Volumedrive ran away with the servers and users data

Volumedrive scam

Volumedrive ran away with the servers and users data. Their main website is offline and received a disturbing mail from burst.net regarding the same.

The mail says:

Hello,Unfortunately, due to a recent situation with VolumeDrive, your server is likely currently offline. BurstNET may be able to assist you in the matter, if by chance we still have your server in our possession, or can set you us a rush delivery replacement server.VolumeDrive was scheduled to relocate to our brand new facility here in PA, moved about 20% of their stuff in, put the rest of their stuff in another truck, and never showed up with the remainder at our facility. We tracked them to an office building about 20 miles away, and we assume the rest of the stuff is relocated there, and we saw all their cars and staff outside the building to confirm it. After 24 hours, they do not even have their own website online, so we question whether they will get anything online at all, and how they are going to explain the 300+ servers they left down in our facility with live clients on them.We do have a percentage of the servers they hosted, that they simply left behind, and are more than happy to accommodate you if possible. Even if we do not have the physical server we would be happy to rush build you a new machine and have it online as soon as possible, running in a company that has been in the industry for 23 years, and is not going anywhere soon. The first step in getting your server back online would be opening a ticket to sales@burst.net in which we will provide you with the steps for transferring service to us. We empathize with the inconvenience this has caused you, and want to do whatever we are able to get you, and your end clients/users/visitors, back online as soon as possible.Please contact sales@burst.net ASAP, and we will do our best to assist you in your time of need here…Thank you for your time.

One of my seedbox was down from past few days and i was wondering what could be the reason. Volumedrive is known for providing cheaps servers. Once upon a time BHW forum was hosted there. Its really unfortunate for everyone if they do not comeback. Hard work of so many people is just ruined because of their act. This is one of the treason you should aleays choose reliable web host.

cafe4tune : revolution in social networking


U.S. Cafe4tune.com (California) set up by a group of businessmen from Russia and Armenia announces the launch of Cafe4tune international social network. The founders and developers of the idea think that the network can start a healthy competition with such “monsters” as VK or Facebook. The budget of the project makes over USD 20mln.

Cafe4tune.com is the first “live” social network where a user may not only send and receive text messages from his friends and colleagues through the chat but also manage its own 3D projection in the virtual 3D world- natural environment with its streets, hotels, cafes and passers-by. Users may communicate with such avatars live or in the video format: use of any communication means is provided in almost all the sections of the network.

Another innovative feature that Cafe4fune.com is marked with is its business element. The network provides tools for creating virtual shops, galleries and exhibition halls with an option to organize online sales. Virtual spaces will bring the clients together as regular visitors of shops, galleries and other objects and can be as well used in their own business projects. In other words, Cafe4fune.com enables companies to promote their brands effectively and for minimum expenses.

Cafe4fune.com will allow conducting your own online live broadcasts of any kind of events through video cameras of mobile devices as well. Music lovers will be able to conduct and watch live broadcasts from clubs and concert halls, sport lovers may sit in the stadium and share “live” match of the favorite football team with friends. You can find the broadcast you need in a convenient way, by themes or genres, and those who missed the event will be able to watch its recording. Permanent online live broadcasts may this way become an independent business project for users of Cafe4fune.com.

The project features a great number of entertainment resources. Cafe4fune.com games are provided not only with game components but also options of video and audio-communication between the users.

The developers took into account important psychological and ethic aspects of the interaction of the network users as well creating special “tricks” such as for instance “polite refusal” of phone and video- calls.

The new social network has been developed for the past 3 years. As of now, since November 2011- the beta version of Cafe4fune.com has been launched. Developers plan to launch the alpha version where the site will look as originally it has been developed, from February 2012. Cafe4fune.com version is already launched for Android and iPhone and is available in 30 languages.

it is also avaibale for android and iphone .. those links are : http://www.appbrain.com/app/cafe4tune/com.cafe4tune and http://itunes.apple.com/tw/app/cafe4tune/id495933091?mt=8

Compare Mobile Broadband – 3G vs 4G

4g mobile broadband

For most of us, the internet has become a cornerstone of our lives and culture. Much of what we do and say is mediated by a vast network of connections. Until recently, access to this essential tool was essentially unmovable. Today, the processing power of phones has enabled us to take much of what we do on the internet with us anywhere we go. The type of connection you choose for your wireless device may seem like an afterthought, but it is in fact one of the most important decisions when considering wireless technology and wireless technology plans. After all, what good is a Lamborghini if all you have to drive on are dirt roads?

