Putting idling lifetime VPS to good use
Currently my two ZAP Hosting lifetime VPS are mostly idling (except for acting as personal vpn wg/ovpn), which is true to the LE nature, but also not that satisfying. So I thought I'd ask what you would be hosting on such specs, or whether resources can be donated while idling (e.g. to help research against cancer/other diseases)?
I have the following two VPS available:
1. Finland LXC VPS:
Basic System Information:
Uptime : 0 days, 0 hours, 14 minutes
Processor : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2680 v2 @ 2.80GHz
CPU cores : 2 @ 3131.169 MHz
AES-NI : ✔ Enabled
VM-x/AMD-V : ✔ Enabled
RAM : 8.0 GiB
Swap : 0.0 KiB
Disk : 24.5 GiB
Distro : Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
Kernel : 5.4.65-1-pve
VM Type : LXC
Net Online : IPv4
2. Germany Rootserver KVM:
There's some things I have thought of but discarded: Own Uptime Robot (Hetrixtools is just better and I love it), hosting a random csgo gameserver for ppl to play on (I am in no clan anymore so it would be just one server out of many some random people may enjoy/or not), host mirrors for debian/ubuntu (there are enough already?!).
What I had in mind for these servers was to be a fun environment for me to try out various apps from awesome-selfhosted, learn docker etc, but I haven't had much time lately.
Anyway, any ideas are welcome
If you recommend a use-case for a specific vps of the two, please say so and why.
Otherwhise I will assume that your suggestion would run just fine on both vps.
