Re: Network for Sale

  • From: David Diaz

One reason why I thought the name should have been changed long ago. The only thing about Netrail that is legacy is the name. There is nothing left from the original company of long ago and a name change would have helped show that. The people there have helped bring it a long way and deserve the credit for doing so. It brings up the interesting point of when do the people that are there start getting the credit instead of a former founder that has not had anything to do with the company for 4 years. I mean that as a general topic not just relating to Netrail.

As far as this deal going Im sure that 360 got a hell of a head start on an IP network by their purchase and Netrail found a good home. Nice to see happy endings on the net.

My hats off to the Netrail team. Especial congrats to Nathan E, Mark, Keith and Brandon. I also hope Scott P never decides to flame me on a lis, apparently he has a talent. I hope you all are getting 360network Porsches.

Once again congrats gentlemen, my hats off to you. It was an honor and a pleasure to serve with you all.

#1 I don't think NANOG is the place and #2 I have no problem with you or
anything you are doing at Netrail. You are not one of the people that
took NetRail from me. As far as the email, I have no interest in talking
to anyone at Netrail as sendmail will say when you try to send me email.
You frankly have no idea how the company was sold, I bet they said that
they actually paid me for the thing.

I am sure you guys disclosed to 360 that the fonder never received a dime
for NetRail and that there is a good possibility that he can prove fraud
and ownership to a very large chunk of stock.

Anyway, I think I have used enough NANOG bandwidth with this crap, I just
can't resist a little slam now and then.


Thank you,
