leisureguy and other folks Frequently Ask this Question:
Is there *anyplace* I can see how much space I'm using for my images?
no, and it's hardly such a place might appear on your dashboard any soon.
for one thing, none except site admins knows exact value of <quota_size_limit> -- there're only different inofficial rumors about it in the forum chats or random blogs posts. it might be equal anything: 50MB or 25MB or 1MB.
even the latter smallest value (1MB) gives us a simple idea that total space needed to host all user's images and attachments is about 50TB (50 000 000 MB) of hard disk(s) capacity. but if we multiply that on the rumored 50MB quota the product becomes a fascinating number of 2 500TB!
perhaps, such incredible numbers isn't something that helps to the half a million feel themselves strong too much and that is why there is no "*anyplace* I can see how much space I'm using for my images"?
anyhow, this begin to bother people only *after* they've signed up and made enough posts (i.e when it makes somewhat problematic to tranfer blog somewhere else), and then finaly exceeded their images (only images and what about plain text posts?) quota.
anyway, who cares if some nowdays startups offer 1GB free hosting space for any type of files?
oh, yes any web2.0 bubble can burst suddenly with all your data stored on their hardware. so, what's the deal? -- well, their point is very accurate and simple: life is ephemeral, people want it all (and blog too) now!
