In all seriousness, Octave has done well - although I never heard of OVH until someone recommended them to me (and I've never regret the change) - he was just a nobody, like most of us are/were/etc, then I guess worked his butt off to get were he is now, with a few (thousand) Francs.

I guess we all could follow in his footsteps one day, although I'm near the wrong side of 40! (boo hoo), if we put our mind to it.

Reaks of template to me personally, no SEO, couple of pages look a bit wonky (at least in Chrome), and the forum skin is pretty plain and not following the design of the site.

I own a web design / management company in case your interested in something a little more unique!

Yes Marc, was thought it would be more beneficial to wrap the Forums and whmcs into the actual site itself, rather than having them as separate, dull looking pages - currently being sorted as we speak - should be perfect by tommorow, as we have another few 'tweaks' that need to be completed as well.

Although thank you very much for your positive feedback, coming from someone I have spent a whole lot of time dealing with, and helping me with issues, I without a doubt respect your opinion, so it's it's very much appreciated.. Just a shame about the situation we find ourselves in just now, although no fault of your own, I know if it were up to you it would be resolved by now

There is no need to lower the tone! The twelve forum posts that you have amassed must make you a good judge of character.
But he might be playing tricks I for example have racked up a total of 1168 forum posts (but not all under the same username). Time has passed just so quickly

Well, it's just a registered office address you can use when you register your company (www.companyformations247.co.uk - silver pack) and any official mail sent there gets forwarded to your chosen address - Nothing special.

As much as I don't mind my home address being linked to the business, if I have the option to do such a thing so it isn't, I will - I'm sure anyone of you would do the same.

As I said earlier, I'm not here to argue with anyone. You can troll my threads all you like, but if that's how you fill your day, I stand by hug statement

Yes, there's a chance he's young. He's an active member of this forum, obviously very passionate about technology and what he's doing, and has built and is running a fairly successful small business - and I'll have to keep an eye on him when I launch . Surely that's worthy of some respect.

There was really no call for the tone you seem to be using.

Now, I'm not stupid, I know it's simplistic, and isn't exactly pretty - we could have just bought a template like everyone else seems to do, but at least it was made from scratch - as I said, I never professed to be a scripter, and I tried my best but thanks for putting my efforts down when all I did was try show you another side to the owner of OVH.

Regardless of what's happened, nice to know there is some people on here not on a personal vendetta, like Andy, Myatu, freshwire, Razakel, etc (sorry for anyone else I may have missed out).. I respect you guys, as you treat other members with the same respect you expect yourselves.

Several questions asked by Oles/Octave in 99/00
