Hosting Q&A / What do you think?

This has been bothering me quite a bit.

Right now, I've hit a phase where I think my photography just isn't worth posting anymore, so I've been on a bit of a slump in that department. My current site will still feature those I've made (they're not there right now because I'll be reposting larger versions later on), but I'm still unsure of what to do in the future. I'm not giving up on the site, I'll probably just try doing other things... CGing among others. I've always wanted to improve my drawing...

But anyway, my question.

Due to the lack of attention I've put into my main site, I've decided to create a sub site for the production of a PC Game I'm working on here: . I've read that having two sites on one account is acceptable, and the content is still somewhat related to arts/ development, but I'm still not sure. Do you think it's acceptable? And up to what degree? I mean it'd be great if I could put a download of the game up here (the software I'm using is perfectly legal, btw), but I really wouldn't want to eat up too much bandwith. If it isn't, that's okay. I could always put it up elsewhere...

Thanks in advance for the feedback. :D
Gotta give the guy that made this stuff up points for creativity though. :P

Unicef bombs the Smurfs in fund-raising campaign for ex-child soldiers
By David Rennie in Brussels

The people of Belgium have been left reeling by the first adult-only episode of the Smurfs, in which the blue-skinned cartoon characters' village is annihilated by warplanes.
The short but chilling film is the work of Unicef, the United Nations Children's Fund, and is to be broadcast on national television next week as a campaign advertisement.

The animation was approved by the family of the Smurfs' late creator, "Peyo".
Belgian television viewers were given a preview of the 25-second film earlier this week, when it was shown on the
main evening news. The reactions ranged from approval to shock and, in the case of small children who saw the episode by accident, wailing

Unicef and the family company, IMPS, which controls all rights to the Smurfs, have stipulated that it is not to be broadcast before the 9pm watershed.

The short film pulls no punches. It opens with the Smurfs dancing, hand-in-hand, around a campfire and singing the Smurf song. Bluebirds flutter past and rabbits gambol around their familiar village of mushroom- shaped houses until, without warning, bombs begin to rain from the sky.
Tiny Smurfs scatter and run in vain from the whistling bombs, before being felled by blast waves and fiery explosions. The final scene shows a scorched and tattered Baby Smurf sobbing inconsolably, surrounded by prone Smurfs.

The final frame bears the message: "Don't let war affect the lives of children."
It is intended as the keystone of a fund-raising drive by Unicef's Belgian arm, to raise
