I’ve been running on Amazon EC2 for nearly a year now and I’m jumping ship before I have to pay. I know it sounds bad, but I really don’t have the money to keep an EC2 VM. I want to start using App Engine but don’t have enough time to get all my junk setup to use it and I would have to pay for a MySQL backend with them. Well, lucky for me I have an old box sitting around with a 3.0GHz Core 2 Duo, 4GB DDR2, and 2 x 160GB SATA2 drives.I think I am going to setup a local system with a DDNS and house my own server.

What do you really think?
