Word has it that the Arcus Brothers, last seen running quietly from the mess at Burst.net in Pennsylvania, are considering jumping back into hosting.

They've been out asking for pricing for a new company that will focus on .... drumroll ... VPS.

May I recommend a modern bastard name for the new venture?  burstd.com.. yeah it's available... and appropriate.

Did you miss all the multi-month drama with Burst?  Take over by vulture investment fellow... months later, moved the company out of Pennsylvania real quick and ditched customers.  This included leaving customer servers in Dunsmore datacenter unattended.   Others moved to North Carolina had big downtime and issues.

Arcus brothers whole time kept their mouths shut about what happened and why.

The McMega thread on WHT during and after the snafu:

and no, Burst.net appears to have failed to pay their debt obligations and/or such debt was called due prematurely and vultures weren't playing and took the business.
