    EDIT : and don’t use it for off topic files, even if you add a little lego minifigs in the corner :roll use geocities for that

    You can always host your own movies, or find a free host… if you download apache and install it and all, and get/have a static IP address, you get the amount of space on your harddrive (why not go out and buy a new 20 gig harddrive? thats 20 gig of space on your server!!!), i dunno about bandwidth lol…and…no file limitations or anything!

    but geekshelf had ATLEAST double the amount of files i bet

    but then you have to buy t1 lines to handle all thatconstant upload and download streaming…..
    then the phone/cable company finds out you have a server and they use your pc as a switch for their networks…..
    it also leaves various ports open on your system and ppl like you can find loopholes to get all of my files…
    so maybe that aint so easy huh banjo………

    boy you got alot to learn about the net…
    starting a server or at least a dedicated one anyways……
    takes alot more effort than just
    “PLUG AND PLAY”

    you have to pay extra for more bandwidth and such…….

    it would be cool to have your own server though….
    no prices…..
    you could SELL SPACE FOR ALOT OF MONEY…
    get more servers….
    sell expensive pakages..
    get a massive evil empire started….
    take over microsoft….
    OH WHAT FUN!!!!

    i know exactly what a switch is……
    its used for traffic control and download tracking..
    (kinda)

    nah…..
    i was just being dramatic…..
    but if the phone company finds out you have a server they “request” that you allocate a certain amount of your servers space for additional “HELP” with their network routeing(not that they need any)……..
    be it a small 3 meg allotment to a 1 gb chunk…….
    they will ask….

    the phone company that we used to have in TN found out my dad was running a server and they told him to shut it down or we would lose our service for good…..
    we then promptly said “UP YOURS” in a very polite manner and switched to SWBELL……….
    with which we have stayed ever since……..
    but we stopped the server cause it was alotta money to run at that time and we didna have ALOTTA money to spend on it……..
    —-and thats how i found out that all phone companies are in fact evil—–

    I still think you’re blowing smoke up our shorts. How could a computer on a cable modem, an end node on the cable company’s network, possibly make any contribution to routing? Your cable modem is only connected to one computer, it’s a cul-de-sac off a side street off a thoroughfare off an exit off the information super-highway.

    And how can server space help with network traffic? That’s like saying having a bigger garage will make my car go faster.

    It is true that ISP’s do not like servers being hosted on their networks, which is one of the main reasons all of the cable providers went to DHCP instead of static after the first couple of years. My first cable modem was static, though I never put it to good use.

    Sorry, Proteus, don’t mean to pick on ya.
