I'm not going to lie to you. It's big.
It's real big.
But size isn't everything. Hell no. I've seen people do things with a 32MB VPS that would make your eyes water.
Sure, they knew their stuff and could work it like a master puppeteer and sure, some people would point and laugh but you know, ain't nobody got time for that. Bring out the big guns.
"Dave", I'd hear them say. "You gonna show us something impressive on that thing?"
"No", I'd say, loading up my bloated Ubuntu desktop. "I ain't got nuthin to prove to no-one"
"We don't sees it like that!", they'd reply, fingers resting lightly on their Lynx browser.
Then suddenly, we'd both ls -la our Apache processes. First one worker thread, then two more. Before you knew it SSH was away and SMTP was junking spam quicker than you could say me gusta!
I knew it wouldn't take long and soon, ol 32MB VPS was struggling. Response times shot up. HTTP requests slowed to a crawl. Loads hit all time highs. I had him where I wanted him.
I tapped on my desktop IRC client, "Do you even lift?"
I waited... but there was no reply.
