It's Birthday Week at VPS.NET
Inside every older person is a younger person – wondering what the hell happened.
– Cora Harvey Armstrong
There are certain days bartenders look forward to. New Years Eve probably tops the list, followed closely by the Friday after Thanksgiving (At least in the USA) but there’s one day that you may not know about. June 3rd; The day of my (Terry!) birthday and the Eve of Nick’s birthday. What typically starts out as a fun get away from the office, always turns into an expensive mess. While I at least get to enjoy the benefit of a lower insurance bill thanks to turning 25, Nick doesn’t have it so good. He just got older. Granted, he’s only 364 days older than me, he’s still older and that much slower than me on the basketball court. Both of us however have survived, and thrived, and I’m pretty certain thanks to some enhanced creativity levels, come up with new ideas for VPS.NET! How many of these ideas we actually remember and then decide to be a good idea can certainly be questioned.
Recognize this little guy? We’ve ordered (I believe) 5,000 of the VPS.NET mascot stress balls. If you want one, the most fun way would be to meet up with us at HostingCon. For those of you who unfortunately won’t be able to attend, we’re cooking up a way to win one. Probably will involve some sort of fun contest, but it’s totally worth it right?
An update on the “Meet the Staff” blog post: we’re still looking for some more votes. So far Kody is winning. Based off what I know about Kody, it’d definitely be a fun and interesting interview, but lets see if we can get a few more votes. Give him a little competition!
We’ve released a new Cloud Linux template, with the release of 5.5 x64. All the versions you’re used to (Basic, Apache only, MySQL only, LAMP, LAMP w/ cPanel & ISP Manager) are all there. Go check it out; a lot of users are making the migration from CentOS to Cloud Linux, so it’s definitely become a fan favorite here at VPS.NET.
That’s all I have for you this week. Definitely keep in touch with us through the VPS.NET Twitter. We enjoy hearing from you, so don’t be shy!
