I debated either doing a video post for this or typing it all out. I decided to go the ‘text’ route because while a video would be very personal, I think something like this doesn’t need me jumping around distracting from the real message.
I’m very sorry for so many things that have taken place over the past few weeks but also that has been driving me ‘up the wall’ the past year or so. First off, the server move did not go as we expected. We were told there would be a maximum of 2 hours of downtime but everything would be perfect after. Well, that wasn’t the case. We lost a lot of customers because of this and we truly are sorry for the way it was handled.
We made this move to the new servers so that we could continue to grow and build a server cluster that would take care of our customers for years to come. We were thinking long term here and while we are happy to be on the new servers and able to grow now, we do wish the problems could have been averted.
You have shown a lot of trust in us over the past few months since TimTech was formed. And we let you all down. Big time. We will be working extra hard now to build that trust up again and hope that you do see we want nothing but our members to benefit from all this server work we have done.
Which brings me to a personal point…Let’s put it this way, Jon Olson has been a prick over the past year. I’ve had this massive chip on my shoulder, anger, defensive and just all around rotten person. Personal issues aside, this is NOT the way I am and I took the past two weeks off to get ‘my mind right’. I think this has contributed big time to all the TimTech ‘hate’ that pops up and I have not only let down our members but also the TimTech nerds as well.
Apologies aren’t enough , actions are what matters from now on. Yes I will still be opinionated but from now on, the chip won’t be there. I am sorry for treating everyone like crap and I have become something I don’t like. Seems like drama and many people might be scratching their head going why should I care about what Jon is going through.
I love the traffic exchanges. They have been my life for over 13 years and I truly believe that you folks are the best people in the internet marketing world. I wear my emotions on my sleeve and I consider many of you to be my family in this crazy business. But business is what this is, and I’ve been quite the little drama queen during the past few months if not longer.
I am putting the focus back on business and hope everyone enjoys the new ‘Jon Olson’.
Thank you for reading and we will be working very hard to bring TimTech back!
