    I'm guessing this is a British term?  :p

    Probably. It's more polite than 'fuck all'

    Hi Martin, yust found this thread.. you may not know me personally but I have been using Minivps or what used to be minivps for the last year or so now. 

    First I just gotta say, it's abit sad that you've sold the company, but I do appreciate the fact that family does come first.

    I must say the customer support over at Astutium is pretty horrible compared to what I was looking for and what your team at minivps offered. Prices been increased, servers going down with no warning or no explanation after they're back up, lack of social media presence, just pretty horrible customer service from what i'm used to. 

    Just wanted to post this here as I found this thread when searching for their website before I plan to cancel my subscription and move away.

    Hi Michaeli. 

    I'm both happy and sad to read this. Over the past few months I've had quite a lot of messages and emails from my (ex) customers saying similar to yourself. It's nice to hear that while I was at the helm, people were happy with the overall service provided. It's sad to see people are now jumping ship because things are going downhill. Not that I blame them at all; some of the stories I've heard really have shocked me. 

    Ultimately, I know it's not my fault that these things are happening but it does make me feel somewhat guilty. Having built the business from scratch and now seeing it rot from the inside is a bit soul destroying. I guess all I can say is sorry things haven't worked out as I'd hoped and you've been put in such a position. 

    Not really sure what else to say :/
