    Not even boxing. Give them half an hour podcast every week. I'd always tune in.

    hm. I've lost a machine.. literally lost. it responds to ping, it works completely, I just can't figure out where in my apartment it is.

    (a) I'm too ugly for TV (or pretty much anything involving images).
    (b) I would have much better things to offer than a boxing match

    You might be surprised but actually I'm not at all interested in winning any kind of match, boxing or discussion, no matter. I just abhor propaganda, lies, and bloody BS.
    Being at that I wish to note that I do not think that @TimboJones is somehow evil; he just happens to trust too much in "authoritative" sources and checks/challenges too little. But I'm quite confident that he really believes what he says and has no ill will. I think we both detest BS and want the truth, each from his own position.

    Have a nice weekend everyone.

    Agreed, these 2 would create a great weekly debate show.

    Assuming it's your voice @raindog308, well done on the narration. A Walter Cronkite like older authority exuding voice.

    Subscribed in hopes of drama.

    True. Weekly debates between jsg and Timbojones would be awesome. This would be great as a weekly show, precisely because of polemics involved.

    Nice initiative

    Suggestion
    @yoursunny should make video tutorials. His content is really easy to understand.

  • jbilohjbiloh Administrator

    Love the YouTube channel concept. Nice one @raindog308

    As for guest pod casts... that's a good idea!

    Nice; looking forward to some interviews maybe!

    Is it me, but does anyone dislike video tutorials as much as I do? I much prefer words and pictures :(

    For me it depends on the nature of the tutorial. Sometimes video is better and sometimes not.

    It depends. Sometimes with written tutorials you can skip forward more easily, or jump to what you need. But if it's something new, a verbal discussion is helpful...and sometimes I listen to technical stuff while I'm doing chores, etc. to maximize my time.

    Written tutorials aren't going anywhere but there are people who like video, so we'll be doing both...the real goal of the channel is to draw more people to LEB/LET who maybe have never heard of our sites, so this is a good way to attract an audience.

    I actually made a checklist of all the completely free things we're willing to do for companies. @dustinc is very good about taking advantage of every opportunity to promote his brand (as he should be). It's disappointing many other companies are not as serious.

    @raindog308 good video with @Francisco BuyVM service. Although you have some issues with the video.
    From 10:00 to 10:43 there is 2 voices speaking at once.
    You blurred out your IP and Name on beginning of video. Second half not blurred
    It appears your ending is missing and restarting the video.

    I truly believe all providers should invest in their brand, marketing is so important. LEB/LET are great resources available to every single provider. You guys do such an amazing job with pushing content and helping others too. Love it. Keep up the grind.

    It's definitely impressive how @dustinc has marketed RackNerd here on LET. Above all else, I'm very impressed by how well he's able to maintain professionalism when people are publicly trying to push his buttons.

    I think a lot of the providers here could learn a lot from Dustin, particularly the new ones or those who feel that Dustin is "stealing" their customers with his promos..

    No one has bought LET or LET.

    @raindog308 just noticed that the LEB channel is not paying attention to the comment section of the posted video. I would suggest shifting some focus to replying to the subscribers comments or close the comment section and receive the comments in the LEB video post.

    Is there any difference? The DNS record is slightly different (AAAA record vs A record) and you have to setup the ipv6 address on the VPS but otherwise everything is exactly the same, unless I'm missing something in your question.
