Dear Linode.com Member:
I started development on Linode late-2002/early-2003, voluntarily leaving employment at a very good .com healthcare related company. I told myself that if it wasn’t a success by the end of the year (2003) that I’d call it quits. And so this was the year of reckoning for me and my life-long pursuit of entrepreneurial bliss.
Linode launched June 16th, 2003. Because of you, Linode is a [b]complete success[/b] and has a great foundation upon which to mature the service, grow, and continue to work out wrinkles; just as we’ve done over the past 6 months. Your suggestions and encouragement contribute to improving the overall Linode experience for everyone, and I can’t thank you enough.
Please accept my eternal gratitude, and best wishes for the new year to you and yours.
Happy New Year for 2004!
