Used to host mine at home on a desktop, but upload speed was very
limited, luckily I work at an ISP.

I'm running a vnc server on it with a lot of terminals open to other
servers and I'm connecting to it from home, kinda like a jump server
(ssh tunnel + vncserver on localhost ftw). Mail, DNS, couple of
websites, torrent tracker, some cacti.

Sidenote: I'm managing 1-2 dedicated servers at rackspace, and I'm
pretty satisfied with them.
