I plan to run the new site for about a month to see how it is doing (I have
a 30 days try out period anyhow) and if all goes well, I will give
Cloudflare a try.
Just to let everyone know (it will be announced on the site), I will have a
50 files/day download limit initially to limit the rogue downloads which
have been causing most of the problems. If that turns out to be a problem,
I could have a limit based on file size instead, or a combination of the
two. I would rather not go to a registration process, I want to keep the
site as open and simple as possible.
I have also opened a trial with Linode, on the suggestion of one time-nut
and all the manuals are on that site too. In case MyHosting falls flat, I
should be able to switch rapidly. Linode appears to be a little harder to
setup, maybe due to their use of CentOS 7 versus version 6 for MyHosting.

Anyhow, feel free to let me know how the new site (and the download limit)
affects you via private message. Thanks in advance to all, particularly to
those who already have or have proposed to help financially. There will be
a Donate Paypal button on the new site. Use it often! (As soon as I get
around to it, the donors will have their download limit waived :)

Thanks again,

Didier KO4BB
