Balloon Chit Chat / Re: Bandwidth exceeded

The site was down tonight for a while as we out grew our hosting server and the site had to be moved over to a new larger server.
I've updated the site to 8 GB Storage, 40 GB Bandwidth whatever that means.

Yeah saw that last night.

Bandwidth is how much data/files is accessed by visitors to the site. Every time someone loads a page it transfers data from the server to the users PC. The more visitors and the more they browse, the quicker the allowance gets eaten up. A good way for forums is to get people to upload photos to some other file sharing site and then just link them in a post, this way it doesn't eat into your storage or bandwidth allowance.

Kevin posted his menu a while back if you try the search button.

Thanks, I'll have a look.

I've just been bitten by the balloon twisting bug and I'm learning the ropes as quick as I can, but my other half has lined me up with a public event where she will be face painting and I will do balloons.

I just wanted to ask on how others felt at their first public line work event? How many designs should I have on my 'menu'?

Thanks Sonia, and yeah I think I have, lol.  I gave it a go after watching a few youtube videos and was quite surprised how straight forward it was to make something out of one balloon that looked really effective. I think it will be a challenge to learn and remember designs but I'm going to give it a good go.

Oh, please ignore some of the strange colour choices, I've been using a big multi-bag so have to compromise on choices (like yellow eyes). I have some more on order now though!

Here is a sample of the things I've made currently, please feel free to comment on anything good or bad.

Hi all, another newbie here.

I'm Lee and am based in Lancashire, just north of Manchester. My better half is a professional face painter and I've been looking at ways we can add to her business. I gave twisting a try and I seem to have a hidden talent I never knew I had, lol.

I've been watching a lot of YouTube videos and seem to have the basics mastered with things like swords, flowers, bears, guns, tigers. I'm going to concentrate on the 'simple' designs for now, stuff for line work, and then hopefully to bigger and better things.

Looking forward to learning a lot and hopefully contribute where I can
