ahh.. a little more of that sweet, exhilarating feeling of freedom as I move the last remaining stuff out of S3. TalentCourt was storing images there, but now it stores them inside it's own MongoDB :)
done! nothing in S3! nothing in EC2!
now I love these services, and I actually do have a lot of stuff in S3 (if Dropbox still uses it), and EC2 (used by heroku).
