      Does anyone have a business subscriber Internet connection? Is it worth it?

      I just spoke with my ISP, and for an extra $40/mo I can get a static IP address with 100mbps that I can host my own website on. I have a virtualization server, and I've been thinking about hosting my own hobby-scale website for a while. I haven't had any luck finding rack hosting space that I'd feel comfortable using so I'm thinking about just going rogue, and operating solo. If I had a static IP address with a pipe that would allow me to host then all I'd need to do is stand up a server, register a domain, and point it at my IP address.

      Other than the typical security risks, what do I need to worry about? Would the experience be worth it?

      For the past year I've found I've been spending more and more time browsing the internet (mostly Youtube and Reddit). Most days when I don't have anything to do, and even days when I do, I just spend browsing, following various rabbit-holes, watching videos, etc, and I am almost certain that my mental and physical health have declined significantly as a result. Even now as I am typing this i am supposed to be writing an essay. Has anyone else been through this? Does anyone have any tips for managing it?
