Ever wondered how much is costs to run a that gets a fair amount of traffic? Here's what it costs me to run my blog...

@kev I've got it pretty good I guess. The only cost I have is the CAD $1.17/month I pay for my domain+dns. Everything is run from a laptop in my house and even electricity is included in the rent.

@jbauer ah that’s pretty cool! Aren’t you concerned about the laptop going down?

@kev It's definitrly not as reliable as a VPS or enterprise-grade equipment but not really. If it does, I have backups and can re-deploy to another system in a few hours. Plus, critical things like email and the status page are hosted off-site.
