I tried to upload a pdf file that was an example I made on how to solve pdfs, but I received an error that the file was to large at 768KBs. Before wasn't it a few MB?

Yeah, the current setting is 20 kB for many files!?! Other admins: what's a reasonable file size for various different attachments? Also, given those file sizes, is there a convenient way to compute the height and width pixel sizes for the various picture file types?

How much storage is available for storing such things? I we are currently restricted to a few hundreds of MB we may have to be more restrictive than in the old-country.

The hosting package we have claims "unlimited storage" and "unlimited traffic", but I know there are some stipulations in the fine print which I need to read. What do you guys think about uploading larger files, let's say larger than 200-300kb, to 3rd party sites and posting the link here? In the future I am positive we will be upgrading our package to allow more traffic and data for the forum but for now maybe this is a possible solution? If you guys don't like the idea I can increase the upload limit.
