Did I not get the memo?  I run a home server just fine on Comcast.  Granted its a private server (there's only like 2 users, I'm one of them), but it handles all of my mail/xmpp/file server needs just fine.  I didn't know there was an era when running an actual public server on a home connection made sense.
