Will CPANEL Die if something happens to Nick?

    It seems to me that Nick does most of the programming in CPANEL. If something was to happen to Nick (e.g. sickness, accident, death or retirement) would that mean CPANEL would be vaporware??

    I mean, 5 years from now this could be a possibility. With all the popularity and money he is making he could retire pretty early :D :D

    I hope everything will be okay as I plan to use cpanel for a long time.. But imagine the day if this does come, 30,000 host would probably get knocked off the web
    :p

    I apologize if I'm wrong. Just speculating as it seems everytime we have a bad update or something screws up, Nick has to be the one who fixes it...

    =\

    I wouldn't mind knowing, I was wondering myself what would happen if cpanel just went on the "blink" which was one of the reasons I was going to make my own

    Nick, got any answers?

    I had saw a post quite a long time ago, where I believe Nick said it would go open source in the event of a catastophe. Perhaps someone wants to look for that post.

    I believe that there will be three new features added to WHM 2010.0.0-Stable

    WHM - Backups -
    1. Cryogenically Freeze Nick
    2. Thaw Nick Out
    3. Clone Nick

    ROFLOA! good one nybble

    If I were Nick, I'd be more worried about a system administrator that's been up 3 days fixing a botched upcp. :p

    hehe :)

    I was thinking about making my own control panel but I can't figure out how honestly, and I don't kno wwhere to look

    So its cpanel for me :)



    Also, I see people here talking about cpanel bugs, myself - I wish nick would put-off cpanel 9 and go threw the other versions and clean up the code, fix known bugs, protect aganst bugger over flows etc.

    I know I'm just one person and Nick does what he wants, but I think it would be nice if cpanel was made into a "rock solid" control panel

    I think it would be cool to have a feature [FEATURE REQUEST] that would let you enable/disable php, asp, etc.


    Also something that sees ALL BANDWIDTH, not just http/pop3
    "Remote" access to accounts, say I have a billing program, and I want them to be in cpanel with just 1 click (They don't need to login again)

    But, I guess I can keep it as 2 control panels :)

    Anyway, I'm out :)

    Think about it....

    First you say not to keep adding, but to perfect what is.

    Then you make requests for new features.

    If you had to choose one or the other, which would it be? ;)

    That's what Nick is faced with every day. Some people want the current software perfected. Some want new features. Some want both. :confused:

    I'd say he's doing a very good job of making as many people as possible happy.

    Yes, he is :)

    But I think it would be cool if all the current known bugs were fixxed before he moves onto say.. cpanel 8.9 or 9
