Well you could run it on a T1 at home, but that would cost you way too much,
but would be nice :), you could run it on a ISDN line at home, which would cost
you about 300+ for the modem depending on brand, 50+ a month for the phone line
and anywhere between 60-200 dollars a month for the 24 hour ISDN account thru
your ISP.  Or you could just run it on a 28.8 line and be up only when your
online, and be laughed at :).  Just some rough ideas for what your talking
