I remember I talked to Steve years ago about his hosting costs, and they were extortionate. That was when he was running the shop as well. I don't know if he ever changed provider. I expect the forum was the majority of his running costs, due to traffic, although the shop would have been serving high quality images. Even with the extra traffic over this site it really shouldn't be unmanageable unless he's letting users host video and large images on his site. I'd have thought he could keep it going comfortably with crowd-funding via his paypal tipjar. You guys are generous and we have a fraction of the GWTW user base.
