Freesound needs your help

Freesound, the big samples database, has grown in size and popularity dramatically – and they require your help for keeping it up. So they are basically looking for mirrors. From their webpage:

The Music Technology Group of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona is seeking mirrors for the Freesound project. The Freesound project’s user base has grown to nearly a half million users, and the bandwidth requirements of the site have exceeded the capacity of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Therefore, we are seeking help from other public institutions or private enterprises who have available server space and excess bandwidth.

Although (unfortunately) I’m just an occasional user of Freesound I really think it’s a great project, and deserves to be supported. They just need a minimum of 50GB disk space, which for nowadays standards is quite cheap, plus some excess bandwidth. I would gladly lend them some space if I had a dedicated server, but since that’s not the case, this the best I can do.
