This is a big surprise, being an Online Logistics customer. Dan and Jake were as honest as the day is long when it came to my deal in 2015–16, and I have recommended them to others. nzherald.co.nz/business/news/a

Spent some time upgrading the streaming Mac mini today. Using my week-ends for fun stuff, what a concept!
