How to host Automatic on a VPS for free

Viaduct is a hosting service (PaaS) offering both paid and free vps instances. Their free tier is actually quite good and is all you need to host backpack.tf Automatic. You get 1 GB of disk space and 10 GB of bandwidth every month, which is more than enough. Creating an account doesn't even require a credit card, making it accessible to everyone.   First, make sure Automatic works on your PC. Viaduct will need your login details, and it's easier to do this locally.   *IMPORTANT*
Replace this in your package.json (Notepad is fine)
"steam": ">= 0.6.8"
with this
"steam": "0.6.8"
(remove >= )
Viaduct won't be able to host your application if you don't do this.   Steps:
1. Go to https://my.viaduct.io/signup?_uref=00aa61and create an account.
2. Confirm email etc. and log in at https://my.viaduct.io/login
3. Create a zip file of your backpack.tf-automatic folder (containing bot.js). If you use WinRAR, remember to tick ZIP and not RAR.
4. Go to https://my.viaduct.io/applications/new/zip(not accessible in the UI, you must use this link) and drag the file onto it. Wait for the application to start up.
5. Use the Node.js template and continue.
6. Pick a name and domain. The domain won't be used by automatic but try to name it something unique. You'll want to use node 0.12.
7. Tick the deploy button and continue. Ignore the error, we'll be fixing that soon.
8. Scroll down to "Add your first process" and click the button.
9. Enter the following command and save your process (scroll down):

Also, you might want to lower the startup check time to 5 to speed things up.   It should look like this now:

10. Go to your application's Settings, then General, and make sure the 'Sleep processes' box is ticked:
  10. Click on the big "DEPLOY NOW" button in the header.
11. Select the first version and deploy your application. If you ever need to update your instance, just drag a new zip file onto the box.   You should be done now. If you want to see Automatic's logging, view your logs like so:
  and then select web.1 to view its output. The page is live so you won't have to reload it.   If you want to close the Automatic process, delete its process (edit the process, scroll down and click delete) and redeploy the latest version.   And you're done. ez

Life

So i moved to Jordan the last week, wether it was me having some tears leaving my mom or my mom talking in the i dont want to cry voice, it was hard, i always treated my mom like my princess/friend the i will joke with at all times and love her more than my wife that i still didnt marry, and because i'm the youngest of 4 and i was the last member in my family's home.   So i arrived here to live with 2 dudes who are 4 years older than me but they are awesome. So us being Syrians, we only (well mostly) hang out with Syrians only, so with 2 hangouts i got to know A LOT of dudes who are great in their own aspects.   As much as i didnt want to come here, it feels a lot like Syria. Last time i was really in Syria was 5 years ago, so it just feels good to be here.   University admission being a total bitch is a totally different story, but everything is now set and i will be studying Civil Engineering :3 First day of university starts 27th of september, wish me the best :-)

The unofficial list of SF character comparisons to forumers

I was bored. I got this idea while talking to Tanner. Let's go. Bob = M. Bison (Reason: He owns his hat) Tanner = Dan Hibki (Reason: He goes by Dan most of the time.) Valley_Forge = Rufus (Reason: Annoying) Brad Pitt = Ryu (Reason: He's the first member) Mr. Bucket = Ken (Reason: He's the second) Wooden House = Charlie (Reason: He was "dead" for a long time, and has returned) Lowell = Sakura (Reason: fuck you this is my list, and i main Sakura, so there.)

Quote Analysis: "Why did he choose you?"

Warning: Potential Kingdom Hearts 2 spoilers. If you're interested in the story and are playing/have not played Kingdom Hearts 2, there will be talk of the story. You have been warned.   A bit different from my other blog posts, I wanted to try analyzing quotes from video games and why they are so significant for the story of games.   Anyways, "Why did he choose you?" is a quote said by Roxas when he encounters Sora in the Station of Serenity after teleporting from The World That Never Was. Most people presumed that the "he" Roxas was talking about was DiZ or the keyblade itself, but these compare little to the true meaning of the mysterious he. Before entering The World That Never Was, Sora was blocked passage by a swarm of Nobodies that wouldn't let him pass, Axel, an Organization XIII member, went rogue and helped Sora by destroying all the Nobodies and clearing a passage for Sora to enter The World That Never Was. What is essential in Roxas' quote is that the mysterious he was indeed Axel, not someone else. Think of it as your best friend, the only one who cared for you in the world, killing himself or putting himself on the line of danger for someone else that you don't even know (or maybe even hate). Wouldn't you feel angered that someone you may not like was saved because your friend willingly sacrificed himself for them? This is what makes this quote so significant. Roxas was not present during the time Axel told Sora about Roxas and how he was waiting for him. Instead, Roxas wanted an answer on why Sora, out of all people, was the one Axel decided to sacrifice himself for and to see if Axel's sacrifice was in vain or if there really was a deeper meaning behind it, which there was.   Anyways, that's my quote analysis. I may do more of these in the future if I see a quote I really want to analyze.

