    Suggestion: BG Cloud?

    I noticed it seems each user (or it may be a donation only thing) gets 1.5gb of space for the image service.

    I was wondering if there's any possibility of it being developed into a dropbox like service?

    Or would that eventually get the fed's attention

    The idea in my head was that instead of paying for a dedicated cloud or registering somewhere for one, having one that I visit by default at home and at work would be cool.

    Wouldn't that rape BG's bandwidth, the very reason they hold donation drives in the first place?

    Ah I was under assumption because bandwidth is so cheap/irrelevant (I hear it was unlimited?), the thing BG pays for is the prime service/hosting facilities.

    Sono: Not gonna lie but I looked at the image for maybe 30s before figuring out what it meantm haha. The face had me confused until I noticed the topic title that I had made.

    While we're at it, could we get an official bg bandwidth test? It's kind of annoying using random image for that, since the last page is often either cached, or doesn't have much on it, requiring a hard refresh, or in the latter case going back a page and doing the same.

    Also, while i'm posting here anyway, BG's clock is off by 4.5 minutes, any chance of that ever being fixed? It's been driving me crazy for quite some time now.
