Dear Highlanders,

Up until tonight, I was serving my very small, very rarely visited vtel57.com webpage via Dropbox. However, both Dropbox and Google Drive have both eliminated that feature from their service. So, I'm a domain without a server right now. :(

Here's my question...

Do any of you have server space on your servers to allow me to place a small (6.4 kB) html document along with a very small sized (807.1 kB) background image?

I already have my own domain, so I can forward my domain to your public link for the above document and image. That way, when people click on http://vtel57.com it will link directly to the html and the accompanying background image. I only get about 10 hits a month, so there would be very little bandwidth usage, unless I become famous sometime in the near future.

Well, anyway... let me know. :)

~Eric

Actually, I'll probably just serve the background image on Dropbox. I can just name it background.jpg and link to in in the html document. That way I can change my backgrounds occasionally without having to ask you to let me edit the html file.

I have a VPS running 24/7 if you wish to use my server. I have a 3tb monthly transfer and I am lucky if I use 400gb a month (probably much less).

I couldn't remember if you had a server up or not. YUPPERS! Love to piggy back on your system. Let me modify the html file and serve the background image on Dropbox. Once I do that I'll email you the html file and you can upload it to your server. I'll need the public link to the file once you have it up. With that, I can set my domain forwarding at Hover.com to that link. Then when someone types in or clicks on vtel57.com, it'll go directly to the html on your server. COOL! I'll see if I can do the editing sometime this weekend. It's almost time to go watch Perry Mason tonight. ;)

Thanks, J. :w00t:
