      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

I'd love to agree with this, however IPB's licensing setup is pretty ridiculous.

Yep. I still have a dev box but got pretty upset when I couldn't get support for it. They're weird.

Worst case scenario on a live box is I goof something up badly enough I got to do a restore from backup. A pain in the ass, sure, but not a catastrophic failure by any means.

This is the reason I stopped to host forums about 3 years ago.

Cheers boys. 

I've been gone for a week or so right now because I'm on holiday in Australia.  

It's absolutely wonderful.  However internet could be much better.  All the hotels I've stayed at have terrible WiFi and usually a max cap of around 600 MB a day.  Almost unusable.  My SIM card here has data and tethering but I only have 3 GB of bandwidth right now.  

So sorry for not being as active on here as I really should be.  Trip is going wonderfully (scuba diving, surfing, snorkeling, getting eaten by a fish (there's a story to this), etc.) and I'll still be here for another week (I have to "work" in Brisbane for a week).  So if anyone has to contact me directly just leave me a PM.  I'll be back regularly sometime mid next week.

Cheers!

I have to say, I'm disappointed.  I come back to get a laugh from the tinfoil shitstorm I figured would be brewing here after last night and... nothing.

I've given up on US Politics.

I've given up on a lot of things.

Right now, my top focus is to work on my own shit.

I really wish entire Trump going to the white house was a joke.  Just a joke that went too far.  But here we are now.  With poo in our pants.  I'd actually laugh if he was a decent president.  Maybe it's all just a hustle!

Honestly, I'm only interested now to see what happens.  I think it's done for in regards to good international relations (since the president basically holds all the power related to international affairs and Trump has almost no respect from the international community), but US's domestic policies I'm interested in.

What's also unfortunate is that the republicans now hold all the seats.

Hahahaha quite possibly the best quote ever!

It's certainly going to be an interesting wait until after january when he is sworn in.
What will his agenda be?... The implications could be catastrophic... or he could back flip big time? but only time will tell!
