Well, I have always had NAT in my house since the days
back in 1995 when I first set up TIS firewalls tookit
on a FreeBSD machine connected via an always-on v.32bis
modem link.

I know exactly what the benefits and downsides of NAT are.
But it runs all the things that I want to run at home
just fine. For anything else, I have a colocated server
elsewhere in a nice data centre.

I think this is also the pattern followed by Joe User
although his "server" is likely to be a shared server
running a blog or a wiki, than my *nix box.
