As promised:

Summary findings:
1. Running _one_ cloud instance is very cheap (less than $5/month).
2. Running 5-6 instances from the same Amazon account gets you in the
$100-$200/month region
3. For some reason, instances in the Sao Paulo and Tokyo data centres
see much more traffic than other regions.

I would recommend everyone with an Amazon account spin up an instance
in Sao Paulo or Tokyo.
