BitVPS is an excellent VPS provider, but treating them as a secure alternative to linode without really thinking about the security considerations involved would be a bad idea.

Better idea:

If you have a hot wallet with 3,000 - 42,000 Bitcoin, please consider running your own dedicated machine  under your bed, including dedicated hardware firewall.

If i had a server with a hot wallet containing 42k bitcoins I would host it under my bed Tongue

And what would that accomplish exactly?

This is a great idea. Slush has been one of my favorite pools for so long and knowing the problems the man has gone through by just keeping a pool with this many users and the things that happen when your trafficking volume like his is a sheer testament to the drive that is bitcoin and success.
BitVPS wants to help? Great! Keep up the good work for the community.

Hey guys, here are some stats:

Sunday, March 11th, the first donations went to slush.

Total: 6.73 BTC

Txid: 80a600e97ad73386b57a9cf96da83f997cbf9593b74b7c249c777d9257e90f35

Thanks everyone who donated! We'll keep accepting funds for a while longer!

Remember: use coupon code 'SLUSH' when ordering your VPS. OpenVZ Plan 1 excluded. (It's already about a BTC, we cant lose any more on it, its very close to cost)

James!

I'll vouch for rg; he's the trader I trust most in OTC other than people I know IRL from before Bitcoin existed.

 I ll also vouch for rg, a trusted #bitcoin-otc member, and I also trust him to provide very good VPS services and support on #bitvps ( I m more used to dedicated servers but still very happy of my bitvps Wink ).

When I got my server I did not use a coupon code :/    Is it too late?

Hello Sir, just email james@bitvps.com with your name and a Bitcoin address and I'll make sure you get your 15% and slush gets his donation Smiley

You stupid motherfuckers.
Im all for P2pool but the way you guys advertise/plug it is DEPLORABLE.

This thread has nothing to do with slush's pool. It has to do with us helping someone in the community who's helped us all mine thousands upon thousands of Bitcoins and got dealt a bad hand.

So, Fuck off.

 Personaly I dont treat them as "a secure alternative to linode" , clearly no more than any other provider or even datacenter.

 Shit happen, to everyone, but having skillfull and fast reaction + good IRC support . . . is still interesting, the Web of trust too Wink

More along the lines of you making money off that misery and tossing slush a piece of it, I fail to see where you are offering to help anyone without first getting yours. So it is a toss up in the deplorable advertising department here.

That's a really cynical and uninformed opinion.  BitVPS is small company providing excellent service at a minimal cost.  With these donation-driven sign-ups, I imagine that RG's probably just about at-cost on the services provided.  He's trying to a good thing using the vehicle he's already got in place, and it's not very fair of you to insinuate that this is a money-making scheme.  Also, he provided a direct Bitcoin address for people to donate without purchasing BitVPS service.  Don't be such a troll.

If he had wanted to help slush without making money off of it then he could simply have posted a donation address.

I donate blood every 8 weeks, and I go see movies about once every couple months. I earn 'points' that I can redeem for free movie tickets by giving blood. This makes going to the movies cheaper. If I didn't earn points, I would still donate blood, and I would still go to the movies.

What BitVPS is doing is similar. They are offering a discount for people who want a VPS, and also want to donate to slush. Without this, they would probably still be getting a VPS, it's hardly an impulse purchase market afaik.
