mrVM - The short (long) story behind the lack of visits to LES and the future......
Dear Users of LowendSpirit!
Some of you know who I am, some don't.
As the owner of mrVM, I have been here since the dawn of LES as a Provider but lately haven't had the time to be as active as I used to be.
About a year ago, probably longer, I announced that I was about to pass the ownership over to another Provider here on LES.
At that time, the Provider was never revealed and the shift came to a complete stop due to my lack of time, and for that I can only apologize.
The history behind this is that I left my employment to become my own consultant in IT-services 30 months ago.
Eager to get everything running and inexperienced as a newcomer on the playing field, I accepted (almost) every job opportunity that I came across which pretty soon bit me right in the bee-hind.
At this point I worked 60+ hours a week with my new company, on top of that, I have three active kids and mrVM was the part of my life that I had to neglect.
Earlier this week I reached out to the Provider I had talked with and asked if he was still interested and he was.
With this post, a new try has begun to make a proper takeover this time.
Guess it's time to reveal the new Provider and I'm sure all, or most of you know of him.
@SGraf, welcome up on stage and take a bow.
I choose @SGraf among other interested Providers due to his experience in the hosting business and successful saves of other Providers.
Today marks the day when @SGraf gets access to WHMCS data and the work to inventory all nodes and current status.
As part of the agreement between us, the current number of nodes and locations will be intact.
A new client panel will be installed and ONLY customers who want to stay, will be migrated over.
I will let @SGraf present a crude time plan as I will let him take the lead and dictate the migration speed.
With this (short) post, I will open the comments for a quick AMA....... and I will do my best to answer every question.
Here in Sweden, it's almost bedtime, so I might be AFK and not answer any questions for some time.... until the kids sleep.
