      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

  1. vpsBoard summer newsletter

    Thanks for the plug @MannDude. We have definitely been very busy getting the solid foundation together and automating as much as possible.
  2. HostGuard ? Dead or Alive?

    We are finishing up the new installation method today. Then Xen / migration scripts will receive some love. I know you've been waiting on Xen Anthony.
  3. HostGuard ? Dead or Alive?

    We are definitely still around. More capital was raised to keep funding development (these things take money), so that's why we've had a bit of a hiatus for the past 2 months. Every thing has gone back in to full swing since last week. This we just moved in to a new CBD office yesterday. :)
  4. Leaving SolusVM

    Correct we are still around. Basically, we took the feedback from our soft release to take care of the main issues clients were having and automated things even further. These things take time and when our next release is ready, you'll hear about it.
  5. Stock Market

    Do some paper trading for practice and then get in to it. If you work at a financial firm you should be able to get some basic advice to have a little bit of fun.
  6. Do you use tapatalk for vpsboard/elsewhere?

    Have no issues with Tapatalk. I use it on multiple forums. Helps me keep track and respond on the fly.
  7. Looks like the guys at Google Glass think the same as me and I don't need glasses: http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-57617792-93/google-glass-now-framed-for-prescriptions/
  8. I'll keep an eye out for the pending feedback.
  9. We're considering moving over to Blesta then customizing to our needs. Blesta is just much nicer to work with. While the default WHMCS is great for an out of the box solution and basic ticketing, it does have its limitations.
  10. I'm in it to use technology to improve lives, whether that's through IT or games, I don't know sometimes. ;) My Dad had his own PC shop and I spent my school holidays there learning to build PCs. It's all come natural to me.
  11. We wrote our own control panel and it was one of the very things I wanted to automate first. Monitoring goes hand in hand with a control panel so it only made sense to unify the features. Depending on what resource is being abused, HostGuard automatically suspends the VPS and notifies the client. The various abuse metrics are configured by the Administrator, so you can tweak it to ensure you don't get false positives and depending on how verbose you want it monitoring your services.
  12. You should move it outside so they get some fresh air. Some days it's hard enough just to get a lunch break and clock off on time - it helps to walk outside, enjoy the sunshine and get some Vitamin D.
  13. Wifi Pineapple

    I've been waiting for Mark V to come out. This will be a late Christmas present for myself.
  14. Heh, that's definitely a nice purchase indeed, but I'm personally waiting for the Oculus Rift myself. Coming from world renowned eye surgeons my relatives work with - never go LASIK. You are way better off wearing glasses. If you're going to get contacts - get disposable ones. Well, they're all disposable, but opt for the 24 hour or weekly ones. The shorter the life span of the contact lens, the better they are for your eyes because they are less durable by letting more oxygen through. Are Google planning to make the glass used in these prescription based for those that need it?
  15. To Phone or not to Phone

    Every time you make a call, you should be logging that in the relative ticket. Likewise, when you send an email, follow it up with a call. Communication is key in any business. Obviously though, you use common sense when either is more appropriate.
