Funny you should bring that up; I've been running a minecraft server for my
son and his friends (and me, when I can wrest a few hours away to game). It's
just sitting on my workstation and seems to work fine over my cable connection.
I've constrained java to 4G of RAM (-Xmx4096M, -Xms1024M). It seems to work
adequately, except when I am building OE or something. Then the kids start to
squeal about their game getting laggy. :-)
How many people are you expecting to serve at a time? I know my anecdotal
evidence isn't worth the paper it's written on, but I've had a half dozen
people on here at a time without too much trouble.

If you're willing to pay about $150/mo or so you can get a decent colocated
box from iWeb (where I host mixdown.ca). Look for the specials.
