    Had no idea russel left. I remember him coming to my former company around 2003’ish to present his services and Utande became the net provider via fibre. Gosh I miss that 512K line and Utande will email me the usage reports…ummm definitely off the charts with eDonkey and eMule working overtime after hours!! 🙂

    Anyway good luck to her. I always viewed Utande as a very good ISP though then they only took business clients due to their prices

    Great Stuff. Early Christmas, mother Christmas, mother nurture “not nature”. I am sure with her experience more can be realized.

    Congratulations once again
