Whirr

Whirr + Spot Prices + Thanksgiving Weekend means that I can run large m1.xlarge instances on the cheap.

<griping>Also, Whirr is essential, but the project has a sort of “forgotten Maven site” feel about it. It’s annoying when an open source project has several releases, but no one bothers to republish the site. ┬áIt’s even more annoying when the “Whirr in 5 minutes” tutorial takes 60 minutes because it doesn’t work.</griping>
