You know, I used to run my own webserver off of my 800mhz Windows98 laptop,
over dialup? A simple DSL connection would cost maybe 25$ a month, and
leaving your machine on overnight all month; negligible price. The cost of
the server software? Absolutely free. Of course, the domain name costs you,
what, 5$ yearly?

Overall, in my opinion, it would save you over 800$ if you ran your own
server, as compared to what it's costing now. (Interreality isn't on a T-1
line, is it? Because that's about how much a fiber-optic line in your home
would cost...)

Well, to really support VOS development we need to raise thousands of
dollars (since we're talking about me being able to live independently
for at least a year).  Anything less than that won't do more than help
defer the cost of the server that hosts interreality.org (which, if you
are wondering, is on colocation hosting and costs about $100 a month,
currently out of my pocket).
