Another one bite the dusts

For my more loyal readers, you are likely aware that in the year 2008 I wrote an article called “Reasons why you shouldn’t use a free forum host” which outlined a few problems with using a free forum host. While it was not my best written work (is any ?) it did explain that if you was to use a free forum host then make sure to keep backups if you can.

A few days ago I learnt that IPBFree went off-line suddenly and so many forum administrators have now finally lost their forums and likely had no backups what so ever. Searching around, all I can see about what happened was that IPBFree was taken off-line relating to DMCA matters which does not surprise me as IPBFree was a forum service filled with warez forums.

BurstNET – My Review

Cjb, Fasthost, The Hosting, Shacow, The Planet, Galaxy Solutions, Saidcom, Gretzkyhosting, FDCServers, DME Hosting and now BurstNET has joined the list of past web hosts / data centers that I have used over the years of Tweaked for your Pleasure life and this time I am going to write a little review on BurstNET.

Overall I would have to say my experience was good but there was some hipcups with their service but for the price they charge I don’t actually expect much else. So, for the review…

Support

I will start of that with BurstNET support seems to be quite varied. Overall BurstNET would tend to reply within 1 – 4 hours but there have been times when posting on Web Hosting Talk actually got them to reply faster then they normally would. Maybe it is because BurstNET representative on there and jumping your tickets up but I do not know why.

Anti-everything bastards

What is wrong with this world. It seems that everyday there is always someone bitching about getting rid of something just because it is slightly different to their views of it. While the United Kingdom is not the same as the United States in which you can just sue someone because they looked at you but over here, we just have people bitching.

Do not get me wrong as there are some worthy things to debate against such as lowering fees on PayPal donations but come on, do you really need to setup a anti group just because you tripped on the road and hurt yourself because you was drunk and just do not want to look like a loser so you go blaming everything else ?

Well of course you are not going to admit you just suck so you start a group (very often on Facebook with the name like this: IM AGANEST NOT PANETNG AL TEH ROADS PINK AS IT DOES NOT LOK CUTE!!11111! WTF LOL). After some time, the group will gain a lot of members whom does not actually give a fuck but rather just joining it as they have nothing better to be doing with their time at it is at this time, the creator of that group will create a website.

Thing is though, when will people learn that no one actually gives a shit about your anti-whatever group and even more so if it is a Facebook group. Really, no one actually gives a shit that you think that something should be stopped. If you actually want to change something, actually go out there and lobby someone arse until the people that can make a differences actually gives a shit. Do not just go on Facebook and expect the world to jump on.

Umm, makes me wonder. Is this article an anti-anti people or a Facebook rant. Well, we will never know or care. Speaking of which, I got an idea. Let’s start an anti-anti people group to say to those people whom creates anti-groups because of whatever they fucked up on and do not want to look bad that we do not actually give a shit. Just do not do it on Facebook though or any other social network sites.

Man, I do hate social networking at times.
