Well, I was going to wait off on introducing these threads as I wanted to do someone more noteworthy. At the time of the SolusVM exploits Phil from SolusVM told me via IRC PM he'd be interested in being the subject of the first of many planned threads in which the community gets to ask questions and get them answered. Basically, a Reddit style 'ask me anything // ask me almost anything'.

Well, I feel like the SolusVM stuff isn't as relevant today as it was weeks ago, and while I haven't tried to contact him in a few weeks my last attempt yielded no response. So I'll get things started and show you guys how this is supposed to work by letting you ask me stuff, to which I will answer, and this will allow you and the community to get a better sense of who MannDude is, and what I'm all about.

Doesn't have to be VPS related. Just whatever. Keep it PG-13 so individuals we set up to do this in the future won't be so reluctant.

BTW: In a few days time we'll do one for HalfEatenPie and MartinD as well. That'll get the staff out of the way. Then we'll go on to providers / individuals from the community who are doing things worth mentioning / talking about.

I ask myself the same question, but about Sajan. His voice is as smooth as his chocolate skin. /s

Is it hunger that makes food tasty or is it tasty food that makes you hungry?

On that subject where is he these days?

But just to keep this on topic also:

Which is the best hosting company you have worked for (excluding surmounted)

How old are you? What do you do for a living, do you have a day job?

Would you rather fight 100 duck sized horses or 1 horse sized duck?
Depending on weapons. Horses are big, so if I had a decent enough gun that'd be an easy thing to take down. But, if I had, say, a snow shovel or other blunt object. Or heavy boots. I'd imagine I could stomp out 100 duck sized horses relatively quickly and without effort too.

Is it hunger that makes food tasty or is it tasty food that makes you hungry?
Tasty food makes me hungry.

Probably out of the country on another of his 'trips'. Guy doesn't stay put long. I think when he was in Mexico a couple months back he got stranded there as his passport ran out of pages to stamp.

How did you get into the LEB/VPS community?
Pretty much when I started working for URPad. Prior I wasn't a huge fan of LET/LEB nor 'lowend' VPS companies. But then I got a job in the lowend industry and learned there are a lot of good folk in it.

Why is the sky blue?
I hope one day science can tell us. /s

No you fight with only bare hands and grappling

Do you have plans of having your own VPS company? With your experience and reputation, you can be successful.

Have you ever really been as far as decided to use even go?

More seriously - is there any field (IT or otherwise) that you would rather be in?

Ok here's a serious question: Why did you start vpsBoard?  What are your opinions of the sudden increase in members after the LEB/LET "drama"?  What are your future long-term goals for vpsBoard? 

Also, how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?

Not for anything outside my locale. I've had a 'project' I've been working on for years, though targeting local Indiana businesses. Would never start anything for the masses. You're all too damn picky and want to pay pennies for something a business would pay $$$ for :p But it'd be cPanel Shared hosting and Virtual Servers for Indiana businesses.

Yes. I miss working outside. I was the business manager of an organic orchard in Nevada for a little bit, but due to contract stuff and personal issues with the owner of the property returned to Indiana. Would rather be outside doing actual physical labor and real 'work' instead of sitting on my ass all day. But it is what it is. I get my bills paid, but I've grown soft.

Do you even lift?
Pizza off a plate and into my mouth? Yes.

I started vpsBoard because Steven_F from WHT PMed me and asked me if I wanted to buy the domain before he listed it publicly. I told him 'No' at first. But then someone on LET was selling an IPBoard license. I hit him up, and paid $20 (I think) for the domain a week later original contact and bought the IPB license to match.

Orginally didn't want to attract the LET/LEB crowd, to be honest. Everyone was welcome but I wanted to start a community that wasn't based around price limits. I'm not a super skilled tech, I just wanted a friendly and helpful community where I could learn new things as well. When LET/LEB was hacked and everyone flooded here, I didn't know what to think. Kept me busy trying to keep things online and in order for a few days until things calmed down. In the end though, it turned out okay. We've got some really helpful and informative people here as a result of it all, a few assholes too, but mostly friendly and helpful people ;)

EDIT: As far as long term plans for vpsBoard goes, we'll see. I've got some plans for some to implement soon. No real plans long-term yet, taking it a day/week at a time.

This isn't reddit so fuck off samefag.
Can you say that in form of a question?
