Which free site is better for avatar hosting?

We're hoping some of the long time members of the board could offer some insight. Obviously, we have our avatar up. We're using photobucket's free account which gives you 1500mb of bandwidth a month. We also have set up an Imageshack account which allows 100 mb of transfer per hour for each picture. Our avatar is 100x100 pixels and 10.4kb.

We don't know exactly how BBS hotlinking works as far as what constitutes a hit to our avatar link and how much bandwidth BBS avatars generally use. We're looking for guidance as to which site, photobucket's free account or Imageshack's, is better suited for BBS avatars as far as bandwidth offered and also which site is more reliable.

Thank you!

Warmest Wishes,
