A public server needs a trivial CPU.

It needs enough bandwidth to handle 4 TCP "floods" from peers and 10
or 15 million UDP requests from anonymous clients per day.  The floods
total perhaps 1 GByte/day.  Each request is about 120 bytes.  That is
a total of a few GByte/day or a few 10 Kbit/sec.

When you are ready, contact me privately.
