I have several Linode hosts around the US but they don't have nearly
the storage nor bandwidth to host this data...
I recently spoke with Hurricane Electric and they have a pretty good
deal on a dedicated host with a 100Mb/s pipe, unlimited transfer and
enough storage (500GB) to host the tables plus the 60Gigs of tables I
already have, ~$70 month. If enough people were interested in donating
a small amount to the cost then we could put in on a dedicated box.
Any other ideas?
