I forgot to mention in the video that once signed up to AWS you’ll need to set your region as either Ireland or Virginia depending on whether you’re in Europe or the States. No other region works!!

Now for a sob story…

I lost my job. I have no income and I’m hoping to start making some money by doing what I love, which is this! If my video has helped you out and you’re feeling super generous then you can donate to me via paypal to help keep me going, any small amount would be greatly received, otherwise I guess it’ll be back to the call centres for me: http://paypal.me/PaulHibbert

Much love,
