I tend to agree with you here, on pretty much all accounts.  As for
having an 'inside' contact- I'm the admin for a friend who runs a local
ISP that does hosting.  I'm not sure if he'd be interested, and there's
not all *that* much bandwidth available at the moment, so I'm not sure
it'd work there.  My guess is that he'd want it on a seperate server
anyway, so it'd have to justify that cost, esp. if the server is only
going to be used for one person.

Does anyone else have interest in this type of hosting arrangement?
What would people think of having 'common' datasets loaded in a public
area (such as the TIGER dataset)?
