Heck, mining at PTS pool gets me nothing so far, and I have i5 2500K and i7 920 getting almost 20H/s each.
Surprisingly, an 4.5 Ghz i5 2500K with 4 threads gets about the same hash rate as an 3 Ghz i7 920 (quad core) with 6 threads.

In the putty/SSH session, when inputting the commands, (this only applies to beeeeer) install YASM.
sudo apt-get install yasm
BEFORE installing the miner. It's the only way it will compile.
The cloud instances are charged by the hour, which is how I got the 17.1 days time limit at 24x7. So, which ever instance you nab, be sure to take into account how long you can use it for. Before the time is up, delete the instance so that they can't charge you past the free trial.
