  • Rimuhosting Summer Soccer 2009

    Every year the staff at head offices are made to do this thing called exercise. It apparently keeps us fit and healthy and makes our brain work or some such. Either way, its a legitimate way to beat the crap out of our workmates and other innocent gamers using a ball as our weapon, […]

  • We’re a Team

    We see lots of different problems every day as Liz noted the other day.  It’s really quite varied work that we do and you can go from resetting a password one minute to setting up load balanced proxy servers the next.  There’s always a fun and challenging problem right around the corner.
