Major Announcement Soon!

Recommended Posts

On March 15, 2006 we will be making a major annoucement.

 

I can not give any details at this point, only to say that this is something we have been working on for several months now.

 

We have inked the last page to be inked, we have agreed on the final pricing and we have commited to make this huge annoucement happen on 3/15/2006.

 

I am very confident everyone will be very pleased.

 

Stay tuned, its going to be awesome!

Yes Raul, That's what I do.

 

I am sorta of like Santa Clause.

 

You tell me what you want for x-mas and I say "OK I will see what I can do".

 

I remember every year when I was a young boy, telling him what I wanted and he told me the same line every time. He would see what he could do. I always thought, man its Santa. He can do whatever he likes. :)

You mean we don't get any clues?

 

I'd ask for a nice RAID backup drive, but you've already done that. How about some extra bandwidth?

 

I always have this problem at Christmas to, I never know what I want :)

Well true, we do now have RAID. Maybe we will all get more disk space for our sites. It's been a while since we had a space increase. More bandwidth would be nice too.

 

I've been harassing the staff since Bill posted there was going to be this major announcment on the 15th and I can't get anyone to tell me what it is. This must be something big if they are keeping it so quiet.

 

You would think that since I am lead moderator here they would tell me what they were planning. :P

I wouldn't be worried. Quite the contrary...I'm excited! The last time Bill did this we got something quite nice. So I would expect something that would benefit all of us!

It will certainly get answered on this one :whip: :D

 

Final stages of the project are being completed, so it's still on target for March 15th.

You might let everyone know what it is Bruce ;) Give me a call after wednesday (the next testing phase will be completed then), and I'll give you a preview....

No, thats not it.

 

But... :)

Thomas, do you know what the announcement is?

 

Has Thomas broken into the secret plans storage database somehow?

Yeah, I simply asked my teddy bear sitting next to me and he told me.

 

But, unfortunately...I cant tell you. Both Bill, Dick and Andy would slap me until I look like a Smurf if I told.

So... is it the 15th yet? :mellow:

Ok, I've done it... I cracked into the secret plans database! I think it was a honeypot though. At any rate, a short while later I got a message that informed me I've been infected with the "Amish Virus" and went on to explain that since Amish people don't use computers that this virus was based on an honor system, and politely asked me to delete all the files on my computer. I think this will take a while, so I'll be back later...

 

By the way: Don't try this at home... or work for that matter

Dick, I tried that but I forgot to put one of those $0.02 stamps on the envelope... DOH! So I had a nasty little surprise in my mailbox when I got home last night... Still interested in the cookies at least? :mellow:

Now, I am hurt. :)

 

But on the other hand I always wondered what those Quizno's are. :D

Well, I hope to be having dinner with HG while here in Florida tomorrow night. Maybe if I buy his dinner and ply him with adult beverages, I could get some kind of hint.

Head down to Schooners in the evenings, after a couple visits there you wont even care what day it is.

I haven't been down there in a couple of years but that was my favorite watering hole and I think they still fire off the cannon at sunset.

If it's server updates, I hope there isn't too much downtime. :P

Maybe the update will finally make the home page more accurate.

Every time I read this thread, which is several times per day, I check today's date to see if it's the 15th yet. So far, no luck.

 

What could it be? More disk space? More bandwidth? Another datacenter? Or is it something crazy like servers with PHP5 available? Or a dedicated server blowout? Or RAID5 for everyone? Or something less exciting, like Windows hosting?

 

Seriously, who puts their customers through this on purpose?

TCH already offers that. It's a special service plan called: "Don't pay your bill" (Maybe it should be called "Didn't pay Bill," meaning HeadGuru.) :lol:

My hope is more bandwidth. There are tons of other providers that offer tons more bandwidth for the same or less money. I love totalchoicehosting, that would be the only thing I'd like more of for sure. The rest is top notch....service has been awesome.

 

I only say this because my site is growing and I'm closing in on a gb of bandwidth a day...haha I need more for FREEE...please :)

Thanks for the cookies woody!

 

OK, here's the deal!

 

You can't eat it, drink it, or get the answer from me. It has nothing to do with Windows and there is no cannon involved. There is no extra cost to you and its most likely not a plan increase(or is it?). On the 15th we might tell you that the announcement has been delayed until April 1st. :)

I will tell you this, we do listen to what you want and this is just the first of many new things to come.

Is this supposed to be a clue? 'Cause it's not a very good one.

See Bruce, this is all your fault. Its been over 24 hours and my account still isn't set up (no phone call on my caller ID that I missed, either). Has TCH dropped the ball?! Oh my, the world will never know. Come on guys, don't let me down now, never have before!

You will need to open a ticket to get your answer, Bruce nor the rest of the mods can answer why. Have you checked all folders such as spam folders in your mail account that it would be sent to?

 

By the way, no spilling from me. I got in too much trouble last time.

Yes Bruce we are all excited. Like Tim on the Tarmac in Atlanta I don't want to miss the announcement. Bill and his crew here at "TCH" run a class act and am sure it will be worth the wait.
