i did some quick "back-of-an-envelope" figuring while riding around on the bus today, and came up with this worst-case scenario (well... BEST-case, really.... he-he..):
assume 44.1kHz/32-bit - that's around 11MB/track/min
assume we want to produce a complete record (~60min) - that's about 2/3 GB per track
assume we're going 24 tracks deep - that's about 16GB
assume we need some headroom (text files, presets, screenshots, whatever) - call it 20GB instead
assume we have 20 users, who ALL upload AND download EVERYTHING twice every week - that's somewhat less than 4TB/mo
and it'll almost certainly end up being a LOT less than that.
works for me.
i can probably set this up within a week or two.
i would host it at whatever-name-we-choose.peterlutek.com
for "whatever-name-we-choose", i was thinking of "laum" (LAU-Music), until i ran into www.inside.net/plugin/laum.htm and laum.univ-lemans.fr
anyone else have any bright ideas for the name?
also, do we in fact have concensus around the idea of using CcHost?
