Much of that was in the way of free hosting and or advice which people can read in a variety of community places or as many do, call and ask. I have saved the day for countless businesses, governments, individuals, and livelihoods as long as I can remember that were down for the count if I couldn't pull a rabbit out of a hat and save the day. I have saved customer systems from total data loss and job loss 24/7 for as long as I can remember and I would like to continue to do that.
At one time I helped so many people online that I became know worldwide as the go-to expert for the Cobalt RaQ and Qube line of internet appliances for web hosting and office router/storage/services. The RaQ line is seen pictured here shortly before it was virtualized into servers that need to be replaced again.
I have a very bad story that can't be told in a few paragraphs but it left me rebuilding my life, and business with debt to repay, which I have now repaid. Unfortunately, I am a team of one now and I have to ask for help with the only two things I want to do with what is left of my life. Rebuild my business and try to get justice for a group of people I sometimes speak for now. I don’t expect justice for myself. But I would be forever grateful to bring a little resolve to this neverending nightmare that has affected so many lives where I live.
Fortunately, I'm good at keeping things going on the server side and that side lives on abet with a lot less traffic and with aging equipment. I strongly recommend and love Dell servers. I still have some very important customers, but I like to say that I'm responsible for over 50,000 people having a good day on the internet and making a living. I need help making sure that their services are safe and secure both from internet threats and disruption of services that could affect their livelihood.
I need funding to buy updated equipment. I have found some low price servers as well as the additional supplies I need to make things run smooth, New batteries so I can install a couple UPS's I already have as backups to the datacenter's various supplies, WD backups, Servers, Switches, and a whole bunch of Cat6 cables. This will allow me to get my network back to stable and get back to the business of helping people secure their business and life.
As much as I have helped people over the last 40 years, when I needed help there was little to be found. After I got away from the problem I searched for help for 2 years and found none except the support of my customers, many of which I consider friends at this time. I really don't expect this to even get any views or support to be honest. But it will provide me with a little hope., and hope is a very rare commodity for me these days.
The new business is ready to put into operation, the tests are done, newer servers, switches, and cables are on the wish list. It’s just a matter of cleaning it up for production and with some better marketing than mine it should be a Cyber Security hit nobody saw coming.
$5000 should get things going and help me keep going, recovering, and supporting myself again. I sure could use a lot more so I could advertise better and for other things like car and life of course. I have paid all the business debt off and I am ready for another run at it.
