      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.

      -MannDude

  1. The cesspit / chat thread.

    Perhaps he has hidden too many beers :)
  2. Raspberry Pi SD Card Corruption

    Just ask @William how many Raspberry Pis (v1) he burned by powering them from the GPIO port :) On the Raspberry Pi "servers" we used to offer we use neither the Micro USB connector nor the GPIO pins for powering, we directly solder power wires to the board.
  3. Raspberry Pi SD Card Corruption

    Better don't do this. The PCB traces leading to the GPIO 5V pins are very tiny, at least on the original Raspberry Pi. It is not designed to carry the full current that the Raspberry Pi draws. If you try to power the Raspberry Pi through the GPIO pin, this PCB trace will heat and eventually burn.
  4. Which is your favorite vacation place ?

    So have you been there (here)?
  5. They are designed to be used as small routers or similar, not for desktop.
  6. $129? How is this an alternative? By the way you can also look at the boards made by pcengines - http://pcengines.ch/apu2b2.htm
  7. Probably either some OpenSSL bug or that recent libc getaddrinfo vulnerability.
  8. What would be the justification of such a lawsuit? I mean a drive fails, Seagate replaces it for for free under the warranty, case closed. Now if they refuse replacing the failed drives while in warranty period, this would be a different story.
  9. People who don't want their personal information to be publicly visible in ARIN's or RIPE's database should use a single IP. People who need a subnet should be aware and should be prepared to have the subnet swiped and their information will be publicly visible by anyone checking the whois information for that subnet. I think it's common sense.
  10. The cesspit / chat thread.

    nevermind
  11. Unfortunately the noc-ps guy doesn't like WHMCS (i could understand why). So he doesn't offer a working noc-ps module for WHMCS 6. Fortunately the older versions for WHMCS 5 are not that hard to modify to work with WHMCS 6.
  12. Hardware for sale; Servers, Network, PDU

    Is VAT included in the prices? Would you remove VAT for EU companies with a valid VAT number? Are you considering selling servers separately from the HDDs (for some uses i could consider an old/used server, but wouldn't consider an old/used HDD).
  13. Selling stuff - location

    I'd say pick it up, get all the systems to your place, inspect them, clear data on the HDDs, etc. Then you can sell - maybe whole systems, maybe parts.
  14. We don't use any third party blocklists, but run internal honeypots. Connecting to one of those blocks your IP from accessing our network.
  15. Counting CPU threads

    It's 6 cores. Each hyperthreading core has 2 threads, so it's 12 threads total. I think the description is pretty clear.
