With a small local PC you should try to offer something to people which is specific to your location. Some things which come up:
- A website based weather station with the local weather situation
- A high precision NTP time server which uses a GPS antenna to obtain precise timing (requires Linux or FreeBSD running on your computer)
- A webcam (although 80 kbs may be a little bit slow to serve many people)
Pocket money could be generated with a contextual advertising service like AdSense.
