      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.

Introduction thread

432 posts in this topic

So sorry to break up this interesting ( <- not sarcastic, actually is interesting) discussion, but I thought I'd pop in to say hello. I'm D. Strout from LET (if you find my first name posted somewhere, do let me know so I can remove it). I'm not on WHT because I prefer smaller communities, which is why I'm here as well. Like a hipster, I'm in to forums before they're cool.

 

Anyway, mostly I'm just a web developer. I originally got in to VPSes because I needed more bandwidth than the free cPanel hosts I was on would provide, and I also thought I'd do some fancy stuff with the root access. Now I'm really in to VPSes and have amassed a decent collection of them. Like probably a lot of us here, I don't actually use them all all the time, though it's nice to have several to pick from when starting a new project. I pretend to be a decent sysadmin, but really most of what I know how to do is `apt-get update` and `apt-get upgrade`.

 

My work can be found at DStrout.net, which links to my other sites as well. I'm not a very good designer (though SHA1.in is my own not-half-bad design), more of a developer. Of all my code, I'm probably most proud of the PHP e-mail parser used at SpamLot.net. I'm getting ready to head off to college soon in the U.S. (call it what you like overseas), where I hope to continue programming and VPSing.

 

That's about it.

 

Happy to have you hear man! I've been thinking of adding a 'projects and programming' forum, I've got some small projects I've been working on for a long time that have never gotten that far. Would be cool seeing what some of our members can whip up!

"Projects I've been working on for a long time that have never gotten that far" - story of my life, man. Forum idea is good, though. I have finished a few projects here and there, and I'm in the middle of one that I've got high hopes for right now.

Nick here,

 

You may see me around here a bit, mainly lurking.  Unfortunately I'm no longer in the Web Hosting industry, not even the IT industry for that matter as I've been recruited in the NZ Army as a Driver.

 

My other "alias" is NickO which you may know from LowEndTalk.

 

=)

Meow, it's me. You can probably guess who I am and probably know who I am, so I will leave it to you guys. ;)

Also, just felt the need to bump every single thread in these forums..
