There are many such services including 'snapshots delivery' that allow you
to test pages on remote machines without causing too much harm (i.e. having
very little control).
In the spirit of community, would you like an account on a *nix machine with
fast LAN in Manchester? I am getting a new machine back (hard-drive crash
under warrantee) and will probably put Ubuntu on it. It's switched on 24/7
and it's never used for anything apart from storage, music, and some
infrequent SSH. Hence, I don't care much about its performance, so might as
well share it.
