I just got this sent to me:

Dear GeoCities Member:

Congratulations, http://www.geocities.com/chojimoji is
very popular and has been receiving a large amount of traffic. Your
site has become so popular, in fact, that our records indicate that
you're using more than the allotted amount of data transfer we provide
for a free web site, which is 3GB/month (measured on an hourly basis).

In the past we have not enforced that limit, so your site has been
uneffected thus far. However, shortly, all free member sites
transferring more than the allowable data limit will be disabled
for portions of the day until usage falls to within the prescribed

If you'd like to prevent this from happening to your site, you
may join one of our new premium services, GeoCities Pro or GeoCities
Webmaster. These packages allow for 10 GB and 20 GB of data transfer
respectively, and also give you the option of purchasing unlimited
data transfer so your site will never be disabled. These packages also
enable you to run an ad-free site at your own domain name (for example,
www.your-dot-com.com) AND get matching email accounts at
that domain (like you@your-dot-com.com).

For more information about our new packages, please visit
http://geocities.yahoo.com/ps/info?.refer=bwe. Upgrading your current
GeoCities site to one of our new premium packages is easy - just a few
clicks away - and you don't have to move any of your files.

If you'd prefer not to receive notification when your site is shut
down for going over the transfer limit, you may visit
http://geocities.yahoo.com/opt/bwemail?.refer=bwe to take your name
off of our list. Of course, we will continue to monitor your site's
data usage and turn it off if it exceeds the limits.

Thank you,

Yahoo! GeoCities

just create a mirror site with angelfire, when you have your geocities page open up have the user select a mirror for it. this should theoretically cut usage down by half.
