    Please tell more about the previous experince with xx network :pray:

    That’s right, I used Hetzner instead of a home computer. Conclusions made, home computer, suitable for specifications, ready to work

    Sounds good. Indeed, Hetzner doesn’t have GPUs in their VPS so it wouldn’t work very well.

    Yes from me.

    Wish you luck !
