If you are a hardware or software person its great to play around with some of the various single board computers there are. In particular the Raspberry PI has a low price point which makes it perfect for little side projects or even bigger projects where for instance you want to test some distributed computing ideas. In any regards I found this group that are offering to host your Raspberry PI for free in their data center. I have no idea about how good they are but for free I thought it was pretty cool. It might be nice to a small personal website such as my own which doesn’t require much processing power. Check them out.
