LowEndBox is Taking a Break for 2 Weeks

Date/Time: December 7, 2010 @ 12:28 am, by LowEndAdmin

Here is just an announcement that I will be taking a break for the next 2 weeks. I will be on holidays with family somewhere in South East Asia (leaving tomorrow), and will be back just before Christmas. That means

  • There won’t be any posting on this blog within the next two weeks. But feel free to discuss about your low end box issues with others in the community at LowEndTalk.com.
  • That also means if you are a provider and are thinking of sending me your offers, they probably won’t be posted until a few days before Christmas. Feel free to send them to be regardless (email: contact <at> this.domain), but you might need to make sure that the promo lasts until Christmas.
  • I won’t be able to approve new comments (for those who have not commented here before).

So guys, please keep it civil when you post your comments here on LowEndBox :) There might be Internet access there if I can get onto a free WiFi with my phone, but I think I probably should not set my hope too high.

And an early Merry Christmas to everyone :)

The original owner of LowEndBox known as "LowEndAdmin" or "LEA" for short founded LowEndBox in 2008 and created the concept of hosting applications on low resource "Low End Boxes". After creating the roots of the community that we know today, "LEA" stepped aside and allowed others to carry the torch forward.

  3. Hope you’re enjoying your holiday.

    And if you have time, maybe you should come to Indonesia :D
    Many 3 stars Hotels will give you free internet access. Or you might use your phone as a modem here, as I always did. LOL

    • That’s what we get when we are using Google Translator.
      But as many people know, Google Translator is just tools.
      Many-many fault in some translation.
      I suggest you’re not using it on a language that you’re not fully know.
      “Specially for Indonesian”

    • Actually it is not really SE Asia. More like Far East with bias towards south :)

      My family will be going to Taiwan for 2 weeks. Wife + kids will then go to Hong Kong for Disney, while I go back home toiling in front of computers…

  31. Gorgan,

    We get stock in small batches. Just last month we had 40GB of RAM for sale.
    We colocate all of our gear so it takes time, and a lot of money, to get stock for sale.

    We also own BuyVM.net, which, at times, runs into the same out of stock issues ;)
