The challenge here comes if everyone wants a high level of reliability.

I don't, I just want a server where I can host a Scheme based website
if I wanted. It doesn't sound like admin'ing it is tough, but I am
lazy, I don't want to be a sysadmin unless I want to do business with
such a site.

"Entry level" servers for a hobby site are so cheap these days: you
can get a dual core PentiumD 3ghz with 3gb of ram and fast disks for
USD600 from Dell!

I guess the real cost is electricity and admin'ing it (assuming you've
got broadband anyway).
