Corpsey the Bear Website

December 15, 2006

Amigos,

Corpsey the Bear’s website will be down for some time thanks to a shoddy business known as ‘MSTAR’. MSTAR is based in Salt Lake City, and like most businesses in Utah, they are fly-by-night and devious. My host and I were recently hosed-over by them and already it’s cost my friend $8,000.00 in lost revenue.

What happened: my buddy’s set-up served over 100 individuals with a Priority One line. He had difficulty with one of his five IP addresses. He made a quick call to MSTAR, believing that they would fix the problem. Instead, they shut down ALL his IP addresses. Individuals that were signed up with him began selling their contracts. Within 4 days he lost $8,000.00 worth of income.

MSTAR. Did they fix the problem? No. It’s been a week now and they continue to argue over policies. There has been a great deal of lip-service from incompetent techies who ‘can fix anything’.

Bottom line: we’re being dicked with, with a typical, poorly-run Utah technology business. My advice? Use a business outside the state for your web hosting and DNS services.

My advice to my friend? When it hits a loss of $25K (March, 2007), sue the living Hell out of them.

Don’t make me tell you twice,

Glaston
