	These are just some random thoughts of how you could accomplish your  

	You could look for a system w/ ssh access so that you could obtain a  
shell account through which to build your app.  Another option would  
be to look into VMWare Player for Windows where you could launch a  
prebuilt FreeBSD instance. Additionally you could look into either  
VMWare Workstation or Parallels to create your own virtual server for  
this development work.

	However, I would wonder why you were building an app for FreeBSD but  
not actually already running it?

How do you spell cooperation? Pessimists use
each other, but optimists help each other.
Collaboration feeds your spirit, while
competition only stokes your ego. You'll
find the best way to get along.
