For those not in the loop, a number of months ago Antony was behind a false promise of 5 high-end dedicated servers which would, in effect, solve all our hardware-related problems. This promise continued, shifting the focus of 2 months of valuable time that could have been used to find a different solution that was at least decent to meet our needs.

The ploy was expertly executed, with ongoing relentless stories of the struggle to configure and set up the servers. I was even sent links to a WHM panel on 3 occasions, and initally shown a website which proved to be his (on a fast-loading server, I might add). A part of me was skeptical, another hoped for the best, and yet another was looking at all the evidence presented in his story. Still, I vowed not to let this slip until I knew it was true. As time went on however, and the server problems worsened, I had to give hope to my clients. I invited Antony to announce the server at one of our meetings.

Works at ESET… I wish!

One day he staged to be an older brother and informed me that his younger brother Antony was very good at coming up with creative stories such as this one. When I found a few holes in this new story, he came forth with what I believe may be the final truth. He had, in the beginning a dream to find these servers and offer them to us. He thought he could, but they were too expensive to afford in the end. He kept up the story hoping against hope he could finish it with a happy ending. But he couldn’t.

Most recently, I have just been informed there were attacks taking place against his server and verbal attacks through MSN. I would just like to request that these stop, since I don’t consider him an enemy nor advocate retaliation of this kind. Thanks everyone.

He keeps asking repeatedly how he can fix this, but there really isn’t much. He did offer us free SSL certificates a while ago, which I might consider. If you can think of anything better he can do, do let me know.

Well I don’t even know the guy, he sure sounds desperate. Maybe he could help us in someway. What is he good at?

I don’t understand why people would be attacking him or his server….really, what’s the point? That would be kind of like attacking my site: 1) nobody goes there, 2)…..oh wait…….

Please move on and leave the poor guy alone.

This is the first I’ve heard about this. I would be disappointed if I knew about this when it was promised but thats no reason to attack him in any way.
