So right now this forum is hosted onto Scaleway’s starter-1XS instead of my own computer.
Why? Well, because I want to have it always on, and my PC isn’t and shouldn’t be. Also, coz i’m curious how difficult would it be to manage my own server(s?).
Even though i only have 1 Atom core and 1 GB of RAM (with 2 of swap), i don’t think that’ll be a problem as my number of visitors can be counted on a crippled hand while being blindfold.

Here are some rebuild times and other info. The runs were all done one after the other, so the vps may have both better days or worse, depending on how many other Pessimists are testing its speed:
