Sigh... unfortunately it was inevitable. I've spoken with Francisco and it turns out he never really made any money. He said that BuyVM is up to its eyeballs in debt with maxed out credit. I guess he just wanted to be popular or something.
I mean, he even got providers like **systems and *ordicvps copying him. My 12 vms have been running great so far, but it looks like they're going to close in about a month when HE shuts them down.
I've also really started to notice performance impacts - they must be loading the nodes trying to gain more money. I hope Francisco doesn't run with the money.. only time will well. An official announcement is slated to come out later on this week.
