HostUS recently had another strong showing on the Top Providers Poll at LowEndTalk, making it in the top 5. With 100’s of companies that have a presence at LET this is very impressive. Because of the recent poll I decided to share some quick information on my HostUS VPS service. I love my HostUS box. It’s reliable and it performs great. Uptime is currently at 131 days and it’s still chugging along. For $15 US […]

August 10, 2015 Nerd 3

Update: May 26, 2017 A few months ago the Phoenix Internet company upgraded their available bandwidth to their towers and started upgrading customers equipment.

Ten years of World of Warcraft and what a journey it's been. My Paladin has conquered Ragnaros, Nefarian, Magtheridon, Kel'Thuzad, Onyxia and numerous other baddies. When he wasn't busy destroying Gruul the Dragonkiller he could be found on the battle ground leading the Alliance in the fight against the Horde. Paladin raiding – Back then the raid teams were 40 players. The blessings only lasted 5 minutes and the buffs weren't raid wide which meant […]

T-Mobile – Great Service, Terrible Support

July 19, 2015 Nerd 0

Outstanding product, terrible support. I thought my question was an easy one. Does the MF61 support LTE? Don't ask T-mobile because they don't know. – My home internet went down last weekend so I activated my pre-paid data hotspot. The speeds were less than expected. It's been almost a year since I used the hotspot last and I'm still getting the same 7Mb down regardless of the LTE expansion that has taken place in my […]

I often had to use the "Forgot Password" link which would either lead to the new password being emailed to another service or me having to deal with security codes sent to my mobile device via a text. Like a good net citizen I use different login credentials for every website […]
