While my Weeners to the story was "fark that asshole", I have taken the opportunity to look within and reflect upon my own feelings and response in light of this new development. fark that asshole with immediate effect.

Btw subby, great headline.

Weeners? I wrote Weeners. Wtf? I'm no wasted. Not right now.

Some people are born assholes, and some people have assholedom thrust upon them.

Either way, they're just an asshole.

Well... bye, you racist f*ck.

/Makes note to ask our IT guy to make sure none of our cloud stuff has anything to do with Solid8 in any way.

Hey, head down here to the Confederacy. I'm sure there's still opportunities for models to pose for bronze statues.

I love how the company website is now basically one big beggy apology letter referencing the incident.  They know they are absolutely farked by this asshole's actions.  GoodGrumpyCat.jpg.  You have assholes leading the ship...the ship sinks with the asshole.
 
2020-07-12 9:14:00 PM  
But CEO's deserve SOOO much more salary because of the increased value they deliver over you pleebs. Right.

More like a Limpy 3.5.

You have a 15 year old Fark account, and are unaware of the filters?

You can see earlier versions on the internet archive. The company boasts of 38 years of experience in something or other. In other words, it's 2 or 3 guys in a rented office somewhere running an overhyped consulting firm. "CEO" is kind of a stretch for the guy in charge.

Well... it was 2 or 3 guys in a rented office somewhere.  Right now, I imagine it's 1 guy and maybe his buddy hunched over on the couch drinking and repeating. "shiat... shiat... shiat"  over and over.

Many racists reveal their true attitudes when disinhibited by alcohol. Another reason why alcohol has redeeming values. I'll drink to that!
And fark that guy.

"The company" was him. "They" are him.
 
2020-07-13 12:54:03 AM  
Holy shiat he's actually saying he is basically annoyed his stupid apology didn't work so he has to resign now. What an asshole

Ladies and gentlemen:  Your cloud computing platform!

Gone in nanoseconds after a member of the company is exposed as dick cheese in human form!  Perfect, migrate onto it accordingly.

Did you notice that, in entertainment, tech CEOs are becoming the new standard villain ? The most recent example I can think of are Devs and The Old Guard (who even have a remark that all tech CEOs have private armies now)

Damn filter, always thrusting weeners into your asshole situation.
 
2020-07-13 3:27:49 AM  
I'm pleased that the restaurant supported the server. Also fark that ex-ceo guy.

Same here.

For the ex-CEO, good luck ever being a CEO again.

"Trump's gonna f*ck you."

"And I'm.. just gonna f*ck myself, I guess."


And even aside from the racist angle, if you're triggered by people singing happy birthday at a restaurant, you need to get a farking grip.

It's never a good sign when someone searches your company name and the only results are the CEO resigning. No website found.

I can't find what the company sold or serviced. Can anyone tell me what solid8 did?

Pitched endlessly to Venture Capital to the exclusion of all else, I imagine.

Yeah..Trumps fault.  This guy never had a racist bone in his body until he read about Trump saying 'Kung flu'.

Of course it does. That's how the water gets in.

hestheone: Yeah..Trumps fault.  This guy never had a racist bone in his body until he read about Trump saying 'Kung flu'.


So looking at what this guy said, the part you don't like is that he brought Trump into it?

/as if there'd be any mystery about his politics even if he hadn't mentioned the racist in chief

They're an AWS reseller with some flimsy value-add services.

To echo mcmiller, subby, that was well done on the headline. I spent a few seconds, at first, wondering what they were thinking naming a company like that and then drew the connection.
 
2020-07-13 8:24:13 AM  
I wonder if they got out of paying their bill when they were ejected

Oh thank god, that's exactly what the world needed more of:  Middlemen of negative merit!

In other words, his one man shop is closing to be re-opened under a different operating name and it will be business as usual.
 
2020-07-13 10:39:39 AM  
"Resigned"? Wasn't his "company" just him?  I suppose he'll be "Tech CEO" under a new name next week.

Yeah, when this happened, I looked at their site.  It was like they found a "business site" bootstrap and set it up.  "Blog" was one of the main sections, but there weren't any entries.

There's your problem right there. Change "amateur" to "Independent" or something equally authoritative-sounding-yet-meaningless and watch the revenue flood in.

This.'mi don't care how much alcohol he consumed, you have to be a complete piece of sh*t to interrupt someone's birthday party with racist crap.

I mean jeez.
