I don't see a minute or two being a big deal (at least until we actually
get something like PQM running on that machine). I may forget to shut it
down from time to time, but a few minutes isn't a big deal.

I can certainly start it, and then go check my email.

That said, it would certainly be good to get some automated testing
running. But since that didn't get set up on Kerguelen either, I
certainly don't think we have to pay $90/month just so the connection
times are instant.

As it gets used more, we can increase how much it runs.
