: : exactly right here, but that's just MY opinion...

: : No, they're new. I sent them an e-mail and they assured me

: : Tell me what you think.

: I visited the web site, "" and have to say that even though, the graphics were impressive, as were the prices, that's where my excitement stopped. For instance, the company/guy/whatever refuses to give a customer service number so he "doesn't have to have a bunch of guys running around answering phones all the time". Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

The company/guy/whatever doesn't state it/he/whatever is a member of the BBB or any other industry or trade organizations, either. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
