2013-12-09. The year is coming to an end. Things have quieted down: Less press releases and less news reach our email account. But still, we have a lot of information that hasn't been double-checked, which we will edit and publish in the remaining days of the year.
We will close our office from December 23 to New Year's Day.
We hope that we have managed to provide interesting news to you in the last year. We are always open for suggestions and would appreciate it if you shared your needs and requests with us. So, if you want to put something on the wish list, please don't hesitate to send us an email.
