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.

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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
