1 month isn't going to get you much. I would just remember to cancel it Grin

For only 1.5 month?
How that can be useful?

Pretty good idea actually. The network could always use more full nodes and most VPS systems will be in data centers and positioned to be good peers, just don't use it to keep a wallet with actual coins.

If it gets successful, you can ask donations and run it for more time.

Put a BTC private key on the server, and set up a "Hack this website" challenge. First one to the key gets the bounty.

Seconded. I'm down for a game of Capture-the-Key.

Thank you for helping to strengthen the network. It looks like it shouldn't be too long before it syncs up and starts giving back.

Sent a small tip to your signature address. Keep it running and I might send more substantial coin your way later... Who knows maybe you should put up a quick web page on the server with a little bit about what you do in bitcoin with an address for donations to keep this honest node running in a data center.
