    edit:in the current issue wsa a page that went on about CameraArts becoming an online publication run by VC. May have something to do with that.

    Site seems fine now. Just a glitch I suppose. Maybe they made a typo when filling out the check to pay GoDaddy! Ha! (Sorry Steve, just couldn't resist after finding Chris Rock's picture captioned as Kid Rock).

    the site was moved to a new hosting company, which confirms my suspicion that it was not godaddy, but probably a dispute between VC and the hosting company.

    Knot to knit pick, but Eric indicates it was harddrive space not bandwidth (how many people hit the site) that was exceeded. Someone at VC must have really been a jerk to the hosting company or their hosting company were none to professional. If VC had any kind of relationship with the hosting company they would have warned VC many times and given them a chance to update their package or reduce their disk usage. The only times I've seen this kind of behaviour from a hosting company is when the client stopped paying, refused to play by the rules or were the target of a denial of service or similar attack.
