Current state of vpsBoard 02/04/2017Dear 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.

I have seen many of the providers who sells LowEndBoxes and other hosting services giving away gifts on their birthday. Last one among them being BlueVM, and I am happy to get hold of one of their semi annual OpenVZ package. But, usually birthday gifts are given the other way. The birthday boy/girl usually gets the gift. During my childhood days, I used to get a lot of them and the biggest/costliest one being my PC, which I received 8 years ago(It still works great and run Debian 7 with XFCE, being used by my younger brothers). After that, I don't remember receiving any gifts on my Birthday.
I have seen my parents exchanging gifts on their birthdays, and even my brothers receive a lot and I too gift them usually tech gadgets. The other chance for receiving gift at this age is from your lover, which unfortunately I don't have. I don't know if this is the case with all who just passed their teenage. My last few birthdays ended up with just few wishes in FB and Twitter and a very few phone calls and messages. Also, since my birthday comes in the holiday season here, I didn't get much chance to celebrate it during the school/college days.
What about the birthday celebration of others over here? Share about the gifts you received and how much it meant for you.
Now, coming to the main point, I am turning 23 tomorrow(May 25th) and I am happy to receive any sort of gifts :). Being a community that discusses about Virtual Servers, you can gift me with VPS's or the providers can offer me an internship or what so ever.
Side Note: I personally know few who are against birthday gifts and celebrations as they feel like every birthday makes you closer to death. This post is not for them.
