      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. Craziest mess I've seen in many years. Microsoft released a Tweeting bot the public could interact with. Allegedly an AI project. Quickly the bot went to insulting Mexicans, Jews and blacks. MS blames it on troublemakers finding exploits in the bot. Me I think the creators of the bot are sociopaths and the machine learning and code is bias from their own deficiencies. http://www.businessinsider.com/microsoft-deletes-racist-genocidal-tweets-from-ai-chatbot-tay-2016-3?r=UK&IR=T Or as RT said succinctly: Microsoft’s new AI chatbot @TayandYou censored after turning into hardcore anti feminist nazi in <24 hrs http://on.rt.com/782o Microsoft is doing their usual dog and pony show to clean up the mess and neuter Tay, taking the tongue from it's mouth and indoctrinating Tay with some 'reschooling'.
  2. So I am taking more to Twitter lately. I dislike Twitter, and intend on trying to do something more with it just cause so much data ends up there. Was looking at the list of Tweets on my daily toilet role and Colorado (allegedly) based VPB Hosting went off the rails today. This is the problem with aggressive and often outsourced and automated campaigns. Something broke and now crazy Tweets are going out and quite a few: source: https://twitter.com/VPBHosting VPB Servers [email protected] 4m4 minutes ago #JenniferLawrence nude photos http://linkis.com/www.instagram.com/JenniferLawrence/... snipped … via @instagram VPB Servers [email protected] 39m39 minutes ago Gain 8391 Real Fo//owers https://cards.twitter.com/cards/000000018ce549secl/000000... snipped … @ 2:13 PM - 22 Feb 2016 · Details VPB Servers [email protected] 5h5 hours ago Gain 8668 Real Fo//owers https://cards.twitter.com/cards/000000018ce549secl/ snipped … @ 9:34 AM - 22 Feb 2016 · Details VPB Servers [email protected] 6h6 hours ago #JenniferLawrence nude photos http://linkis.com/www.instagram.com/JenniferLawrence/145616125 snipped … via @instagram 0 retweets 0 likes Whole big mess pile of that crap today :) Careful out there dealing with automated 3rd party services and tools for fake maintaining your social. Guys need to keep credentials on lock down and eyes on the output or ugly stuff like this happens. I fully suspect some of the Tweets push to payloaded pages with infection elements.
  3. It appears Incero has rolled out a route optimization platform. This is generally a good thing. They took it a bit further and interfaced the optimizations to announce to Twitter. Incero Routes [email protected] 3m3 minutes ago from DAL, 138ms faster via Zayo, I do this all day! https://clitxt.com/t/rys-1446664735.txt … Check out the bot chatting about the optimizations: https://twitter.com/InceroRoutes
  4. I've had projects that were more widely known and less of a niche market its fairly easy to get Likes, Follows, etc... I'm wondering what is the best way to get the aforementioned for something that is more niche like VPS hosting? I get the whole having customers connect on social media but if your current customers don't use social media (I know right who doesn't these days) what’s the best way to boost this area of advertising (and since I don't have enough money to pay $300/day for advertising on say Facebook it would need to be on the cheap to free side of things).

  7. Here's the problem with paying third world clowns to mass spam offers on Twitter and other social... You end end up with your message slapped upside some fairly seedy content. Case in point, Vultr the DigitalOcean wannabe. https://twitter.com/search?f=realtime&q=vultr&src=typd Go to ALL view. 1.

  8. Rather funny, and poetic. Burst.net had 36.4K followers on Twitter very recently (in the past week). http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?hl=en&q=cache:g0peXN-nS4gJ:https://twitter.com/BURSTNET%2Btwitter+burstnet&gbv=2&ct=clnk Now today, they have 2 followers: https://twitter.com/BURSTNET Talk about some mass movement of unpopularity. Mass unfollow for Burst.
