I have no idea how to =E2=80=9Erent=E2=80=9C CPU time secondwise on AWS =
other than registering and configuring e.g. a 12.1 FreeBSD machine. I =
went to lengthy application process where I had to give credit card =
info, phone number etc. and it ended up in having  a choice of testing =
(free of charge) a wimpy machine 1 vCPU, 512MB Ram, 20GB SSD. Everything =
else would cost up to 160$ (8vCPUs).

In the past, 25 years back, I only used to build ports. So that=E2=80=99s =
what I=E2=80=99m used to :)

And installing VirtualBox on FreeBSD doesn=E2=80=99t seem to be a snap.=20=
