Connecting 16F877 on internet by PSTN

Funny thing, nobody suggested absolutely obvious variant:
PIC + cheapest computer based on micro-ATX motherboard, I810 for example, connected via WinModem to WebServer.
Eron did not say any word about case dimensions, power consumption. By the way, micro-ATX case is relatively smal. Power management is rather advanced under M$ software.
Wake-up by PIC may be implemented.
The cost will be aprox:
Motherboard $40 (Intel810)
CPU $30 (VIA CoolRunner)
RAM 128M $25
HDD-20HB $65 Win95 $??
Going this way you are destined to fulfill your task.
A lot of guys on the list once in a while are get connected to WebServers over PSTN. Nothing too complex.
Going in other directions you may remain playing with TCP-IP for a long time, instead of developing
an application. (Look at threads about wages)
Good Luck. Mike.