Third and Fourth Generation

When we compare mobile broadband deals and carriers, it must be understood that the two main options are 3rd Generation and 4th Generation, otherwise known as 3G and 4G. Each generation has its own standards and methods of handling data transmission. The time between the development of each generation has not been very long, but the differences in speed are incredible.

In terms of wireless broadband networks, think of 3G as a narrow dirt road, while 4G is something like a 10 lane super highway. The difference in speed is huge – a 3G connection maxes out at about 2 Mbps while a 4G connection can go even higher than 20 Mbps. This means 4G is potentially more than ten times faster than 3G.

Out with the Old

4G no longer depends on the archaic method of circuit switching which is based on old telephone systems. 4G communication is exclusively packet based, which means it is not bottle necked by the long out-dated phone system. On a 3G connection, the system’s available resources are dedicated equally to each connection, even if the open connection is not sending or receiving any information.

With 4G’s method of packet switching, resources are only used when there is an actual need for data transfer. There is no need to keep system resources on standby if they are not being used. Because of this change, 4G networks can handle more connections at the same time.

Handling the Masses

As mobile technology becomes more widespread, so too does the need for wireless broadband. More and more people are entering the wireless broadband market every day, and as they do, networks are increasingly burdened. 3G networks are very limited in their ability not only to handle multiple connections, but to provide adequate speed for each one. 4G, on the other hand, has utilized a number of new methods to not only handle more connections, but to also provide much higher speeds for each connection. In a world that is becoming increasingly reliant on the internet with each passing day, it is clear that when we compare mobile broadband deals across all providers, 4G technology is the main selling point.

Juggling your Internet Devices

Today’s technological marketplace is a great place to be, with so many different gadgets and gizmos that allow us to enjoy the freedom and convenience of mobile connectivity. From smartphones to tablets and all points in-between, there does seem no end to the exciting world of electrical products out there.


Little wonder then that the growth of internet usage is now greater than ever before, with many of us preferring to ditch our traditional desktop computers and move towards a more mobile way of carrying out our internet activities. Even the deals that offer ‘mobile broadband with free laptop’ that you see online aren’t being snapped up quite as hotly as they used to be, because many people are seeing the smartphone as the only tool they need.

All change

Of course, things have also been changing quite dramatically since the arrival of the tablet computer too, with the Apple iPad kicking things off and inspiring a wave of rival devices to hit the marketplace. The great thing with tablet computers and also the smartphone is that it has broadened the range of choice for people who need to use the internet and email on a daily basis.

Samsung Galaxy Mini

Better still, these gadgets all allow the consumer to enjoy much more choice and flexibility on the sort of operating system they use too. Indeed, unlike traditional computers that were largely dominated by the Windows OS for many years, people can now change to an operating system that meets their needs. As a result, we’ve seen a huge increase in the popularity of the Google Android OS on both smartphones and tablets.

Another angle

Right now, there are numerous operating systems and many different tablets to choose from – meaning that selecting one can be tricky. Added to that, many smartphones now offer such a powerful computing experience that many of us think that a handset like this can do all we want, and more besides, with the ultimate in portability. The downside? Well, smartphones are small and even with a decent sized screen, the smartphone can be a little limiting when it comes to staying productive.



Naturally then the tablet device is filling the gap been a laptop and a smartphone perfectly. However, thanks to increasing competition in the marketplace it is now becoming possible to get deals that bundle not only a smartphone but also a tablet into one portable package. That sort of choice ticks all of the boxes for many people so there’s simply no need to juggle with the choice of which internet enabled device to get.

Few invites left for Diaspora, the open source “Facebook killer”

Diaspora is a “privacy-aware, personally controlled, do-it-all distributed open-source social network“. It’s a decentralized alternative to social network services like Facebook. Diaspora works by letting users set up their own server, like a hosted wordpress installation, to host content; pods can then interact to share status updates, photographs and other social data.

diaspora It’s your data and you ought to be controlling it. Diaspora is to allow participants to retain ownership of all the material they use on the site, and retain full control over how that information is shared. It categorizes the social connections into individual groups called Aspects, and the user can control which groups see which material.


Diaspora lets you sort your connections into groups called aspects. Unique to Diaspora, aspects ensure that your photos, stories and jokes are shared only with the people you intend.


You own your pictures, and you shouldn’t have to give that up just to share them. You maintain ownership of everything you share on Diaspora, giving you full control over how it’s distributed.


Diaspora makes sharing clean and easy – and this goes for privacy too. Inherently private, Diaspora doesn’t make you wade through pages of settings and options just to keep your profile secure.

In short it’s the social network which respects your privacy the most.

The Alpha version of Diaspora is out !

A few invites are left. Click on the following link to sign up for Diaspora
