these are no small points...

if beo got moved elsewhere, that would free up monies we'd collect
from donations for a lot of other things...

beo sits in something of a vacuum anyway, right?  it's not connected
to the other sites in any way, and it doesn't currently rely on
membership info...

since i brought that behemoth to evolt.org, i do feel somewhat
responsible for its bandwidth use...

so how about i research moving it?

we've already said it doesn't hurt to research anything and then come
back here with suggestions... i know the traffic it eats per month...
 and it'll put me closer to the box so 520MB uploads don't require me
babysitting an FTP client on a friday night...

obviously it would still be part of the evolt.org collection of
sites, bowing to the whim of the group...
