Wonderful Meeting You All — We’d Like More Feedback

October 9th, 2013 by Michael

Back from the cPanel Conference in New Orleans, where I had a wonderful time. Still getting used to cold shoulders after that Southern hospitality. The best part of the conferences, for me, is getting to meet all our customers — to hear your gripes and success stories and talk about the future together. I want to take this chance to extend the opportunity to give feedback beyond just the people that are able to make it to the conferences. If you have anything (LiteSpeed related) you want to talk to us about, please let us know. Email or call or make yourself known on the forums. We can’t do everything everybody wants, but getting an idea of what everybody wants will help guide where we go.

Thanks!
