[IPython-dev] Easy Installation

Hi all

The first version of my app is live. I've called it NotebookCloud.
There's a lot more bells and whistles I'd like to add, but I want to
tidy up the code before I add anything new now. All the main features
are there and it all seems to work well. I've only tested it the
interface on Chromium, but it's standard stuff, so it should work in
all but IE.


You'll need an AWS and a Google account for this to work, but it only
takes a minute to set up if you have those already. You can delete
your account in one click and you can obviously log into AWS and
change your keys if you need to be sure my app hasn't got access any

I've set it up so that it will not recognise, or effect, anything on
your AWS account that wasn't launched by your NotebookCloud account.
Obviously, if you delete your account and create a new one, which
takes about a minute, it won't recognise anything it did from your old
account on your new one. You can only have up to one NotebookCloud
account per Google Account at any given time.

I'd be really pleased to know how you got on.
