Ouch! 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...) -Steve On 1/16/07, Peter Amstutz <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:
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).
