    Anyone have NY BuyVM?

    I know this is a long shot, but I'd really like to get my hands on one of BuyVM's 128MB OpenVZ boxes in New York. If anyone has one, I'd love to buy it from them/trade. I have several other nice boxes available, ask me if there's anything specific you'd like. For instance, the IPXCore 96MB box I mentioned.

      If you don't get any offers in the meantime, I might have one available at the weekend.

      Thanks @Nekki, I'll PM you sometime this weekend if nothing comes up.

    • Your IPXcore 96mb plan can be upgraded to the 128mb plan.

    • Yes, but it doesn't have IPv6.

      I hear Aldryic doesn't like me. I hear he's allergic to pies. I base this accusation under no data whatsoever.

      You can ticket and see if Aldryic has something spare :)

      I'll talk with him in the morning about adding some 128's since a few people want them.

      @DStrout that would of been BZ, Aldryic usually gives a personalised message.

    • Answer says it's from "Anthony".

      When ticketing, you can say you want to direct to specific person. e.g. Aldryic of boss fran

      That'd be BZ.

      He does write personalized messages when possible but some stuff is boiler plate replies.

      @francisco I don't like bz answers, he's so mean :( why don't aldryc or you answers all the tickets, and let him just rest in his house?

      Ah he's not that mean. He's calmed down a lot and I expect him to calm down even more once the brocade is installed.

      His rage level is directly attached to the amount of tickets in his queue.

      LOL at this
      Can you publish some graphs to catch him at the smallest queue of the day? LOL

      @yomero said: Can you publish some graphs to catch him at the smallest queue of the day? LOL

      Nah his every day queue is pretty small.

      The problem is that he has a page or three of outstanding tickets from people asking when the brocade is getting installed. He left them all as pending/'on hold' so he can personally go back and update everyone.

      I've been trying to plan a smaller outage (think < 30 seconds) but it's looking more like it'll be closer to 5 minutes due to some configuration changes Rob wants to do.

      We'll see. Once I know for sure I'll book the time.

      I love Anthony's ticket replies. I guess they could drive away some people at times, but I find them to be funny ;)

      I'm using an IPXCore KVM in Buffalo with tunneled IPv6 from HE.net in NYC for now. I'd still prefer a BuyVM box, though. Unfortunately, I realized I'm not eligible to receive a transfer from someone else, only having been a client for a month or so :( If it weren't for the fact that they're the only provider with native IPv6 and LEB prices in the area, I wouldn't want one, to be honest. Take this however you want, but BuyVM has always felt somewhat snobbish to me. Like, "we know everyone wants our stuff, so we're going to make a bunch of rules to make ourselves feel even more exclusive". Same way I perceive Apple, but that's another story.

      High volume business at low cost is done by low overhead, requiring consistent and blanket policies. Alternative is 100% personalized service and policies applied only as they feel necessary, combined with either higher prices or significantly slower support. This option, however, is only theirs to choose and they have chosen their current strategy.

      ...Which is why I'll go with the small(er) providers whenever possible.

      Don't tell me I just missed new stock! I checked DoesBuyVMHaveStock and stock is available on the 512MB and up OpenVZ plans. Either all the 128MB plans have been snagged or there weren't any. Either way, arghhh!!!! I do have the IPXCore and I got one of Reliable Hosting's 512MB plans in Baltimore, but neither is ideal. How did I miss this?

      Yeah, I asked about some policies and I got that vibe :P

      That makes sense but you have to find a reasonable middleground :P

      There was a couple.

      We aren't trying to be snobby, sorry. Alas, because we get a lot of people wanting to signup, abuse can also be a really big issue (usually spam or skiddies wanting protection for their booters).

      Aldryic has to lay down the law to keep things in order. If you provide correct details (or you provide proof that your completely wacky details are 100% accurate), then your order will get through without much issue.

      Given the size of our company, we literally get a couple spam complaints a month and that's entirely because Aldryic's policies keep things clean.

      He's always improving them and seeing how he can make things more painless for the user. At this point you have to be giving some pretty terrible details to get flagged, like:

      Street: China
      City: China
      Province: China
      Country: China

      Yes, this happens more than I'd care to count.

      Yeah, I was told that no matter what the paypal name must match the account name. That saddens me as I do use a shared paypal due to the fact I don't have a CC.

      You could ask the person to sign up if you are still after service.

      I may look into it soon. (Your 128M yearly KVM looks very interesting)
