Money Problem Solved! *sorta*
« on: March 01, 2007, 09:02:21 pm »
Matlu! I totally just thought of something! lol Go buy a server and then charge people for server space..that in itself will pay for the server. And you will have as much server space as you want lol. What ya think? The leading file storage place is down..which was FileLodge. The internet NEEDS another place to store their files. heres a link to the servers. lol

Did I mention I'm a dreamer?

I don't mean to sound pesimistic, but most likely they were closed because it was not profitable...

ok so screw the whole file sharing idea..why not buy a small server and use your own comp as the server. no more monthly payments?

Actually that's exactly what I'm doing. With the difference that the computer is not at my place, but hosted by a special company who takes care of such servers.
