Subject: Fwd: Blue Room Hosting is shutting down


The sole hosting provider that I'm aware of that offered Owl based VPS 
hosting is closing, as outlined below.

So, anyone got any recommendations for a replacement service that can 
offer KVM hosting with the ability to run Openwall GNU/*/Linux ? ;-)

We would like to inform you that we have decided to shut down our
hosting operations. This was not any easy decision to make, but after
two and a half years we have simply failed to achieve the scale
necessary to be profitable.

We would also like to thank all our customers, who have helped us
develop a hosting service we are proud of, and wish to make the
migration to other service providers an easy one. To that end we will
be suspending further invoices and contract renewals, while at the same
time running a full service for the next month and a limited service
after that until our rack space contract expires.

The important dates are as follows:

=== 1st of September ===

We will not be accepting contract renewals from this date onwards, and
will not be issuing any further invoices. All PayPal subscriptions
will be cancelled. The SLA refunds for August will be processed as
normal, which will be a 100% refund for most customers because of the
two network outages.

=== Throughout September ===

We will be issuing any appropriate SLA refunds and returning
outstanding balances on accounts as contracts expire.

=== 1st of October ===

All contracts will have expired, but we will continue to run all VPSs on
a best effort basis. We will not be offering 24/7 support after this
date, and will not be making any guarantees as to support availability,
but we will do our best to deal with any problems and to respond to any

=== 1st of November ===

All VPSs will be shut down, as we will then have to move our servers
out of the data centre before our contract expires.

Please accept our sincere apologies for this inconvenience. It is
truly regrettable that we have arrived at this point, but we are
unable to continue in this market at this time.

We wish you all the best for the future,

The Blue Room Hosting Team
