Here are my comments:
- Cyclades is not in trouble at all. We're actually in very good shape and
our revenues are going up, despite the current economic downturn.
- If Sangoma did say that, it would be interesting to know who exactly did
it and where this person got this info, just so that we can better
understand what's going on. Michael, if you have any info regarding
this, you may contact me off-list (or on-list if you wish -- I just
don't think it's appropriate).
- Maybe it was harder to get specific people on the phone here at Cyclades
because several people from our staff are out of the office at Comdex.
However, one should surely be able to leave a msg in the Sales Dept.'s
voice mail or talk to the receptionist, if one wishes (and tries) to do
so. I checked with our main receptionist and with the person who checks
the Sales Dept.'s voice mail, and there were no msgs / calls from
- I think (personal opinion) that one should try a little harder to check
his/her facts before posting such a msg to a public mailing list, as
that may have unexpected / bad effects. YMMV.
I hope this clarifies / clears up any rumors or misunderstandings that may
have appeared after Michael's msg. If you wish to further discuss this
issue, please contact me off-list to prevent more off-topic traffic from
getting into the list.
Thanks for your attention, and sorry for this "intrusion".
