Is HostSolutions Down for the Count?

hostsolutionsOn LowEndTalk, there has been a great deal of discussion about the fate of HostSolutions:

In a nutshell, HostSolutions suffered some sort of massive disk array failure which wiped out service to 3,000 users.  You can read the history in those threads, or in these alternate forms:

There has also been talk of a movie being made about it.  We also previously interviewed Marius, HostSolutions’ owner.

Updates have been scarce but there have been various developments since our last update:

So HostSolutions, what’s going on?  The community is very disappointed at the poor way in which this has been handled, where a provider suddenly goes silent and now appears to be going out of business, owing a good deal of services unrendered to our readership.

We urge Marius to give folks an update, either here, on LowEndTalk, or your own announcements page.

    I will never trust a Roman (gypsy) again after that.
    Especially, when he tried to bill for VM way ahead of time, instead of 3 months period it started to bill every week.

      WTF does it have to do with $subject? “ro” is TLD for Romania, where majority of people are Romanians (descendants of Thracians/Dacians etc). Gypsies are “Romani”, and they consitutute just about ~3% of population in Romania). And Romans (singl. Roman) were people of the ancient Rome.

        Yeh, I meant Romanians, not Romans.
