Yes, really. :) Besides, it's not just images, also all kinds of data
files, like .swf and such: 500KB is just ridiculously small. I have a
client here with an elegant photo gallery, and a quick 'find' shows that
13% of all its files are > 500KB.
Fortunately, it seems that absurd limit just exists for the free hosting.
So, I may consider them after all, as there's no such thing as a free
lunch, and their paid plans seem very reasonable.
And, indeed, looks like their MySQL databases were never included in
said limit to begin with.
