Were Eurobyte a public company I would be buying shares as I find Mario to be forthright in his advice and absolutely down to earth in his dealings with me as the client. He offers alternatives, if cost is likely to be a factor, and gives very common-sense reasons in support of his preferred option.
In terms of date of birth I could be Mario's oldest client although I was introduced to him as recently as three or four years ago when my pride and joy, my second-hand (and first) computer died in harness, in spite of the best endeavours of friends, all enthusiastic amateurs, to keep it alive. My second second-hand computer also, after a time, appeared to be approaching death's door when a couple of more-realistic friends from Hunters Hill put me in touch with Mario. That was a great day !!
My present "set-up" I bought through Mario and it works superbly (when I let it). Should problems arise that require the attention of the expert, Mario is available within a reasonable time ! He keeps his appointments, often to the minute; he gets on with the job (outlining what he is doing along the way) and he charges what can only be described as a very reasonable fee. Mario is an enthusiast in the best sense of the term, and he is also a very good teacher, whether he realizes it or not.
I am glad he is "my I.T. man" and I wish Eurobyte every success in the future.
