Hey there,

I'm sure everybody knows the CI Host story by now...

But I have just found out that it's owner is the graduate of Concordia University in Montreal, the school I go to at the moment... Even the faculty is the same. And I've also heard that he managed to sue the university for something as well.. Oh, wait, that was not him - that was his mom..

Best,

What story are you talking about?
Have you ever leased a dedicated server from them?

The name of the thread is a bit misleading, sorry.

The story is that the CI Host owner was from the same school that I'm at now.

I wasn't CI Host's client, but I've heard lots of stories about it... Negative stories.

He is truly an inspirational person to people around the world, and his success proves to other business owners that talent, dedication and hard work pay off in unimaginable ways."

Concordia University it is.. And I'm pretty sure it was the one in Montreal, Canada.
