No, he's talking about self hosting (using one's PC as a web server, which I had mentioned earlier).

This seems to be a general issue on ibiblio right now (other sites also does not work properly there).
Please be patient, we will try to solve this problem.

Comcast and AT&T are two examples of large communications companies in the U.S. They both are cable television and internet service providers to individual homes and to companies. (Usually only one such service provider is available in any particular community.) Internet services provided to companies cost a lot more than Internet services for individuals. Apparently John has had experience with both of them.

Imagine if Viacom was involved instead... this site would be gone.

Noting that the Motherlode (and Celestial Matters) are working again now.
