    Business-class cable connections can run $200+ a month around here.

    I suppose they're long gone, but a couple of proper servers are still running.

    I'm sure there's a surprising number of servers that are old to drink out there, humming along happily unsupervised.

    When I still had the computer business, I remember getting called into
    a travel agency (new client) who's server was out of disk space. It
    was a novel server.

    It took me and my helper a couple of hours to FIND IT. We had to smash
    a wall out as they had drywalled the server inside an old closet. I
    asked when they renovated? 12 years it ran inside that wall without
    a hickup. We shut it down, cleaned out the fans, added a bigger HDD
    powered it back up (386 DX40) and as far as I know it's still running
    to this day.
