philosiblog.wordpress.com - I am a thinker, spending time examining short twitter quotes in greater detail on my blog.
Introduction
I'm an engineer by schooling and nerd of some repute. Old enough to have dabbled with tubes, young enough to play with computers.

As a recreational thinker, I decided to try to make some sense of all the twitter quotes zipping around the internet, and so Philosiblog was born.

The quality was quite impressive. They sent someone out when my A/C unit died, and he confirmed the proper size for the unit, and helped us find a basic model that met our needs. With the order confirmed, they left an indoor unit to help keep us sane while the replacement was scheduled. In short order, 3 guys showed up and in less time than they had scheduled, removed the old equipment and installed the new equipment. They were professional and courteous. All told, it was as pleasant an experience as one can have in June without A/C! Thanks again for the prompt response and excellent service!
