Just the ASCii text, or the PowerTabs and Guitar Pro tabs too?

Just ask an admin how big UG's servers are.

Quite a lot, considering you'll have to save about 500 high res photographs of me along with it.

for jus guitar pro, it's not that much space. I have almsot every guitar pro tab. Like, I don't have many newer than a few months, but I got a CD with everything up until like may 08, and it easily fits on my hard drive.

o.k if a tab with just text is on average 3 pages...i looked at 10 and the average was 3...

then a guestimation would leave me to believe that that the tabs take up 5380500000 bytes of info...i can't be bothered to shorten it.

over 300 000

I've seen a torrent with like 30k guitar pro tabs and its only a couple of gigabytes
#13
Few gigabytes, 20-50 maybe?

Dude, you just made the most intelligent post in this entire thread. Congrats.

One tab is roughly 5kb

UG says they have over 300,000

So that's... 1.5gb? That sounds wrong.

^ Just a sidenote here, but I can't help thinking that you should change that to "Bands to see before they die", which is probably more likely.

Anyway, just PM zappp and ask how much space it takes up.

Especially Rush. Have you seen Geddy lately?
