    ooh. feck.

    Well, Thank You Rich for favours past.
    for putting up with truly dumb questions, user error galore and never once losing a Professional outlook.
    whatever you go on to do;
    Best of luck with it and let us know.

    good service is hard to find - you only ever gave that.

    Sorry to hear about your job loss (and the rest of the employees) - that was a bolt from the blue - to me, at least.

    Good luck for the future

    If I am ever on life support - Unplug me......
    Then plug me back in..........

    See if that works .....

    Bloody hell, if a good company making an good product is unable to survive, that's a bad sign for us all...

    More to the point, good luck getting another job, not a great time to be unemployed but I'm sure you'll win through

    me too.... I've give you a hard time in the past about some of autocoms lack of standard features but at the end of the day I wouldn't want anyone to lose their job... I hope things work out for you and you get work soon... something you don't need near Xmas

    Good Luck

    Good luck Rich! Many thanks for your assistance in the past.

    So sad to hear that a manufacturer company that produces a quality product cannot make it.

    Really sorry to hear of your job loss & the demise of autocom. I have found it an excellent product & your advice when I was setting mine up, was invaluable.
    Hope you & the other autocom employees find new jobs soon.

    Kind regards
    Paul.
