      I can, but if I do, I'll disrupt my idling.

      Why do you keep extending them then?

      Exactly my thought. This forum is turning into a server collector's social club.

      Anyone here does Idle Dedicated Servers? or only VPS?

    • I bought two Black Friday 2019 deals, and both are idling.
      HostSlick VZ7 4GB is meant to be building Docker images.
      Gullo VZ7 128MB is meant to be running NodeJS.
      I hope I can get to them before the year is up.

      I have big dedicated servers (dual Cascade Lake, be jealous) idling in my office.
      I need to get my software benchmark running so that I can publish papers.

      I idle most of my servers. Providers are usually happy about that.

      I will try not to make more comments in the meanwhile.

      There should be a feature, silent vm suspension and deletion due to idling, but service still not terminated, so it can continue billing recurringly.
      Instead, the provider just sends you incoherent texts and intangible ufo abduction images, from time to time, via e-mail.
      If it's a very pricey premium plan, they can even throw in a mystery box from time to time, with various random, but extremely odd and related things inside.
      And if it's deluxe plan, you get love messages and tits adressed to you, but on your wife's number, additionally.

    • Well, if you want to talk idling gym membership...

      6years, 1month. I've been there twice. The first time I was waiting in line to get my tag to get in, but gave up and left. Second time I came, no lineup, got my tag and then left.

      Most expensive key charm I've ever bought.

      Which gym is it? And how much you paying lol. Most gym I know in US are notoriously hard to cancel. My neighbor has $10/month Planet Fitness membership and doesn’t go at all, and just keeps paying since it is so hard to cancel she said lol.

    • I was new to VPS and was using Scaleway and I think I deleted the VPS but forgot to delete the IP address associated with it, and was getting billed like $1~$2/month for long time lol. I didn’t notice/pay much attention to it in credit card since it was relatively small charge every month in credit card statement.

      I still feel salty about it sometimes

      I have a Hostsailor KVM machine for 6$/year, that I haven't ssh'd into even once. Just too cheap to cancel.

      Sorry, I'm not using uptime monitor or stuff like that. But yesterday I logged in and noticed the OS got upgraded from Debian 6 to Debian 8. The only time I remember both where down/had unuseable network was during the DDoS attacks. When I used one to tunnel all traffic of my open w-lan hotspot through it I could happily reach 150mbit at all times, same for using it as proxy for uTorrent.

    • I remember few years back I have a lot of idling server. As of right now, I am too busy to even idle a server. I terminated all of my idle server, including but not limited to yearly windows vps virmach and $1 Aruba cloud.

      Gym: a place with barbells that you can do dead lifts.

      Planet Fitness is a joke, not a gym.
      To cancel Planet Fitness, grab a barbell from their bench press, and do dead lifts in front of "no dead lifts" sign. Drop the weights loudly a few times.
      You'll hear the lunk alarm, and then your membership can be canceled within 5 minutes.

      I have $25 membership at a real gym. I don't let it idle for more than 4 days, except when I'm sick.

      Did you shut it down? It might become weaponized if left unattended forever.

      Hockey player branded gym. Paying $14.99/mo for life where regular price is $29.99 I think. Gym membership is like $49.99/mo for one a block away. I'm certain it's fairly easy to cancel by phone or email, I just say to myself "I'll go to the gym on Saturday" roughly 25 times a year.
