Here's to you Scott

Hey Scott,

I've been following the Addon Policy Change thread in the forum (up to page 39 now...) and notwithstanding the trolls and crapartists that feel the need to stir up mod authors and their supporters, I am 100% behind you and hope that you will continue to refine and polish nUI for a long time to come. As always, I appreciate your time, effort and willingness to not only develop nUI but also be as involved in the forum here as you are.

By the way... what the #*@!@$* are you doing here reading this post huh? Get back to the other forum!

~lol~

Nah... I've pretty much moved on from the debate... better things to do. I think pretty much all of the points that can be made have been made. Now it's up to Bliz.

And on that note:

It might not be much but I am already paying for a domain name and am currently using it for my guild website and my own personal hobbies. I will gladly get a subdomain set up you can use for nUI usage if you ever need to.

In the mean time I will post up nUI images and links to your website for my fellow guildies to peruse. Although I know one of my guildies had to drop your addon as it hogged his system too much but he did love it.

Ouch, time to get a new pc. Until recently i was playing wow on a 5yr old dell with nui and about 40 other addons loaded. If he is having that much trouble with nUI installed he needs a new pc hehe.

OKay... I am *really* confused.

There's like this whole conversation about something that happened to someone and me needing a host for my web site and I have *no* clue what any of it is about?

Is there a message that got deleted or I'm not seeing or something?

Thank you Scott for continuing development on nUI. You good sir are quite the gentleman.

OKay... I am *really* confused.

I think people are just saying they'd lend a hand with hosting if you needed. One can never have too much hosting?

I appreciate that.

Right now I'm hosted at yourpowerhost.com and it's still paid for about 16 more months, so I'm in pretty should shape for a while. But I may look to mirror at some point. I'll keep you in mind, and thank you.

Just a reminder here guys. Other than one specific file, he doesn't actually have to pay a cent for hosting. We happily give him everything he needs right here. He and I already talked about it and the only reason why he's still running his own site is because he already had it in place previously and there was still time left on the contract.

I've had hosting there since 2004 or maybe it was earlier than that.

Go look up "K Scott Piel" "MarketBeasts.com" and "Emax" on Google.

http://www.globenewswire.com/newsroom/news.html?d=52335

They ended up bankrupting the business, defaulting on the purchase and leaving me holding the bag. The servers at yourpowerhost.com is all I have left.

What I meant was, if I had known you before you got that, I could of told you that you could own a site just like that. The servers themselves belong to GoDaddy/Wild West Domains. Essentially, if you went to GoDaddy to be a reseller of domain names and hosting, you would pay 99 bucks a year and get that very same site identical to yourpowerhost.com... and you could sell your own hosting and sell domain names which would essentially make your own personal sites free. That number you see at the very top of their site, if you call it you will be speaking to Wild West Domains.. sister company to GoDaddy.

But, if you own that site then you can ignore my post cuz you know all that anyways lol.

Nah... I don't own it. I'm one of the sheep... but it was all pre-paid years ago.

I wouldn't necessarily call Wild West Domains (WWD) a sister company they are GoDaddy. If you call the tech support for WWD (or even the tech support number on a hosting site that uses WWD) you'll get GoDaddy's tech support. The exact same people that answer GoDaddy's tech support number. If you've ever called them have you ever noticed that they don't answer with "Thank you for calling GoDaddy, WWD, etc"? They're not supposed to reveal that it's the same company. If they did it causes a lot of confusion for the customer.

lol ... unless godaddy started outsourcing after I left them a little over a year ago I can assure you that their customer support is all in house and based in the US.

Perhaps "sister company" isn't the proper word. Wild West Domains is the name used for their resellers. Legally, Wild West Domains is a separate registrar apart from GoDady, even though it's owned by the same company. I pay Wild West Domains every year, and the checks I get from them are from Wild West Domains... not GoDaddy.

The reason they do not answer the phone using a "name" is because they're a reseller. Wouldn't look good to my hosting clients to call that number regarding their domain name account and have them answer with a different name than my company name lol. (I don't use them for hosting purposes. Only for selling domains.)
