We’re excited to announce that Danny Ariti has joined the Linode team as a Customer Support Liaison Extraordinaire. Danny is from the land down under in Gold Coast, QLD, Australia — which is about 14 hours ahead of Linode Headquarters — where he’ll be contributing to our night shift support coverage.
Danny was previously with IBM Australia and also helped establish a VPS service for a local provider. We’re thrilled to have him on board. Please join us in welcoming Danny to the Linode family. You can catch him as ‘array’ in #linode.
Glad somebody will be covering the so-called “night shift”. It’s wee in the AM at my location. 🙂
As a fellow Gold Coast-er, welcome.
Hooray, Aussies at Linode! Hooray! 🙂
(about 60km away in Brisbane QLD)
Isn’t that the day shift? You USians always get things backwards.
Welcome to the staff array!
I hope you enjoy your new job with Linode.com. You couldn’t pick a better host to work for that cares more, and listens more to the members than Linode.com does.
I hope you find your new position rewarding.
Welcome from Mackay – that must nearly make us neighbours right? 😛
Yehey!!! Someone to cover the night shift (US time).
I live in the Philippines. At last we got some coverage during Philippine daytime.
Good work Linode. You are getting things in order everyday…
Welcome, from another Gold Coaster 🙂
P.S. When you have some time, please update Linode’s info at http://wiki.debian.org/DebianHosting
Way to go!
Welcome from the Aussie capital, Canberra!
I’ve had the pleasure of interacting with Danny Ariti and he has been really helpful and instrumental in resolving our problem !
That to in our day time here in India !
Way to go Danny & Linode !
Thanks Danny! (Array)
Linode.com is the best as of yet I have not seen one flaw in there service and support. My account was activated instantly, I received great support on #linode on OFTC I love it. Thanks for making it even better.
Welcome aboard from Wollongong, Dan.
Danny was very helpful today, fixing a problem that had been going on unsolved for a few weeks. Awesome.
Danny has helped me twice now and he is one of the most professional customer service agents I have ever dealt with. Thank you Danny.
Cool. Any thoughts of a Linode expansion to AU? It would be good to get the latency down…!
Daniel, I highly doubt that, considering the cost of bandwidth in the AU etc, unless they make some fancy special packages for that location…
