    It’s nice to meet you all. I must say that I’m very impressed at how friendly and supportive everyone is here. This is def one of the more supportive environments I have ever come across!

    We provide 24/7 onsite computer support for home users and small business. It’s amazing how many people need support after 10pm! – thanks to the internet. It’s not a new concept, but it’s a concept that is working well for us. We are located in Gippsland Victoria (approx 2hrs east of Melb) but we also do some contract work in Melbourne. Luckily, we are enjoying the challenges of growth at the moment. It hasn’t always been rosy and that’s why I can relate to the experiences and resources posted on this site.

    Thank you very much for the warm welcome..

    .. And I will get on to my signature now ;)

    Hi PhillEric! I’m a newbie too but yes, it’s a great place to hang out to exchange ideas, gain support and see how other people do things.

    Do you have a website? Looking forward to seeing your signature updated so I can check it out.

    You’re right though – we reckon we’ve got the friendliest, most generous community members in the country. Thanks for the kind words, and we hope you enjoy hanging out here.

    All the best,
    Jayne

    Hi PhillEric

    IT support after 10pm’s a winner for any business really! I know as a web design and development business that our clients call us at strange times, latest support was 2am!

    Perhaps we can even help each other out, I know some of our clients think we work on hardware but usually we just decline those jobs. Funny how web development and repair get mixed up. Throw over your web address. You can check us out at http://www.chromatix.com.au

    Hear from you soon PhillEric

    Cheers
    Irwin

    Good Evening All,

    Sorry for the late reply! I hope I haven’t given you the wrong impression, we really are a small company (compared to others in the same industry) but we have very high ambitions ;)

    I would be more than happy to share our ups and downs and ups and downs and uuppps… The journey so far has been hugely rewarding for me and every experience (whether up or down) has been turned into positive learning experience for us.

    Our web address is http://www.24geek.com.au – the name sums up what we do, and yes, we do – 24hours a day. Although, after 10pm is by pre-booking or emergency only.

    I’d encourage anyone to drop me a line, anytime. I’d love to hear and learn about you. Not sure if i can drop my email here.. Irwin.. I will send you an email!

    Cheers!
    PhillEric

    Hi PhillEric,
    you seem to feel very welcome by now but another can’t hurt so.. welcome!

    At 8 employees you’re probably in the bigger half of businesses on the forum. You’d be amazed at how many micro businesses there are here (and I don’t think its for having too much time on their hands) but this forum really is an amazing source of both knowledge and connections.

    See you round!

    Cheers,
    Michael
