Description

If we make the service as easy to use as we should, people will make servers and never touch them again.

Since ram is probably the limiting factor, we need a way to encourage users to turn off machines they aren't using.

Someone suggested emailing users every so often, requiring them to confirm that they are using the machine. This isn't very burdensome and might work, so I think it's a reasonable first approach.

We're using about 75% of our RAM and half our disk, so it's time to seriously think about this.
