    hey.. i know a lotof this sort of thing used to be around, but now its a real rarity..

    basically i want to run a small forum site for about 20 ppl using XMB.

    me and my friends dont really wanna spend the money, we may not even use the forum thing after a few months.. we wanna try it out..

    so if anyone had like 20 megs to spare on their server, or knew of one.....

    btw: we wouldnt be posting images or anything, just strictly text and stufferz.. so size shouldnt be a worry..

    thanks..

    Why not one of your own machines with a fast connection?

    tehehe.. yeah.. i have a pc i could use to host it -- but it gets used a lot.. and i would wanna run unix on it.. cause im totally clueless as to set up php and mysql using windows..

    plus my connection gets (strangely) capped whenever i upload for more than 5 seconds -- and i share my connection..

    also, i only have cable..

    maybe i can get a hold of a cheap computer i could run unix on.. but i dunno..

    do any of you guys know how to run php and mysql on a mac..? that could be a possibility..
