	I would have to look into the bandwidth amount on my Internet contract
but I might be able to host such a site via or any

PIII 667Mhz with 256 MB of RAM I could use (plus it hosts mail). 

If we could hammer out some details, guesstimated bandwidth usage and
what type of security concerns to people have.
