While I've used my webspace for a few hobby projects, and the occasional file hosting, there are several hundred gigabytes just sitting there unused and I find it hard to justify renewing my yearly contract when it comes up again, unless I find a use for it. I'd donate some of it to a mirroring service, but shared-server hosting plans aren't really good for that sort of thing. That said, I'm sure there are lots of useful things that I could use my webspace for, if I had an imagination. Something like a self-hosted Dropbox alternative would be a fantastic use, if it existed. What interesting things do Slashdotters use their personal webspace for? How should any self-respecting geek make use of their webhosting plan and domain name?"
