Warnings!

  • Forever Cluelessβ„’ administrator @Not_Oles has no "technical background" and only "limited technical skills. . . ." πŸ˜€ @Not_Oles frequently messes up! 😱

  • MetalVPS has no billing panel and no server control panel. There are no preinstalled VPSes or containers. It's traditional, command line terminal via ssh until you install whatever you want. πŸ†• You get a juicy VPS into which you can ssh and install whatever Open Source software you want. Maybe you also can get a traditional shell account on Crunchy. :star:

  • Sometimes trusted MetalVPSians might or might not get sudo on the Node, KVM group membership, etc. Note that @subenhon has Crunchy Node sudo. πŸ™ˆπŸ™‰πŸ™Š

  • MetalVPS has no onboarding and no knowledge base. β™’οΈŽ

  • Account delivery might take awhile! 😴

  • Not for business use! Intended especially for computer learning and fun! πŸ€‘

  • Frequent maintenance reboots are guaranteed! 🌺 VPSes in this offer are set to restart automatically following reboot. :)

  • Please make your own redundant, offsite backups! It's easy to download or sync or clone your backup to a safe place. Please also make sure that you actually can restore from your backups! πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

  • Please think of your MetalVPS account as ephemeral! Our server might blow up! πŸ’₯ At any random second @Not_Oles or maybe you might reinstall the Node! 😸

  • Other MetalVPSians probably will see your name, your location, your account name, the processes you are running, and much other information. So, please do not put confidential information on the server. πŸ€”

    A little bit about it:
    "Endgame Research is a collaborative effort involved in the intersection of freedom advocacy, personal privacy, information security, data preservation, financial independence, and our goal is to ensure the fundamental right to not be known is never undermined."

    I plan to use it as a bastion, tailscale node, and SSH jump host for the time being

    Hi Mike! You are in! Could you please send $1.01 via Paypal to the email address on my profile? Then I will activate your VPS. Might take awhile since I am slow. Let me know, please if you want to be on the Node too. Glad to have you aboard! :)

    Only two spots left! :star:

    Hi Mike! You are in! Could you please send $1.01 via Paypal to the email address on my profile? Then I will activate your VPS. Might take awhile since I am slow. Let me know, please if you want to be on the Node too. Glad to have you aboard! :)

    Only two spots left! :star:

    Would love a slot on the shell node :--)

    Okay, excellent! Thanks for sending the funds, which I did receive. It's getting a little late here, so I might not provision your VPS until tomorrow. I will also give you an account on the Crunchy Node. More soon! Have a great evening! And thanks again!

    Hi @listerine90!

    Thanks for posting! I took a quick look at your website, at your Github, at your post and comment history here, and at a few other things. I need to meditate on all that I saw, so please give me time to consider.

    Best!

    Folks, all four VPSes have been assigned. Maybe it will be possible to make a few more VPSes available in a little while, if after we find Crunchy still mostly idling. :)

    Thanks to @crunchbits for making wonderful Crunchy available! <3 Thanks to @babywhale for bashvm! <3

    Got a "yes" on more Neighbors from each of our current Crunchy Neighbors! Also, Crunchy doesn't look especially busy:

    root@crunchy:~# uptime
     03:31:56 up 6 days, 11:53,  3 users,  load average: 0.35, 0.31, 0.31
    root@crunchy:~# 
    

    So, maybe tomorrow, I will use bashvm to make four more Crunchy VPSes, Specs as per the OP, and then eventually give them out. Might take awhile. Might need a reboot.

    If you want a Crunchy VM, please do read the OP, and then please do post here.

    Thanks to our wonderful Crunchy Neighbors! <3
