    What to do with my VPS?

    Hey! I have two servers doing nothing. One was given to me for free and the other one was a $9 for a year deal. They are both lowend (256 ram, 10 gb disk) One is on a gigabit line and the other one's 100 Mbit.

    What can I run on them to make use of them? :P

      Ah, I'll experiment some with VPN. Shouldn't be too hard to setup!
      Normally I just tunnel through the ssh if I want some privacy.

      I think I will expand on your idea and write a small nodejs app to fetch something funny every day and send it to me. Thanks.

      where did you get 256mb ram for 9/yr?

    • URPad, $12/year. That's the best I've seen.

      You could keep reading this on a site infamous for its ties to (ahem) one particular organization, or you could check out vpsBoard, which has no such ties and tolerates no bullshit. Your choice.
