"Developers and Open Source authors now have a massive amount of services offering free tiers, but it can be hard to find them all to make informed decisions.

This is a list of software (SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, etc.) and other offerings that have free tiers for developers."

I lost my original copy of Cyberia, so I’m grabbing a used copy on Amazon for some research. I have a PDF copy from backing Team Human, but the print size is too small for e-reader devices.
