Screencast on Amazon VPS

For those of you that don't know, Amazon AWS EC2 offers a year of their
smallest tier server instance (meaning VPS) for free.

The interface is a little difficult to navigate, but I've got a rundown
with screencast here:

You do get a monthly invoice, but all the fees will be rebated (so the
balance is $0) as long you don't exceed 10GiB of bandwidth transfer or
excessive disk writes.

Also, when you're doing screencasts or tutorials, it's great to be able to
fire up a virgin instance for the OS of your choice within just a few
seconds and then test that your instructions work on a clean install.
