      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.

  8. KnownHost Hiring Technical Support Operators (Birmingham, AL)

    It's been idle most of the winter though. Even when it was still hot outside people slowed down on consumption. Everyone started watching their weight all of the sudden :p I don't know that we've even used it since @KnownHost-ChrisM has started have we?

    Uh oh, that's not intentional. The link is supposed to be http not https. We use a service for resume/app submission and they're not SSL-friendly by default so I'm still working on that with them. Requested a mod to fix link for now.

  12. Who was your first VPS provider?

    Come on back - we miss you too!

  14. He didn't say that. They can remove all physical assets/offices/etc. from the EU at which point they're basically giving a middle finger to the EU as the EU then has no way to "force" Google into paying any tax, VAT or otherwise. VAT might work in a pre-internet world, but VAT is not enforceable for other countries which have no physical assets in the EU as legally the EU has no way to go after say, a US company so the only thing is when you have physical assets in the EU that they could seize based on their laws. Without those physical assets, poof, they can't really do much to you (the company avoiding taxes there).
