    for the ppl who run their bot(s) on a daily basis, do you guys just let the program run on your main computer or do you have a spare computer solely running the program? My computer (screen and hd) goes to sleep when I leave the house which makes the bot stop. I know I can turn off the energy saver thing, but not sure if thats good for the computer. Currently I'm on a macbook pro running vmware..maybe invest in a cheap PC? Black Friday is around the corner...

    Why don't you go VPS route? You can leave it running 24/7 365 and it does not cost an arm to get one.

    I use sharkservers. They are a good company and cheap. Also very active on this forum. Look them up.

    A VPS will help.
    Check the Marketplace. There are a few providers there.

    P.S. ORM I wouldn't recommend that provider. Had issues with upgrades and haven't been able to run Gscraper with them.

    Seems like we both had different experience with them. I dunno if their service is still on the same level so you might be right tho... :)
