tbh, if we're going to spend $99 a month on a box, just get a Viper from
www.rackforce.com - it's the same kit and colo (in Kelowna, BC) that I
recommended from memset.com a while back, it's $99/mth for a Pentium III or
4 (i forget which), a hefty chunk of disk and *unlimited* bandwidth (it's
effectively a throttled 1.5Mbps connection).

*unlimited*.  I'll say that again.  *unlimited*.  No more going over our
allowance if something goes "hiccup".  No more worrying about extra charges.
And it's a regular box.  We just say "Hi, Rackforce, please chuck a basic
install of Debian on this machine please", and sorted.
