Anyone have experience with DaaS services?
I'm essentially looking for the ability to have a Linux (preferably Ubuntu) desktop that is hosted on a virtual cloud that I can remote into.

I know of a few and when I wanted one I chose Digital Ocean. I used to use it for building android from source but now just some web site testing. You will have to install the desktop and remote package yourself though on some distros.

https://www.digitalocean.com/?refcode=7e1f82f7cb31

You can't beat the cost either. $10-$20 a month for a decent box and all of their systems run SSDs. These machines will have full external IP Addresses so I recommend a firewall. They are more setup to be servers but they do not have an issue with users installing the desktop environments. If you needed help I could walk you through installing the desktop environment and then enabling remote access. There are some great tutorials right on the site as well for doing this that even include making the firewall changes to only allow remote access from your computer and a few other things.

The pricing for backups is 20% of the cost of the virtual server. So if you want to enable backups for a $5/mo virtual server, the cost for backups will be $1/mo.

The price for snapshots will be $0.02 per GB of snapshot storage per month.

You can start with the $5 a month one and resize to a larger droplet if needed. I believe you can also go down in droplet size.

"Please note that once you resize to a larger disk, you will no longer be able to select a smaller plan for a fast-resize. This is because there will be a disk mismatch and we do not currently support shrinking a virtual server's disk." But you can shrink the CPU and RAM if you give it too much.

Snap shots are very cheap and allow you to get a little crazy with changes since you can easily restore the system in a matter of minutes. You can also create new machines from a snapshot and run things side by side. You are only every charged for what you use and destroy droplets at any time.

Hope this helps and if you do give them a look please use the link provided as you will get $10 in account credits. *I get $25 once you get to $25 in total billing. This is basically a free two month trial for you on their smallest size droplet.

Jacob Kaplan-Moss on why he's pledging $5,000 in matching funds to the Ada Initiative:

"I’m eager see the Python community step up and support the Ada Initiative. By donating, you’ll accomplish two things:

1. You’ll prove that the Python community stands for equality and inclusiveness, and against harassment, abuse, and hate.

2. Your financial support will arm an organization dedicated to inclusiveness, and one that’s having steady, measurable success."

http://jacobian.org/writing/python4ada/
Please join me in helping making the Python community better by supporting the Ada Initiative. Last year, the Python community raised $10000 for the Ada Initiative. This year I am betting we can beat that record and raise $20000! Carl Meyer, Alex Gaynor, Jim Meyer, and I are pledging to match up ...

Introduction
Hey, I'm Becky Taylor!

You can find me at the following places:

Who am I? 
I am a female gamer, working in the game industry, and have a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Communications Media with a concentration in Interactive Media.

I am pretty much a tech-nerd. I'm very passionate about design and technology. I spend a lot of time researching and reading about new inventions. 

I am an avid computer gamer, though sometimes I sway over to console games. I mainly play RPG's and FPS's, but sometimes play other genres.  My favorite games so far have been Halflife, Bioshock, and Fallout. Oh, and I'm also known to pay MMORPG's such as Dragon Nest and FF.

I have a cat named Kesi.  She is always by my side, and if you haven't noticed yet, I take lots of pictures of her. She is the smartest cat I have ever met, and gets into tons of trouble.

I have a metal plate in my head and I set off metal detectors. True Story :]

Their drinks are good, but expensive. The food is extremely bland each time I give them a shot.

I ordered and the waiter delivered our food in under a minute, it was obvious it had been sitting there as it was cold. I told the waiter that and he asked if he should microwave it. I ended up ordering a salad after as the steak was disgusting. The salad was brown. I ended up speaking to a manager who was very rude and insulting.

Food was excellent with a great variety of choices on the menu. They gave you plenty to eat for a decent cost. Service was slow after we got our meal, we waited a while to get more water and our check.

The past three times I've been here the service has been terrible. The waitress has been rude and slow. The food was cold, or over cooked. After the third try, I gave up and decided not to come back.
