I'm a huge fan of learning. :)
It's just that my brain is sooooo... small -- compared to the list of things I'm supposed to be learning right now.

Learning is awesome, but I just need a little less awesomeness in my life right now. :rofl:
Maybe you dont even have to buy a VPS to learn,just setup CentOS on your computer and start learning linux commands and setup a server localy,you can use it as a great home server and you can learn a lot about linux and networking
