No internet! I have been without home WiFi for a week now and I can't download big files over my hotspot as it is expensive. I need to download a Raspbian image for my Raspberry Pi but it is ~1 gigabyte. Been needing to get my Raspberry Pi set up to turn it into a server for a site I am currently creating.

    @Haxk20 I would like to go ahead and set it up on my local network, which means I wouldn't need to use my hotspot. Also this is a private server that I should be the only one using.

    @Haxk20 Also the data wouldn't be a problem if my internet provider would fix the network.

    Why is the Raspberry image stopping you? Develop locally and get a VPS. There's very few things more annoying than websites hosted from some dude's garage ☺

    @TheSommer The project I am doing now is small and private so their should be no one else using the service. Also I do not want to spend the money on a VPS / want to try to give my Raspberry Pi a purpose.

    Honestly, I get that. My 2B is packed away and I've felt the same way, but it's just so pointless to use. Services like C9.io scratched that itch perfectly. VPS's are surprisingly cheap!

    @TheSommer I will look into some VPSs later. I have always had the idea that they were expensive and stayed away from them. Thanks for the advice!
