The following isn't any form of criticism, nor suggestion -- but just to
point out the option:
A large number of companies offer either hosting or virtual hosting,
which you could take advantage of in addition to whichever low-bandwidth
demand-usage solution best suits your boat. Some virt-hosting companies
are now using Xen, UML, or QEMU frameworks, and it cane be awfully
difficult to distinguish from having an entire physical machine.
You can also own your own domain, and virthost just the mail for it
somewhere, if nothing else:
[rick at linuxmafia]
~ $ whois Okopnik.com
No match for "OKOPNIK.COM".
Short of that, you can at least have shell on a friend's Linux host.
If memory serves, you actually already do. ;->
One or two other of my users are already granted the right to install
new Debian packages via lines in /etc/sudoers, because I trust them not
to do anything too crazy. I wouldn't mind doing that for you, too.
