Thanks :) This will provide another source for pre-fab CQC hardware solutions besides our boxes, which some folks find a little pricey. So they'll have another channel to consider now as well. Since we are primarily interested in moving software, we are happy to have other hardware platform outlets for the product. Our own branded boxes will still be available as well of course.
Congratulations Dean! I did just a little reading on the company and it seems like a good one. I hope there are many more successes for you and CQC....
