Linode 2003 Year-end Review

Dear 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!

    Happy New Year from us in the southern hemisphere, where we are in a tropical heat wave at the moment. 😳

    You have truly created a unique product, and have technical skills way beyond any other host I’ve encountered.

    Best of luck in the future. :mrgreen:

    Happy New Year!

    Chris, thanks for providing a great product and great service. I hope you have enjoyed running Linode as much as I have enjoyed using it.

    Its a relief that Chris has been successful and not shut down, I agree with gmt, this is an excellent product, lets hope that linode continues to be as good as it is now.
    Having bought a years worth of Linode 96 from Jan 1 , my money is where my mouth is.
    My only wish is that in the New Year Chris finds a way to clone himself so support will be 24/7.
