    That shouldn't be my problem. Fucksake. There should be instructions on the brohoster site, or a form to fill in. This is like a shop closing down and a random homeless guy on the street saying I could to some random back alley and introduce myself to the owner, because he might help me.

    God, I figured that to a certain extent, this was all under control when Matt started not being a douche and actually running the company, but I guess things turned out worse in the end.

    So, uh, for the two or three of us that still had websites hosted through brohoster that ended up getting moved to clubuptime, does anyone have any suggestions for some good, fairly cheap hosting? I really hove no idea what's out there, and I'd trust something recommended by a fellow facepuncher than whoever pays google the most to show up at the top of the results.

    You guys should thank Amc that he is trying to help you. He was (just) a Staff of Brohoster, he normally wouldn't need to take care in any way.

    The entire staff of Brohoster hated every single little thing Matthew was doing, including this. They were trying to bring it back to where we had it back in the glory days - so don't any of you dare blame them for any issues you had at Brohoster. They put their blood sweat and tears into that company more than I ever did and they kept doing it until the last second.

    Why did you sell it then? I bet you knew before what kind of person Matt was. Of course you couldn't know it would end like this, but I mean when I have a bit of knowledge of humans, I know how they act or what they will do or how they will do it.

    You did it for fun (and money) and he probably did it because of the money. I'd blame it on you, 50%.

    he sold it because he was in monetary troubles and club uptime promised he would retain control of the company at least that's what i think happened

    Honestly, it seemed like Andrew was acting hostile towards him when he wasn't meaning to insult Andrew in the first place.

    He's obviously pissed about his lost service and wasn't aware of the full story. Being told to "fuck off" by one of the former employees wasn't helpful either.

    He was my friend. I never 'sold' it, we decided to start working together around December so I could bring lower-cost servers to my clients. We still had the smallest profit margins you'd ever see at a company, so it definitely wasn't about money. The $5000 that keeps getting quoted is referring to an amount that I got to keep in my bank accounts when he revoked my access to the finances and attempted (yes, there were two times) to fire me.

    I don't blame any of the staff that worked on my servers at all. Larry, Andrew, Tyler, Josh, they all put in work to make sure my server was running fine. Of course, the choice of TCAdmin caused it to not work a bunch of times but that's aside the point


    But I do blame Matt completely for everything that's gone on lately. At first, Matt didn't seem half bad. This is when Jake was fired. I mean, there were a few issues that were a problem, and even the people I mentioned will tell you that Jake had some problems. But of course, Matt derped everything he possibly could. After he tried to sell the company, I should have jumped ship. I only lose about 12 days at this point on 3 months so it's not half bad but I mean, still, it's pretty ridiculous at what Matt was doing and what he just did.


    I'm surprised there aren't some people outside his house. Then again, he probably sold it, ran away, changed his name and got some plastic surgery. Or perhaps Witness Protection Program, since he had the FBI involved last time.

    The main problem here IMO is that JWJ started it up before he was even a legal adult, and thus, gotten beaten to the whole "legal ownership" by Matt, as Matt was technically the legal founder of the company.

    Anyways best of luck with Lethaldrive, seeing as you don't have any Activision grade AAA++ assholes in any positions of power you will probably not have to worry about that shit happening again.

    Man this sucks, I used to use Brohoster before JWJ was fired and I can assure you that the staff excelled in what they did. I hope Lethal Drive goes well, but one question.
    Will I be able to upload my complete Brohoster server files into a Lethal Drive server and it all still work functionally?

    Brohoster went popular because they had important Facepunch people talking it up. No doubt that they were good, but their other good hosters as well. I love how some people in the crowd can control what stuff will be bought and which won't.

    Also, that Matt guy is linking to brohoster.com, which is down.

    I also want you all to know that I tried to release an emergency statement regarding the losses, but the fucking system that controls that was consumed in the losses as well.

    Jesus, it's like trying to tell everyone to escape the imminent grasp of a black hole, but you get sucked in in the process.

    Shit, even when I'm not working for Brohoster, I'm busy over shit about Brohoster. This thread man, this thread.
