comment Server Hosting from your House - $200 to $300 per month range
I second this motion. EC2 (or another cloud service) offers nearly unlimited expansion as your needs grow, and relieves you from the obligation of providing the infrastructure overhead that you NEED if you intend to make your living from the services which these servers would offer. Cloud computing is genrally easy to use, and cheap to start up.

comment Is it possible to detach a process from its terminal? (Or, “I should have used screen!”)
On my version of bash [3.2.25(1)-release (i686-redhat-linux-gnu)], I tested the process, and didn't have to disown the job before disconnecting. The child PID disconnected from the parent PID, and kept running as my username without interruption. YMMV, I suppose.

No. Well, at least not if you're running bash. The job will detach from your ssh session's PPID, and still be running on the server as your username.
