I ran `docker-machine create --driver generic --generic[…] <somename>` on an Ubuntu Bionic VPS that i don't feel like wiping, it did a bunch of weird stuff including changing the hostname to <somename>, I just hope it didn't mess up stuff too badly. It then failed bc no ports but :22 were open.
I think i will just do forwarding docker socket over ssh bc i don't feel like messing with setting up forwarding ports for docker-machine over ssh.
What i want to do is to run VSCode, along with all it's extensions and functionality, sparing maybe just the renderer part, from per-project Docker containers, with Docker being on the VPS. Still thinking whether to run renderer locally or just TigerVNC. Maybe VNC won't be as sluggish or problematic as i am afraid it could be. At least i get zero fear about my laptop battery dying and even more certainty that the netbook i would be using doesn't impede the performance.
