another option is to purchase a cheap VPS somewhere. I spend around
$20/month on a VPS from It gives me full root access,
enough storage and BW for my modest needs, and they seem to have good
support and relibility so far. It is a new monthly expense, but can save you a
lot of hassle from hardware and DSL problems. It is also easy to clone the
VPS and start over if you blow it up!
