Re: Real-world coding examples?

On another point, I'm not really sure what the dell power thingy has to do with it; there are other problems that you get from running from home that you don't generally have to deal with on a vps, or even renting dedicated: Any hardware that crashes is yours to replace. If something blows up in Linode, they replace it and short of a few minutes of downtime, I don't really need to care. If you want to show sites to customers, you don't really want to host from home because of connection issues for one. Second, you will need to use some sort of dns setup, and the idea of DNS is to remain redundant, so you need to set up name servers in two different locations, or at least with two different addresses, if you want to use a domain name. This means that you not only need one static IP (which you have to pay extra for most of the time), but you will need 2, which probably will require you go get a business account, which just makes the whole "host from home for free," point rather pointless. You can use dyndns, but I really don't want to say "hey you customer, come check out your site at mysite.kicks-ass.net or mysite.dyndns.org."

I have a system here I leave running for dev that hosts Linux servers, but I really don't care to go out and get a system just to run windows 2008. seven works good, and there are people to host or just IIS on Seven now that I"m using it for testing.

AS it is, if I wanted to host myself I'd need a better connection, and I'd need a server capable of handling everything that doesn't go down when my ISP decides to play with the internet lines... Also, my windows box moves around. I'm not exactly going to be able to host anything on a box that moves all the time.

For what it's worth, I just did some digging to see what I could come up
with again. I looked first at vps, which run between $40 and $300/m+. It
might be worth noting that I have two linux servers for $20 per, for the
price of one. (the servers are virtual). So I started looking at shared
hosting, and the cheapesst I found was $30. I found a lot cheaper, $5,
$10, $15... But given the grammar issues on the site, it sort of looks
like some high-school student got a crack for server 2008 and is running
something out of his garage; I'd guess by the website he's failing
English, too. I would like to learn ASP.net, if nothing else just for
the experience. Anyone got some open space I could play with? I'd be
willing to pay if it were reasonable. Even better, does anyone happen to
know of any shared hosting solutions that are within a reasonable price?
