I've had many experiences, but I'll mention the last :

I saw a processor in Sedgefield that I wanted and, as I didn't know the seller, asked a member to assist. Stereosane was near and I transferred the money to him. He then met gentleman and collected the unit, as well as couriered it up for me.

Thanks again - sale wouldn't have happened otherwise !

I also had awesome interactions with CAD and Dolby.
They both offered their time and service even though there was nothing in it for them.

CAD offered to courier equipment to me via a family member and even tho said equipment was sold it was still a genuinely awesome gesture.

Dolby kept an eye out  :o for me when I was looking for a certain piece of kit and informed when it became available.

Very rare to find help like this, so thanks to these helpful and kind gentleman

Brothers I am in your debt, if there is anything I can do for you, let me know

Many thanks to Bizkit (Morne) for going out of his way to deliver some very big items (too big to load on my Bantam bakkie). Not a short trip either, I'd guess at least 40kms round-trip.  :dop:

Thanks Wolla for the awesome help with trying to sort me over the phone with loading RockBox into the early hours of the morning. Even my own son would have given up, but you stuck in there and at your own cost. What more could a fellow forumite ask for more, you are a trooper!

My sincere gratitude and appreciation, Meneer.

A big thank you goes to Aaron for the warm welcome to his home. Apart from the lovely kit(s), I got a chance to listen to Private Investigations and all that was missing was the tag and ticket to the concert (how lively and amazing the sound was).
got home with good kit that i got as freebies :thumbs:... many thanks for that
Again, thanks for sharing design ideas got me thinking about my plans.  :dop:

Thanks for the kind words Thabo - Again I am sorry my time was short. Please feel free to pop in when you make your next trip down to SA.
I am so pleased the goodies are being put to good use.
