Jeesus H,


Try looking around at other providers.  Hell, I get free service just
for running my mud at my site. You gotta bull shit your provider and tell
them shit like it will attract users etc.... I weaselled 50 megs of space
and my mud runs on a sparc 20 that is only used by the employees and a few
of their friends.

Try other cities, my particuliar provider is in Kansas City. Also, if you
are in school, make friends with grad students, they often have access to
rarely used machines. I ran a mud from a school machine for a few semesters.
(on a nice T-3 I might add...)

If you have a local dialup, I would definetly just start searching other cities.
Also, find providers that are new in business and attack them.. =)
