    Had fun @Randy?

    I know, I'm Dale Maily.

  • This seems like the first mature move he made in all this time. I enjoyed reading through the whole drama, and can only hope he has gotten a bit of experience from that whole story...

    I guess this is probably the best ending for Hosting Squad and hopefully @Randy will be able to learn from this lesson

  • Looks like he found out the price of legit Windows?

    When you find that perfect VPS, KEEP IT.

    Spot on. I don't think you can get Windows licenses for less then $1 a month.

    Why would you be? Your story ended before it even began.

    I mean, at least he got this far.

  • Guys lets give Randy some credit.

    He's done the right thing and by the sounds of it he's also ensured all the customers have had refunds.

    No harm done!

  • @httpzoom said: No harm done!

    Because no one is dumb enough to use a $1-4 Windows VPS as a production server.

    When you find that perfect VPS, KEEP IT.

  • Zetta, even if they were from reading the email sent out they'll receive refund for the un used time!

    I have got some free Windows licenses from MSDNAA and Dreampark.

    @tux Those are non-commercial educational licenses.

  • TazTaz Disabled

    Most likely windows license is the culprit here.

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

    @tux said: I have got some free Windows licenses from MSDNAA and Dreampark.

    Educational purposes only.

  • One can argue or at least hope that Randy's use was educational. At least hope he learned some valuable lessons and will do better next summer.

  • At least, he's always nice and refunded me. Although I don't asked to be refunded. Whatever, he will still be my friend :)

    @Damian Just ask his customer. Pretty sure he posts here.

  • InfinityInfinity Retired Staff

    Not many, I think just about half a page in WHMCS if I remember correctly. Half were LET'ers.

    No, I was going to work for Randy, I started off but backed out.

  • I backed out from purchasing from Randy after following the Randy saga. Lucky. We decided to delay our Windows based projects partly due to the costs involved.

    Easy to do when you're using warez'd keys, I guess.

    I'm glad to see Randy's realised this isn't the business for him, at least not at the moment. He never seemed like a bad guy, just not a bright guy either.

    @Gary said: Easy to do when you're using warez'd keys, I guess.

    How so?

    LSN for a 8GB node is $190 without IPs....

  • GaryGary Member

    Ok, easier then.

    Hopefully MS doesn't now come after him for using dodgy keys...
