Yeah.. that's just too hacky. and always felt that way.
I basically have to modify the installation.. double check everything
to ensure that all persistent data is in
the s3 storage. I think amazon's has a lot of potential. but not in
what I was looking for.
I just want basic VPS packaged solutions. Which I think Gene company
Ubuntu installed isn't quiet what I was looking for, I'm sure it would
be a marketable solution, which
is why I'm willing to pay someone to do it for me and not have to
waste my time trying setup
all these silly things..and I'd much rather use them.
ie. I want to play with X, Y, Z technology. Or.. man I wish I had an
eucalpytus could to see what it can do....
I want here you go.. have $40 bucks this month...and I can play with
this stuff... instead of spending 2 weeks tinkering
with things to make them work...in order to realize that this doesn't
do anything close to what I wanted...
Anyways... All around.. thanks for the responses...
On a side note since the list has been quiet.. I'm going to start yet
another probably long thread.
