I have created an EC2 image with Pharo and Smalltalk in the past. If people
are interested I can bring it up to date and make it public so everybody can
try it out.

There are other cloud computing options besides Amazon's AWS EC2. For
example from Rackspace. But I think AWS is the most mature and has the most
