Upcoming TORCS Review and Google Pages Bandwidth Limit

Today, I’m supposed to write a review of an open-source game called TORCS. However, something came up that took away most of my time.

Earlier, I also experienced a little problem with my background images and JavaScripts on this blog. The cause was my other site eating too much bandwidth due to very high traffic. You see, I hosted or uploaded all of my image files and scripts for the two sites in one Google Page Creator account. I didn’t know or haven’t heard that there was such a bandwidth limit on sites hosted by Google.

When I tried to access my uploaded files, I received this sad message:

The bandwidth or page view limit for this site has been exceeded and the page cannot be viewed at this time. Once the site is below the limit, it will once again begin serving as normal.

A quick advice for those who are using Google Pages to host files for their websites or blogs: Make a separate Google Page Creator account for separate websites to avoid bandwidth issues. I already did, although a little bit late.

I guess that’s about it for now. Chow!

    yes, google page creators bandwidth is limited, as seen on google help centre:

    however it says that they cant disclose what the limits are!

    some people also believe that google are limiting IP adresses on how much they download and how many times they look at certain pages!!!
