Lol. What a fail parade. Can't I take a business trip on the weekend without everyone getting their panties in a bunch?


For the record, I've used the same totally crap starter VPS to host a lot of the websites I manage until Vladimir was able to get his hosting service ready for me. Everything is being moved over (I think I already said that, in this thread even...). bittalk.tv and dcao.org are both on the same server. When one goes down, so does the other.

For those saying things like "I didn't get my email answered", I am not the only one who answers emails. Adam Harding (who is in charge of advertising accounts currently) or Mihai Alisie (our marketing director) will be glad to respond to your inquiries. All of our contact information can be found at http://bitcoinmagazine.net

For those thinking I've "bit off more than I can chew", I have like 3948923 companies. Relax. The first magazine ever has to go through the rigid and highly annoying process of standardization and reformatting. I've brought more and more professionals on board as we have developed to make sure the second issue is even less time consuming.

For those thinking what we are doing is "impossible" and "must be a scam", you bring a smile to my face to know how well we must be doing for anyone to think that.

For those of you (like Goat) who have paid for things like "website design", "advertisements", etc and then run to this thread to yell 'scam' because you completely ignored my initial warnings that A) I am highly expensive, B) the magazine is top priority, not your design, and C) I would make sure to clear the designs with you before we went to print (which I haven't failed to do yet), I'll be sending you a full refund as it's apparent I have misread your maturity.

For those saying that I went AWOL 'without notifying anyone', I'm pretty sure about 50 people or so knew exactly where I was. I'm kind of pissed no one bothered to fucking defend me, but such is bitcointalk.org. On that note, we'll be posting regularly on the website (not his thread) with updates on the progress of the magazine so everyone can get their fill.

Flatplan is finished, designers are taking another look at the photography limitations tonight and the entire design will be recompiled and sent to printers in a few days. For everyone who's paid and has waiting their fair share, I appreciate the steadfast trust. We deserve it and you didn't make a mistake. For everyone else, please go suck a pole while the very first Bitcoin magazine in history gets put together.

Peace

P.S. Bruno, not everyone here knows you're just trolling for shits and giggles. Keep the FUD a little less subtle for the newbies who send 10 emails in a period of 10 minutes expecting a reply to each one.

Matthew

I opt to send you this as a PM opposed to on one of the threads. As you probably clearly read I, as well as Rassah, defended you throughout all this. I was way too busy to stop all the naysayers, but I tried. I'm glad to see you back and hope the business you had to take care of went well.

Your Friend,

Bruno

PS: I won't mention this PM, if you don't.


Sorry mate. I'm PMSing, and your secret is safe with me.

Guess I have to put out a bit of a fire here. False alarm folks.

Matthew had said that he would be on the road until Monday, South Korea time I presume. I think we should expect to hear from him within 24 hours.

Ahem,

Was off by a day but was nothing to panic about. As I tried to make clear early on with this post.

We've all just seen the "take everyone's money and disappear without telling anyone" thing go down here too many times, Matthew, that's all.  When you disappeared without making note of it on bitcointalk, and no one bothered to defend you until the last minute (except Phinnaeus, who no one knew if he was joking or not), it started freaking people out.  A quick note that you were going on vaca probably would have avoided all of it.

Anyway, glad to hear things are on track and almost to print!  Thinking about ordering me another...

It would have been cool if it was a publicity stunt as a fake scam. It would have made a good story for the first issue.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Hindsight is 20/20. Now that Mihai has the blog on the site up, crap like this won't happen anymore I suppose.

Does it tell us when you're sleeping? What if you have a prolonged stay in the restroom - will the blog be updated to prevent future panics?

Vicente told me I should get a streaming webcam for my study, but I have way too much sex in my house to let that happen.

Me too. I had 400 emails to read when I got back, and most of them had "bitcoin magazine" somewhere in the title. -_-;

I'm finalizing the flatplan again right now (things changed over the weekend, including what articles would be included etc).

What you need to do is, EVERY time you go on vacation, take all the Bitcoin magazine sites offline. After a while we'll get used to it, and it'll change from "OMG MATTHEW RAN OFF WITH ALL OUR MONEY!" to "OMG MATTHEW IS ON VACATION!"

Honestly, though, I just thought you got banned for a few days again  Roll Eyes

I can accept that order manually through the website's email contact but for the moment our system isn't set up to allow pre release purchases of downloadable goods.

Update: flatplan was all finished last night. Had some issues with some of the photos for a few of the articles and now it is being handled. Final layouts will take up to 3 days, followed by an additional group verification process of each page. Also changed printers due to a shipping and ordering restriction.

For those saying that I went AWOL 'without notifying anyone', I'm pretty sure about 50 people or so knew exactly where I was. I'm kind of pissed no one bothered to fucking defend me, but such is bitcointalk.org. On that note, we'll be posting regularly on the website (not his thread) with updates on the progress of the magazine so everyone can get their fill.
