Anybody with experience of cloud computing?
On the Ubuntu website there used to be a section where you could log in and run a Ubuntu command-line session online.
It's not working now.
Are there any other sites like this (that you have tried) ...
where you log in, load a virtual operating system and run a script or whatever?
(There are some websites where you can run a shell in the browser, but that's not what this question is about)

The alternative is a local VM on your desktop.
My own PC isn't good enough to run a VM.
Maybe I need to find a friend with a *fast* PC, mount the Linux Live CD iso, then run the script.
I could run Linux VMs 10 years ago.
Use Sun VirtualBox and a good Ubuntu OS. I suggest Xubuntu.
I have that on several computers, including this one where I'm typing now.
