    I looked at the AWS website and it’s really confusing to search for prices and things on it. There are so many categories to choose from (very daunting). I hope they make it more simple. I have a website and domain with HostGator based in Texas I think and I am paying around $15.00 a month for unlimited space and lots of extra features. I have home servers too but my upload is only like 20mbps with Shaw Cable right now. If I want to get SSL features on my home servers it’s quite expensive (over 60 dollars per certificate), you need a revocation server service to get the full advantage of SSL.

    I wonder if there is some anxiety with getting this cloud to the client done right. Its a little more involved than just looking at 3d and making tv’s or glasses and software drivers. I hope IFC members take some time to conclude that what they are doing is a tough task. Is it a lot of Fun? and you guys must be like celebrities in the Computer World, Hehe ;)

    I’m watching these videos of the IFC conference and it seems like it’s very welcoming and social to let others use powerful computer systems in the cloud. I think it will be a successful mission and we’ll finally be able to use our Unlimited Data bundle we get with our Internet Packages as of late.

    Have a good holiday everyone, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. :woot
