Experience with development server 7x cheaper than Linode/DO

Preamble As I wrote a few weeks ago, I am currently developing an open-souce ithare::obf library. And apparently, to make sure it works more or less consistently, a Damn Lot(tm) of randomized testing (and preferably under different compilers) is necessary. As a result, last week I found myself in a search for a cheap Linux box […]

Quote: “Whenever a developer is using something named ‘X Emulation over Y’, she may expect that a faithful emulation exhibits the same properties as original (non-emulated) X.”
Another Quote: “Unfortunately, as discussed in detail above, none of five implementations is a really faithful EEPROM emulation.”
