If it's just size, perhaps we can organize a little fundraising to improve your storage situation. I know I would be willing to contribute to that. I guess what I'm saying is, Don't be afraid to ask for some. help :-)

You guys are awesome! Big Grin And I'm sure there are a number of people out there thinking the same thing. I appreciate the support as I work through this update!

It's less about initial funds and more about sustainability. I want the community to be sustainable in the long haul.

I don't have a problem with fundraising but not something I would want to do often. I'd like to have the site pay for itself and these large map renders would fill up hard drives faster than I could buy them.

I'm actually contemplating throwing some money at Tectonicus' charity page so he'll release the source code as open source. This may be the fastest way to 1.2 support over here.

Overviewer is open source already and I'm dipping into the source code today to see if I can make it work the way I need it to before going the above route.
