Hello! Just a short update regarding the free hosting (I hope this is not too annoying but I received several emails from uses that saw this on the list so it could be interesting): we have now updated the system with more RAM and solid state drives. We have also removed the invitation key so everyone can apply at http://1.ai (provided that something that makes sense is written in the about you/motivation field. If you read this mailing list just note that and it will be fine - accounts are activated daily).
The whole system is written in Camping + Bash and it was a bit of a challenge but also a lot of fun to learn the camping way to do things :) Yet this is just free hosting ..so what is new ? Well we were thinking to make the service more special by adding an automatic live sync of user space (and all the relevant apps) in 2 more servers. This will include the mysql database if needed so for example if your app is at campingapp.1.ai it will automatically be live synched in 2 separate servers so for example campingapp.1.ai campingapp.2.ai campingapp.3.ai and the main domain campingapp.dotgeek.org will automatically switch in case that a server becomes unavailable. What do you think about this ? It is probably not needed for most programmers that just want a space to try out things so we could also simply have a regular backup on S3 and similar services but it would certainly be something that, as far as I know, nobody offers ?
