Good on Orcon :)

Not many ISP's provide free email addy's and websites to any NZ'er regardless of whether they are a Orcon customer or not. They deserve some kudos.

I'm not a Orcon customer either.

Yes they are the awesome, but still sounds like advertising :p

Nah, it's not advertising zulu. I just read it in some business mail today and knowing that many PF1'ers are satisfied clients of Orcon I thought they might like to know how their favourite ISP was doing in the broader business community.

It is a good news story, that's all.

> Er, I knew this about a month ago, how old is this news?

It came in a monthly publication so probably missed their copy deadline for last month. Pity you didn't post it back then agent, but it's not really that important. It is just a general interest matter for people who use Orcon and dissemination is not time critical. PCW didn't publish it either, but it may turn up in the October issue.

Good news is good news whenever you hear it.

Ah, well I didn't actually know the name of the award they won, all I knew was that Orcon had received some business award from Westpac.
