Wow, about a month ago Spot (ex-Spotinst), the service that can auto-restore an EC2 spot instance after it gets killed, fixed their arm64 support! (Used to be that it would always set the AMI’s β€œarchitecture” metadata to amd64, haha.)

And of course their support didn’t notify me that it was fixed, the service didn’t auto-notify me that an instance finally was successfully restored after months of trying and failing, AWS didn’t notify either (it probably can but I haven’t set anything up?), so I wasted a few bucks running a spare inaccessible clone server of my website. Oh well, at least now I can use a spot instance again without worrying about manual restore.

UPD: hmm, it still tried i386 on another restore! dang it.
