      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. To my surprise, I notice a email in my inbox today from none other than a "Gregory Clark" of Colocrossing threatening to sue vpsBoard for 'libel' in regards to a user made review of one of their companies, HudsonValleyHost. As you can imagine, this came as a bit of shock to me as vpsBoard itself does not publish reviews and instead is simply a platform and outlet for end users to publish their experiences with companies if they do wish to do so. Furthermore the letter was addressed to me personally, as the owner of vpsBoard, accusing myself personally of libel instead of requesting information about the end-user who supposedly committed the libel. The thread in question that they don't want you to see was published in 2014 which can be read in full detail here: As always, vpsBoard has been an open platform in which users can share their experience and providers can, and are encouraged, to respond and share their side of the story as well. There have been many examples of complaints and issues being resolved using this platform and their failure to engage or resolve the issue with the end user who wrote the review is on them, not me. They make the claim that I allow this knowing it to be 'factually untrue'. This is indeed false. Based on a wide selection of reviews made on this company and others under the parent company's control during this time period, on vpsBoard and other similar sites, it would not be unreasonable to believe that the words written are true. The burden of proving the readers that the review is factual, exaggerated, or completely false is not on me. The timeline of events are known only by those who had direct experience with the situation outlined in the above thread which would be the original poster and any number of staff that worked for ColoCrossing or Hudson Valley Host at the time. I wonder if iNet / WebHostingTalk was served the same letter for the same thread made there, which can be read in full here: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1342625 This is a thread that WebHostingTalk temporarily "Featured", and interestingly enough the same thread was made on LowEndTalk itself right here: https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/20550/colocrossing-hudson-valley-host-where-is-my-refund/p1 and as you'll see, it's still up. So this poses the question, why is Colocrossing picking on vpsBoard? Was it a funny game for them to send me a threatening legal letter on my birthday? (The letter was drafted on the 24th, original email that I overlooked was sent on the 25th) What are their true intentions? And here I was, thinking that the hatchet had been buried after years of petty little back and forths.
  2. So, I am hyper critical of the sites I visit these days and even more critical of what is within the pages I visit. vpsBoard is one of my favorites, but in light of the NSA, FBI and their spying and entities like Google, Apple, Microsoft, AT&T, Verizon, etc. all being willing co-conspirators to undermine human rights, I don't want those spooks directly sniffing me while I visit here. These are the elements within one page I looked at from vpsBoard with elements that are of concern (i.e. leaking my viewing to third parties): 0. www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js - used for fancy traffic reporting. There are alternatives and free hosted ones with less malicious companies. 1. http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/prototype/ - PITA javascript crap. Sure, you need it for wizbang features. Can we just download this from Google and serve it directly from now on? 2. http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/scriptaculous/1.8/scriptaculous.js?load=effects,dragdrop,builder' - PITA javascript crap. Sure, you need it for wizbang features. Can we just download this from Google and serve it directly from now on? 3. https://www.google.com/jsapi? - PITA javascript crap. Sure, you need it for wizbang features. Can we just download this from Google and serve it directly from now on? 4. http://data-vocabulary.org/Breadcrumb - no idea what this is other than a tree builder for nested navigation --- can't we facilitate without outsourcing something so silly to remote site? For record, I block google-analytics at DNS level. Unsure if they ever work their way around that. I suspect they might. I typically block javascript, but the software here isn't so great/happy when you do such. Discuss.
  3. I know you all have been waiting for it and wanting to pad your post counts so here it is The official vpsBoard meme thread. Post as many times as you wish and Enjoy!
  4. Been wanting for a while to see a section to isolate all the hardware related discussions on vpsBoard. Hoping to isolate everything from hardware used to run your hosting company, to the latest phones and tablets to new ARM devices to anything vaguely tech related in one nicely stacked forum section. This would help folks hone in on such topics versus resorting to search to attempt to locate a related topic that already exists. Would make casual hobby reading easier and less time investment. What do others think? PS: @MannDude asked that I pose this to the community as of last week.
  5. As few others lurking here, I keep watch on the "View New Content" page to see what's going on as I am lazy to go through all the sub-forums. But, I have observed that at times, the list of contents are all gone and only few of the latest posts appear there. Is this happening just for me or has it got anything to do with the server? I usually keep watch on the posts sorted by Time Period and those which have "Content I have not read".
  6. "Are you wanting to post a VPS offer? STOP! New offers are not visible to the public until they're approved by a moderator. You're a new member so you do not have the required number of posts yet to create a public offerr. Please see each offer forums specific rules for posting so you do not waste your time. You must be a contributing member of the community before an offer will be made public." Just signed up and noticed the typo on "offerr" - not sure of best place to post so put it here.
  7. Congrats to @MannDude, vpsBoard crossed the 50k post mark. Know Mann was saving a bottle of something special for when we reached this milestone. Thanks to all the regulars, the new community members and those of you reading this three years later.

  9. VPS, being an acronym, I like to write it in capitals. Same is my view on the community name. What do you guys think about it?
