    Colin was mainly selling the VeryPC Glide and Broadleaf One with his ninja skills so couldn't be with you I'm afraid. We miss @X-13 too. Wait, what? Did I really refer to myself in the 3rd person?.. Shucks.

    We're now the top repped sponsor on EduGeek, and it's all thanks to you lot!

    It's a major EduGeek milestone for us and I am going to shamelessly draw attention to it here. We've just cracked 6,000 reputation points, have earned our long awaited 2nd bronze star and are now the highest repped sponsor on EduGeek. There is no way we could have got there without the help of all you awesome Stocktobians (literally - you are the ones who've been thanking my posts).

    So I just want to say thank you very much for all your contributions, silly jokes, funny pics, and general fun times. You're a cracking bunch, you are.



    Keep it up folks.

    Al

    Sure, I'll book a minibus for anyone wishing to join. Of course if I win its all off and verypc will be the best company in the world ever! Or I will still drive over to give them a hug. But either way I'll still stop for ice cream.

    Al...whilst other suppliers on here are fantastic...you guys are extremely personable. You are great on the phones, offer great advice, even to people that arent your customers (my former boss called and said someone there actually advised what he wanted to do was a waste of money and ethically he cannot endorse the sale). Says it all really :-)

    I can supply a 'hound from hell' to help out if you haven't won -

    He'll also be more than happy to help out at the ice cream stop -

    *cough* *splutter* I am bed ridden with Al's Disease for the finale of Stock2ber and just wanted to say a few words in case I don't make it through. *cough*

    It's been a rollercoaster hasn't it guys? There have been, prizes, videos, pictures, laughter, tears, friendships forged, reputations shattered, jokes stretched out over too many videos, temporal anomalies and a dog eating ice cream. If my time on this earth is truly up then I can pass over a happy man.

    Good luck everyone for the final draw.

    *raises a shaky hand and beckons* @VeryPC come closer. Closer. I have a message just for you. *cough* *whisper* A... PS4... might make me feel... a little... better *slump*

    *opens an eye to gauge reduction*
    *slump*

    It's amazing what a personable approach can do. We've dealt with a lot of suppliers, and whilst we've found the majority ok or good to deal with, I've never found someone so *human* - so much one of us. No crappy scripts for them to stick to on sales patter or after-sales, the one problem we had dealt with very well indeed. Let's just hope that (and the shameless plugs and prizedraws ) stick around as these guys grow.
