19:23 semiosis anyone else here use ec2 ebs optimized instances?
19:24 semiosis i seem to be given much slower CPUs for ebs-optimized instances than regular instances
19:25 semiosis like 1.8GHz ebs-optimized vs 2.6GHz regular
19:25 semiosis could just be bad luck of the draw though
19:48 joshu hey semiosis how's it going?
19:50 semiosis busy busy busy
19:51 joshu you use AWS for work?
19:51 semiosis yes
19:52 joshu linux vms only or dark side too?
19:52 semiosis linux all the way
19:52 joshu I ask as I'm looking at AWS for the latter for the first time
19:53 joshu migrate from on-site VMware vSphere ESXi to AWS VPC
21:05 pdurbin wow, so many differnt types: http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/instance-types/
21:16 semiosis joshu: i thought about using a windows ec2 instance to build native packages of a javafx app we're developing, but decided instead to just borrow time on windows boxes in the office
21:16 semiosis vnc across the office lan is so much better than rdp over the internet
21:17 joshu hehe true
21:18 larsks semiosis: Ya think?  I've generally found RDP sessions to be nicer to work with (rdesktop happily lets me change my virtual desktop resolution, but my vnc clients do not -- that I'm aware of).
21:18 larsks But local is certainly faster :)
21:21 semiosis +1
21:22 joshu larsks if you haven't already you should have a look at freerdp instead of rdesktop
21:22 * pdurbin wonders how licensing works for Windows VMs on EC2
21:24 semiosis pdurbin: there's a small additional cost baked into the hourly rate for windows vms
21:24 joshu pdurbin Amazon takes care of it…yeah what semiosis said
21:24 semiosis pdurbin: but that's nothing compared to the huge emotional cost of using windows lol
21:25 joshu semiosis haha you're so right! Why that OS even exists :(
21:28 pdurbin heh. gotcha. thanks. the microsoft tax :)
22:12 semiosis trying out the new eclipse 4.3 (kepler)
