Thanks Eric for your information,

I have worked with o3b networks former CEO Greg Wyler while he was my CEO
back in 2005, it is no doubt that his company is rocking, he is so
inspiring, I like his reasoning and I also learnt a lot from him.

He could always tell me that things seem difficult at the beginning and as
time goes by, they end up being easy, easy, easy.

Thanks again,
