@jimeejones
it is mission critical my geth AWS runs smooth - it is my event listener for my dapp. thanks i will try that.
Sammy Libre
@sammy007
wondering why people running geth on AWS where bandwidth is expensive
jimeejones
@jimeejones
i need an always on geth
obviously i could run my own computer -but you know..
Sammy Libre
@sammy007
my geth is always on on 20 USD digitalocean droplet
jimeejones
@jimeejones
keep hearing about digitalocean - sounds good.
no experience with them at all. any pointers?
are they US based? if not = bonus.
Sammy Libre
@sammy007
not so good actually, if you need more "cores", prices are on a moon :(
no idea where they are based
jimeejones
@jimeejones
i dont need to mine - just need a stable geth instance.
stability/uptime is of highest importance.
Sammy Libre
@sammy007
you are good to go with 20 usd droplet then, without any ridiculous data transfer charges
Or Ricon
@rikonor
for a super cheap vm, see scaleway, about $2.5 a month for an arm based machine, also no charges on datatransfers
Sammy Libre
@sammy007
@rikonor geth is not perfect on their ARMs
but I tested only on 32bit
Or Ricon
@rikonor
I see
Sammy Libre
@sammy007
better take a dedicated Atom on online.net for 16 eur/mon. 8 real cores, up to 16 GB RAM
jimeejones
@jimeejones
data transfer/
ok - so which way would you go to achieve what i want
Sammy Libre
@sammy007
what is your location?
jimeejones
@jimeejones
no mining, but ability too is a bonus - more intereted in uptime
Sammy Libre
@sammy007
EU?
jimeejones
@jimeejones
Austalia - but my dapp is worldwide
it is for the end users of the dapp
Sammy Libre
@sammy007
jimeejones
@jimeejones
they invoke a method, event listener is fired on always on geth
ty sammy will look

@sammy007
Someone screwing testnet with GPU mining :-/
jimeejones
@jimeejones
not meee. i was once, bragged about how cool it was and then stopped - didnt realise diff.
for about an hour a afeww weeks back
jimeejones
@jimeejones
@sammy007 that box looks interesting thanks
Sammy Libre
@sammy007
@jambtt or better take another one for 16 eur, with way more RAM
jimeejones
@jimeejones
what sort of hashrate would you get out of those
Sammy Libre
@sammy007
also free basic anti-ddos as bonus
jimeejones
@jimeejones
could they be a mining rig as well?
Sammy Libre
@sammy007
hashrate? Don;t even mind to mine there, CPU mining is 20x lower than GPUs, lol
jimeejones
@jimeejones
they are not based in US either
oh right sorry no GPU
jimeejones
@jimeejones
@Zoltu sorry earlier i said i cant get mist working in windows 7, my apologies, i had just woken up and was being confused with Mix. Mist works fine in Win 7 - Mix does not. Sorry guys.

What are the risks of doing geth --rpc --rpccorsdomain "http://nigerian-prince.com"?
And then navigating to http://nigerian-prince.com.
Worst case scenario, I lose all of my ether?
Or not that bad?
jimeejones
@jimeejones
yes
well, only if they knew your password
Micah Zoltu
@MicahZoltu
Lets say they don't.
Or rather, lets say I don't give it to them.
jimeejones
@jimeejones
it would be best answered by someone with more knowledg
