I just got myself a Rackspace cloud server yesterday, I was trying the following things on it:
- Use it as a VPN server
- Use it as a Git source repository
- Have a server to play around with the new framework.
I am quite excited about this. I thought long and hard about going to Linode, Slicehost, or Rackspace. While Rackspace is the most expensive option if the server is deployed all month, I only plan on “using resources” or deploying my cloud server a few hours a month. I expect it to cost me a few bucks a month. I will use the Cloud File to store my images so I don’t lose all the configuration work that I’ve done setting up the systems. It is pretty cheap, about 15 cents / gig. I’ll try to post the steps I took for each tasks I did, maybe someone will find it useful.
On the way home from my basketball, I decided to stop by this famous juice shop in town that my fiancée loves, and bought her the medium-sized drink. When I got home and presented it to her, she was so happy. Happier than I could have anticipated! This small gift made her very happy! You don’t need too buy big gift to make someone happy, it’s the small unexpected gifts that matters in life.
Why? I think it’s because it shows you appreciate the other person all the time, and who doesn’t like a surprise?!
