Down Memory Lane - FreeVPS.tk
#1
Tonight - with lots of time on my hands and being curious about the history of FreeVPS - checked through FreeVPS's oldest threads.  This is the oldest thread I found - Lower MySQL RAM Use:
https://freevps.us/thread-2.html

Can't believe how many leaps in RAM we've taken in only seven years. 

Haha ..... just imagine what will happen to a thread like this today and how organized we've become:

Aha ... first we were FreeVPS.tk:

Tracked an older version of FreeVPS with the WayBack Machine.  This is an interesting discussion in April 2010 - old style Forum:

A review in August 2011 - Haha .... we've come a very LONG way since then:

A VPS List of August 2011- just look at the RAM specs:

RAM increasing in 2012 but not by much:

Still about the same RAM in 2013:

I remember those low RAM numbers years ago... I can't believe I've been on this site for three years. I like how powerful the VPS have become but I think I've become less ambitious with my projects. Either that or I've taken up too many responsibilities and don't have time to mess with one with that much power anymore.

Not that I was around for any of this, but it's interesting that these forums were once a thing (they're disabled in the ACP, but still technically exist):

Giveaway Manager, FreeVPS Directory and Discussion

Also a big fan of Anime, see my poor taste here.

Thanks @Ignis. That's definitely very interesting to me. I'm having great fun working through the old Announcements as well. Interesting with the WayBack Machine of the earlier years - like 2010-2012 WayBack copied much more of the forum than later years. So if one checked the topics of those days one could go deeper into the Forum, whereas today the copying is much more superficial.

I'm curious. I picked up on IT30 in the announcements but there is no explanation about it - what is it? - is there a story behind it?

Browsing those old links, I see @luis123456 that's a name I haven't seen in a while lol.

I do agree that 2014 was a very good year though.

I'm happy to see this site come this far. It is a fun ride Cheese

We had a couple. German forum never saw much activity though, I believe the Dutch forum had like 4 threads. In the end, there weren't enough local members to take care of it, and why would you ask your question in a localized forum and wait for an answer when you could ask it in the English section and get instant help?
I'm the oldest still-active member of this forum.
Got any questions? I'm here to help! Just shoot me a PM and I'll get back to you.
