Why the plain style of the site?
- Security, the lowest resource use, and ease of maintenance. Our
is to give you a feel of who we are, what we do and as we don’t do
flashy things we don’t want our website to be flashy.
you do websites?
- While we can help on many aspects of a web presence, actual
design and layout isn't an area we focus on. There are plenty of
people available to assist with that part, we know many and can refer
you to them. If you really like the plain style of this site, we can
- If you are looking at having some help with reviewing your website
content or even adding content, that is something that we might be

no physical address listed?
- We don't have any storefront as we are a service
- We work from where we are, which is typically our home
and/or at our
clients, though we are geared to provide our services from where ever
we happen to be. Furthermore, we can also meet you at a location that works for
both of us.
we start a relationship with you (client or vendor), then you will
get our address here in Toronto, Canada.
Why no listed
hours of operation?
- Enough of our work has various time constraints that cover
hours in a week that has us having to shift our hours often enough
that there is no such thing as "regular" hours. Midnight
server reboots and weekend migrations just blow away the conventional
9 to 5 routine.
ensure that the work is done to meet the demands/needs of our clients
and if that means working evenings or weekends we can do that.
Why no obvious social
- The nature of what we do and how we do it doesn't lend
to a lot of social media. We do have some presence on LinkedIn,
Twitter, Facebook, and possibly others. We can also be found in some vendor
communities. If you find us, do keep in mind our appearances there are sporadic,
depending on the rest of our activities. Email and phone will still generally be the
more reliable connection options.
Novell? Aren't they dead?
- Not by a long shot. While they are now part of Micro Focus
old company name is being phased out, their products have continued
to evolve and grow all along, while continuing to be secure. Some
will have had full name changes as part of the migration to 64-bit
computing such as NetWare is now Open Enterprise Server that is based
on SUSE Linux, while others still maintain at least part of their old
names, such as GroupWise.
