Re. the server question:
I've talked to DreamHost, and they say that they can provide us (once
we have our IRS tax exemption determination letter) with: 500 GB +
2GB/wk disk space and 10 TB + 40GB/wk bandwidth per month total,
spread over essentially as many subdomains of conlang.org (e.g.
conlangernamehere.conlang.org) as we want, free.
On the flip side, I know that DH is heavily oversold, they didn't say
what limits we'd have on CPU or memory usage, and we wouldn't have
root. And we wouldn't be able to host anything that isn't
something.conlang.org (though other domains could point to that).
We haven't made any decisions about this nor looked at enough other
options... but as I said, it's a possibility.
I would like to have us be able to provide (as a membership benefit)
almost-unlimited and permanent webhosting / email with a
email@example.com / yourname.conlang.org account. TBD if we'll be
And TBD, also, if y'all will want it - all we can do is offer.
(informally, but with the LCS hat on)
