My Bookmark sends me to 'New Posts'.Your loss! The front page has the latest news as well as the latest post - and the shoutbox, etc. I find this smf software is really good at presenting what we need on the front page. But hey, it's up to you.
But you can just click the banner to get there, too.
Anyway; anything worth getting on this sale?
Thanks Bird what is difference between convertible and standard ?Convertible is as it says; you can change the reserved instance to something - stronger or equal - later. But you're saving less. It's the "I'm unsure exactly what but I'll certainly need something" option
"...With Convertible RIs, customers now have the option at any time to change the instance family, OS, or tenancy associated with their RI. Via the EC2 Console or APIs, customers simply indicate what change they want to make, and the change is made as long as the exchange is for an equal or greater spend on the new Convertible RIs. "and :
That second screen looks like it - the hourly is zero on them.
I cannot figure out how to pay for the server I have for 12 months so I will just leave it monthly I guess
You can purchase a "reserved instance" in the ec2 console (4th item on the left in the "instances" section) - then it'll automatically apply to any matching server. This way if you need/want to start a new one and shut the old one down, it still applies.
You just need to make sure you buy the correct instance in the correct zone, that's all.
Free AWS server runs out this Saturday, and I have used up all my current emails.
A t2.micro server's rough costs all up are around $15 iirc. And then each tier is double as you go up. Bit less, as usually the biggest cost is the cpu power, then the storage (the drive attached) is a magnitude less, then traffic & S3 storage is yet another magnitude less (i.e. negligible)
Here's a calculator: http://calculator.s3.amazonaws.com/index.html - don't forget to change the region to "asia-pacific (sydney)"!
Note that at this micro level, the storage (drive) is still a significant cost. Also note that storage *speed* is dependent on storage *size* funnily enough.
Although in the t2 range everything is burstable - including i/o - these bursts can only be fairly short at micro level (a minute or two I reckon).
You can also buy reserved instances. That means you pay someting up front and pay less (or nothing) ongoing. Depending on utilisation this can be much cheaper - 20%-50%. To get the cheapest you need to buy an all-upfront 3-year instance.
But even a 1-year all up front saves a bit: instead of $10.69/mo it's $80 one-off (USD) for the cpu power.
But you change the instance type to t2.small, and you start losing money, so this is only a good option if you're sure this is what you'll need for all year.
That's a nice one, Joe. I've been to EC a few times, but haven't see that car yet. I think I'd remember, that paintjob looks great
Altho I haven't been out in the past few months. I used to mix it up with a few visits to Wakefield Park, too. It's a great little circuit.
I'm sure it'll be fun. But yeah, track days take a toll on the car. Lots of heat to get rid of, lots of brake pads & tyres to replace
My track toy is a Toyota 86. It needed a bit of attention before tracking, too, even though it was only a year old at the start.

Bought myself a 1995 WRX with a twin turbo driveline and brakes from the 2001 Liberty B4. Has a few STi options and coil-overs. Not a bad little start for a track car but still some work to do. A bit of dyno tuning to get the lag out between turbos and upgrade the brakes to the STi Brembos. Should be a bit of fun a few times a year. Track days, motorkhanas and the like
That was cheap! Well, it'll cost a bit more on the long run anyway, hehe. Feel free to start a thread to share the project details, for one, I'd be happy to read it.
