Amazon AWS is pretty awesome

After getting S3 setup, I am very happy with it.  Pay as you go service couldn’t get better than this.  It has some interesting “features” though, which are kind of weird.  I wanted to setup a static html index at the base of my S3 storage, but it doesn’t let you do that.  If you type in, then you get an access denied page.  However, if you type in then you go to the static page I wanted.  Small fun things like that, but I guess it’s aimed to prevent you from hosting dynamic HTML/PHP/CGI pages on S3, instead of using their Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2).  If I had more money, I’d definitely be playing around with EC2, but as it is it’s currently $70 a month for pay as you go.
