    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

    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.

    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!

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

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

    @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!

  • 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.

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

    MagicSpam blackmails providers into buying their software, and ServerHub is a professional spam organization.

    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.

    @Zen said: I didn't realize he charged 1$/month

    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.

  • GaryGary Member

    Ok, easier then.

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

  • TazTaz Disabled

    Bah, LSN is too expensive. I can do e3-1270 4x1TB hd with 32gb ram and /27 +HW raid for.under 250< and that is from one if the premium DC.

  • RandyRandy Disabled

    I dont care what. You guys think about me. so just shutup and move on.

    All refunfs has ben completed.
    Remember neo's first deadpoool? i am sure none have even gotten a refund.

    LSN is a good provider.

    I wont visit LET anymore.

    I will be back someday and it wont be a deadpool

  • @Randy said: I will be back someday

    ...after the next school year ends.

  • neo was in the deadpoool? When?

  • Note that I never ran BH, @Randy. I only had the domain and it was run by a different guy.

  • LAKidLAKid Member
    edited August 2012

    @Boltersdriveer so according to @Randy you deadpooled BH and opened Loomhosts.
    but you are claiming you owned the domain and let others use it?
    this is getting funnier..

  • @LAKid: Not really, the domain belonged to me, services were offered by another person who eventually deadpooled it and started SleekHosts (which also deadpooled, I believe). Some members of the community may be familiar with the guy, @Infinity, for instance.
