Hi All,


Stumbled on here by way of Google, seeking some info about a NZ hosting company I've had some drama with. What actually pricked my ears, was the reference to 24/7 (hosting). I'd experienced some shocking treatment at the hands of Caleb. And, after reading some of the woefully bad treatment GeekZone members had also received, figured it was worth my time signing up.


I've been a web developer for close on 19 years. While I consider myself pretty savvy, with internet smarts, what happened with 24/7 and sadly continues with other 'cowboys' in the hosting industry, means, least to me, forums such as GeekZone NZ are truly appreciated :)
