600+ Visitors on first day, Sponsor for webspace and Germany will be up soon

Hello everyone, what a day! I did not even get to mountainbike today. Been occupied with this site and automating the map generation (plus some improvements) the whole day.

I did expect maybe 100 visits today, but not 600+ (mainly during the last 12 hours). I don’t think many other websites put up privately get that many people on the first day….. Had I known this I would have improved the page design a bit more before posting on forums (mtb-news.de, naviboard.de, naviuser.at) about this site. I feel quite ashamed about the mess the site is in…

Without help by mtb-news.de for hosting the files and the offer by DomainBox.de to give me free webspace for uploading the mapsets for you I bet this site would have been taken down already by my filehoster. (I decided for a €3.33 offer with 1GB, unlimited traffic – were you can be more or less sure that they either block your sites until next month or get rid of you according to what I read in forums about them once you get to around 25-30gig traffic per month).

Right now my CPU is running hot compiling Germany. I think it will be uploaded […]

Done for Today

O.k. the main part of the work is done. I think this blog is usable now. I still have to get started on adding a nicer design to this page.

Austria, Switzerland and Bavaria are up and ready to be installed.

I will render a Germany Mapset overnight and have a look for a filehoster. Expect to get it earliest by tomorrow evening. Anyone got a tip which filehoster I should use? I’m tending for Mediafire because AFAIK files uploaded by non premium members to rapidshare are deleted after a certain number of downloads. Please help me out here. I expect the download to be around 400MB in size.

Update: Domainbox.de stellt mir Webspace zur Verfuegung, ihr braucht euch also nicht mit Filehostern herumquaelen. – Domainbox provided me with webspace for the maps, better for you and easier for me….
