[quote=http://clubuptime.com/] 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 [url]http://www.brohoster.com[/url] for applicable instructions. We've appreciated your business. Thank you. -Management [/quote] Is this for real? Can someone explain this to me? I'm fucking irate. This is so goddamn ridiculous.

This is bullshit. Why so damn sudden? I got up this morning to find this!? I was playing on my server just before bed.. Now I have to wait to get my world otherwise we're going to have to lose a LOT of progress. Thanks Brohoster, you screwed me like a ho.

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: [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1097710-Brohoster-Proving-their-Excellent-Services-Yet-Again?highlight=brohoster[/url] It's a long read but it gets pretty interesting.
Just order from [url]www.lethaldrive.com[/url] now. Its JWJ's new company.
Roll on LethalDrive
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.

With growing costs and a[B] substantial number of nonpaying clients[/B], we have been unable to continue our business with SoftLayer. Ahahahahaha, thats the result you get for screwing over JWJ.
Unfortunately the servers aren't down though.

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 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. :/

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.

I mean I dont like anime but I dont go around calling anime fans weeaboos. But whatever this is getting offtopic.
