Those are for WHT community.... First impressions..
- The e-mail traffic with the person who first contacted me (Elaine from the accounting dept.) was lightning fast. About 5 e-mails in around 15-20 minutes or so.. (Multiply 5 emails with 2, as she sent me replies also)
- I called the UK yesterday in a very early time in the morning and the phone was picked up right away. A mate, his name is Paul, listened to me about if it would be possible to setup the server with XFS file system and guided me to Dave about the issue in a short time.
- Although I guess Dave is the person who will set the server up -which means he probably always has some work to do- replied all my e-mails in very short times and we argued on setting up the server with Fedora Core 4, with XFS file system.
- I'm checking the speed of the test file from time to time within last 1 month or so, and it always has been downloaded with the highest possible speed within my DSL limit. Of course, that's not a guarantee for the bandwidth of my server, as if they put lots of different servers on one 100 Mbit switch, but I don't think so.
- The reason the server isn't setup yet is that both because we have e-mailed each other about the server setup and I said them not to hurry about setting up the server as I have some work to do until Thursday.
- Everything seems great so far, except they don't accept credit cards. Maybe that's something about trust, I will ask that again. Other than that, relations with the customer looks also dedicated, something which you may or may not find with every company. What I mean here is that it didn't take 8 hours to get a reply to an e-mail. That's important.
