    I can’t help but note that $6/mo – 20% is $4.80, not $4.90….

    It’s not realy a significant mistake, but attention to detail can
    often tell you how well run a company is…

    3 Weeks in and my VPS is still up and running good. Everything is very good and the only problems I have experienced are short network burps, there has not been many though. (they affected the whole datacenter.)

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
