I wanted to pull up a new Ubuntu server. Normally that takes a few hours. I have to download a new CD image, install manually on a machine. Not today. Today I typed: ec2-run-instances ami-179e7a7e -k gsg-keypair BAM. Ubuntu 8.04 image is up, and mine, and $0.10 an hour. I feel like I just hit the crack pipe this is so powerful. This will change everything.
