      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

  2. So.. Long story short I moved to Birmingham, Alabama from my house Eastlake, Michigan nearly 2 months ago now. You might wonder why, like omg why would you move away from the lovely state of Michigan with all their cold weather and snow./s @KnownHost-Jonathan offered a position at KnownHost to me several times and I suddenly I decided.. Sure why not? Before I moved down here I looked at several places. Then I found an apartment complex that was new construction and still being built for the most part was alot nicer then any of the others I looked at soo why not I signed a lease and moved right in. Some pics: On the drive down here there was nothing but construction, construction and more construction.. 812 miles later and some posing at the Welcome to Alabama sign I arrived at my new apartment. First thing I think of when I hear Alabama is when Top Gear drove though Alabama https://youtu.be/pKcJ-0bAHB4 But its actually not that bad people are nice except for the drivers they well suck... Everything is coke apparently and everyone hates this sign: This sign is outside of our old office which we recently moved out of: Don't have really any pics of the new office @ 1625 Richard Arrington Junior Boulevard South, Birmingham, AL.. Not sure if I am allowed to take them. As for Birmingham there is really..nothing interesting to do there..at all...no joke..the closest casino is like an hour + away. But there is a Giant statue called the Vulcan near our new office which I visited for the first time finally after driving by it a couple dozen times which is pretty neat. Tried to get a decent pic of the skyline from above but it was quite foggy. Got a nice on on the drive back though: If you have 20 minutes of your life to spare I have a couple videos of driving to and from work: https://youtu.be/WCD1rNKem1U & https://youtu.be/nMlPvZxQPTA ... In conclusion Birmingham it self is not bad its a decent place to live if as long as you don't chose a spot in the ghetto to settle down in. Birmingham just not entertaining in anyway.. I herd there is a pretty large night life and live music downtown, just haven't had a chance to check it out yet so that might be a thing. The work at KnownHost has been great though, I love my co-workers, I love the work. I also love the customers. @KnownHost-Jonathan is an awesome boss and I can't believe I get paid what I do for what I love to do. *shhh I think I we are still hiring: http://careers.knownhost.com/
