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 http://s3.cheesejaguar.com, then you get an access denied page.  However, if you type in http://s3.cheesejaguar.com/index.html 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.
