Just a quick little introduction. I've been running forums for around 13 years now, helping others with their forum configurations/install and running my own forum. Started out back in 2002 with vBulletin. Last year I saw the light and jumped ship to Xenforo. I've been running Xenforo around 6 months now and am absolutely loving it. Along with having lots of forum knowledge I also work in the IT field. For my forum I have always used shared hosting and have been using URLJet for many years now. While I have had no issue's with their service and am grandfathered in to very cheap rates I love to tinker. I know the basic's of sys admin work but want to learn more and this is where my idea has come to eventually leave URLJet for Linode. I signed up with a 1024mb Linode plan today and obviously plan to install and use CentminMod. I have a lot of learning ahead of me and have been reading through this forum for many weeks and decided it's finally time to get my feet wet.
