By David L. - 01 Jan 09
Syeve reacted at very short notice on News Eve, fitting in a job for me that was extremely important to me and my Business. The System crash tookout my main Business PC, and from my end of life it was crisis time in that it needed rapid fixing. It turned out nor to be a run of the mill crash in some respects, but Steve took it in his stride, very flexible and knowledgeable on the topic. Its clear he has a solid genuinely Professional background, not a home grown enthusiast. A Gent, and no ladies on their own during a house call to do a PC fix need have any concerns. A good man who I would recommend to anyone.
