What would you like to do?
Start your cloud computer from Paperspace (http://www.paperspace.com/) using a regular web browser (e.g. on a Fire TV stick). Just upload this to your server or webspace and then call it from your desired browser. You need to add the machine id and the api-key to the URL (e.g. startPaperspace.html?machine=ab1c2n345&key=1234567890). Save this to …
