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.
All you guys did was add money to what I built. You are selling because of
the peering that I set up. Sure you expanded on that a lot, but I am the
guy who got NetRail transit free.
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.
Well happy endings are when I get paid for my company. What 360 wants what
I built, not what you guys did after I left.
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
Nathan E and Keith are great guys, I am the guy who hired them and get
them into this business.
P.S. Nathan E and Keith, I do hope you get your Porsches, you guys have
come a very very long way in 5 years. I wish I made some money from
NetRail, but I was albe to buy my Porsche and house without NetRail and
would love to race someday in Atlanta. I may not win in my Boxster S, but
my new 911 GT3 will blow you away. :-)