Got accepted in University .. Time for life to start

So i got accepted in Jordan, while it wasn't my plan, I am still really excited, especially that I will be able to live and go to the same university as my childhood friend! I will be attending Civil Engineering, YUY   I always loved Saudi Arabia, i will always love it, it just really fits my way of life. My Mom is my everything, i love her more than myself, it saddens me a lot that i will have to leave her for like 4 years (i will visit from time to time) .. i will miss my dad too .. but not as much as my Mom :/   Uni starts 6th of October, i probably won't have a good internet (or any at all) so i might be more inactive than ever.   I'm not a good student and i admit it, i never cared about school nor studied hard for it .. and now im going for the hardest university in Jordan, it will be a challenge, and hopefully i will do good in it   Wish me the best

University and .... Parents

I have ton shit of topics i wanted/still want to write, too lazy. Here's a quick one   So the hunt to find a university began when i graduated, and like any arab parent, my parents just really REALLY want me to study where they want me to study because apparently they know everything good in the world. So my parents were like "oh give admission to all universities of the world and then we will help you to pick" i know that they dont want that, so fast forward, i got accepted in Turkey, Cyprus (Malaysia too but till 2016/2017 .. i might go there by that time). So i have to study 1 year before going to Malaysia. Here is where the story gets a bit complicated. Being a Syrian means i have to renew my passport every 2 years (screw you ass president) .. Turkey/Cyprus dont require Syrians to have a visa, and universities are relatively cheap (2.5K dollars per semester) .. so i was like great, i will go there with my friend and it will be great. BUT NO, (remember that part of admit where ever you want ? yea i know that that wasnt going to happen) my parents decided that i should study in Jordan. I hate Jordan, but just because my parents said so and keep making excuses how bad turkey/cyprus is, i have no other choice really. Admission in jordan is just so complicated (welcome to arab world) i am hoping that i dont get accepted .. it is not the right mentality but at this point i dont care anymore.   Meh. I still love my family and life tho, it is just this part of life that i hate :/   Stay cool

Dreams

Maybe the horrible dreams that I have occasionally at night are to blot out the previous memories of better times so I don't get preoccupied by them.

Follow-up: Crowdfunded suggestions

Part 1: http://forums.backpack.tf/index.php?/blog/121/entry-371-idea-crowdfunded-unusual-suggestions-requests/   Unfortunately I don't think it got quite enough interest, so I'm proposing something slightly different, more in the spirit of challenges of the week (is that still a thing?): Every now and then (maybe every week, maybe less,) I would release a list of unusuals I feel should be updated using backpack.tf/calculator, probably on this blog. A passed suggestion would level up a special badge provided by backpack.tf Enhancement Suite. That could lead to additional perks but I'm not sure right now how that would work.   Thoughts?

Idea: Crowdfunded (unusual) suggestions (requests)

People will be able to request price updates on any item, but Unusuals in particular. Interested suggesters can take the bounty and make the suggestion. If it passes, they will be paid the reward set. A request with a higher bounty could be created for a set of items which a suggester would have to tackle. In case of competition in such a request set, the reward is split.   Let me know what you think. If there are interested funders and/or suggesters I might work out the idea further.   PS: This will be a community thing and is not a site suggestion.

Rant: "l8"

Do you know who says "l8"? People who are rude and have no regard for anyone that might be a bit out of the loop. Someone who says, "This was posted a while ago." isn't bad since they're at least being moderate about it. However, someone saying "l8" or "so l8" is rude and inconsiderate since they didn't even take the effort to write a proper sentence and instead had to resort to Internet shortcuts. Note that saying "l8" doesn't contribute to anything and instead is spam. If you've seen it before, just ignore it instead of going out of your way to insult the person.
