    CU Family,

    We regret to announce that Club Uptime, LLC will be closing its doors,
    effective immediately.

    With growing costs and a substantial number of nonpaying clients, we
    have been unable to continue our business with SoftLayer.


    As a result, we will no longer be accepting new signups or renewals
    for our products or services.


    We will update this page when backups are able to be made available to clients as we have them transferring to external backup servers right now.



    Refunds will be issued to all customers who have already paid their
    invoice for the current month, and will be prorated if paid quarterly,
    semi-annually or annually .
    Please be patient as this process may take up to 4-6 weeks to complete.

    BroHoster Customers please refer to http://www.brohoster.com for
    applicable instructions.

    We've appreciated your business. Thank you.

    -Management
    Is this for real? Can someone explain this to me? I'm fucking irate. This is so goddamn ridiculous.

    Matt bought brohoster months ago and ran it into the ground
    It survived for long though because of the people he hired

    Well you all missed the thread in Hardware and Software, but basically JWJ got kicked out of Brohoster even though he co-created it, and the other guy was a massive douchebag and fired people and sold the company.

    As Tobba mentioned above it was Matt that fucked everything up.

    Here's the thread where it all went down:

    It's a long read but it gets pretty interesting.

    It's worth mentioning that Matt also tried to get FP shut down because of the thread with like 50 pages of people calling him a dick.

    It's not a mail. But a letter on ClupUptime's website.
    http://clubuptime.com/
    (ClubUptime is the same people as Brohoster, or something along those lines)

    With growing costs and a substantial number of nonpaying clients, we
    have been unable to continue our business with SoftLayer.

    Uhh, JWJ was the sole founder of BroHoster. Nobody else was involved with the actual creation of the company, just the running and shit. Matt had fuck all to do with it and only came on board after JWJ agreed to have him help with something for some reason.

    I actually got the message in an email, and I had stopped paying just days before because I wanted to switch to LethalDrive when it was released. I feel partially responsible, and it's awesome because, y'know, burn that shit to the ground wot, and at the same time I feel bad because the few awesome people they had working there lost their jobs. :/

    Everyone from the original Brohoster is going to be with LethalDrive I think, read that somewhere around the "Brohoster is Gone" thread.

    Basically JWJ started up Brohoster but gave Matt ownership of the company as he was able to get large discounts on SoftLayer. Then Matt fired JWJ after basically saying that he wasn't working hard enough (bullshit) and that is what led up to this.

    There is if it's fucked up. No one can deny that.

    I wonder what Matt is thinking right now, though? I think he got a lot of money out of it, didn't he?

    No theres not, you dont need to go out of your way to insult people and stereotype all people that like something just because you dont like it. I mean I dont like anime but I dont go around calling anime fans weeaboos. But whatever this is getting offtopic.

    I think having the username "Teh Kitteh" is just as bad as using ANY text smiley face.
