffalo speak to the planning grad students. However, they don't fund the site.
What sort of funding? A grant from some organization, or banner ads from an architecture or planning firm or organization. Something that'll pay for bandwidth, maybe enough for a dedicated server (where I won't have to worry about bandwidth), and I can get rid of the animated Amazon ads.
