Recommendations from past and current clients:
"Steve Rogers of The Difference Engine has been looking after my computer - in fact a succession of computers - for the past seven years and I wouldn't dream of letting anybody else touch them. What I appreciate about Steve's work is that he does exactly what I ask him to do and nothing else. I.e., no unnecessary extras. What's more, he explains everything in terms that the non-technical minded can understand and I assure you that if I can understand it, anybody can!"
Ishvara d'Angelo (artist & author) www.dawndancer.co.uk
"Steve has been my main computer adviser/trouble shooter for many years. His knowledge and expertise has saved me ££s as well as time. I can strongly recommend him for being reliable and very professional."
Rob Long, Education Works (educational consultancy) www.roblong.co.uk
"Thank you for coming so promptly to sort-out my Mac and for the help in configuring it to my own requirements. It is running like a dream and with the addition of the extra Memory you recommended the speed is much faster than anything I have experienced before. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone using Mac systems."
Jim Brown (photographer & graphic designer)
"Difference Engine got us started on the web with a great value, first design for a basic web page. Steve helped us choose an ISP, set up our domain name registration and got us up and running quickly and efficiently. A friendly, easy to use service." Dr Jon Croose, when Artistic Director of Means of Production theatre workshops
"For over 10 years The Difference Engine managed our media output, from Web design & catalogues to point of sale products. Their professional and cost effective service has been invaluable to the growth and success of our business."
Liam Fraser, Earl's Performance Products UK Ltd (motorsport supplier)
"We enjoyed working with Steve, his creativity and knowledge made the process a pleasure."
Carol Asuray, Sea Gypsies (performance group)
"I have called on Steve Rogers' effective and fast technical support for a number of years. Not only is Steve’s technical ability and 'know how' reliable, his consistently calm and cheerful attitude is also. This is a bonus as any loss of faith in self, computer or humour (which anyone dependent on computers in their work will know can be pushed to the edge) is restored."
