 My ISP does supply me with a whopping 10MB of "web space" - so much for
 At school I have 40MB, not much that either.

Life isn't easy these days... ;-P

 To get past this, i.e. use your own harddisk and your own server - one has
to have at least a DSL line and a private IP (which isn't possible
currently; i.e. all dynamic).
 Hampering with might help with the need for an IP.

 The price tag isn't nice - almost $40 per month for a 250/64 kbit
down/up-link. (ADSL 2000/400 kbit is $60/month)

In comparision:
ISDN is almost $30/month and 128/128 kbit PLUS a time based charge
(2*$0.02875 per minute daytime, half that in evenings). With this time based
charge you do not run servers 24/7.

v92 modem is also possible, with the same time based charge as above
($0.02875 per minute daytime)
