    I looked long and hard at cable... it's so cheap and the bandwidth 
is hard to beat - even at 512.  The only problem as mentioned is the 
static IP thing.  If you're hosting a low volume family site, then the 
near staic IP is fine - who really cares if the photos are unavailalble 
for half a day - It usually takes me at least that long to notice if 
there's a problem.  On the other hand, if it's mission critical - what 
the heck are you doing running it at home? :)  I use DSL since I didn't 
want to have to change the DNS, but over the last three years, my ISP 
has renumbered twice, so I've had to do it anyway.  I do get 1.5 up and 
down though, so I can't complain.
