If you have been following along closely, you know that in June we had to switch hosting companies on very short notice and under extreme duress. Our good friend and scripting demi-god TDavid recommended Cyberwurx, which he assured us could handle our very strange configuration, multiple users, and keep us up and running 24/7.
He was right: we have been extremely pleased with th value of our deal, the reliability of their equipment, and most importantly, their customer service, which has been virtually instantaneous, courteous, efficient, and competent. In short Cyberwurx rules.
