I spoke with the guys using the service during the day and got some insight into what they observed at their end. Firstly – and this was very kind of them – they were worried about the cost impact on me of all these requests. Well, a standard website on a small VM is 10c an hour so if you run this non stop for the entire business day and I’ve scaled up by an instance, I am going to have to come up with 80c!
