    there has got to be something I can do with my 10mb line that just sits while i'm at work 40 hours a week.

    is there any way to host a videogame server or some sort of ad supported something or other...

    any ideas?



    edit: ugh, i hate changing my mind on a title and then it ends up in such a poor gramatical state.

    doesn't utilize a 10mb line, either.

    I wonder if there are any contract stipulations that prevent a home-user from commercially utilizing the line? Or is that legal?

    :eek:

    I am curious to find out :D

    You can offer off-site backups to businesses for a fee. Let's just say I know someone who does it and it works well ;)

    Most contracts that you have with ISP's, especially if they are not a business customer make it against the AUP to host any servers or services. For example, with Cox, I am technically not allowed to host an SSH server or VPN server on my gateway machine. They could technically cut us off, or at least send us a threatening letter about it.
