Re: This Forum Is A Living Breathing Growing Life Forum
It's a bit hard to answer precisely, because of the way the costs are incurred -- sort of like estimating the costs of using an otherwise empty room in your house.
But the realistic costs are probably in the ballpark of $100/month.
The getting started costs are a lot lower than that, as someone can start a new forum without anywhere near the need for disk space and bandwidth that we use, and could opt not to do on- and off-site backups nightly.
Often uninformed, seldom undecided.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain
