Growing signs that podcasting, and podcasts themselves, are becoming increasingly more popular. Hosting sites, such as PureCast Media, are being shut down becauase of the growing cost of file distribution. The worst part is, Im not sure if any of their clients saw this one coming. Here it is, straight from the horses mouth.
"Our Apologies... PureCastMedia.com has been shut down due to incredible bandwidth overages that skyrocketed into thousands of dollars. All subscriptions have been cancelled and will not again re-occur. All of our business databases and email contact capabilities were also disconnected from us (because it was all on that server) when this happened, so we have no way of telling anyone about this except with this page. Again, our apologies... we never intended this to happen. "
