I subscribed to a promotion at Vultr.com ($100 credit for 2 months - I was going to test this VPS provider anyway ..

I thought the chain would sync faster on a more powerful machine (compared to my home mini PC).
I remember the days when the db had to run in memory ... seems like yesterday ... db size is growing rapidly.
