As 2011 draws to a close and we all look to see just where we put that 2012 calendar, our thoughts go out to everyone who has contributed to making Remote Central such a great place to be for the past year.

This includes our valued advertisers, without whom we would not be here (support those that support RC!); all of our volunteer forum moderators who do a fantastic job fighting spam and maintaining the peace; the great folks at who keep our server running in tip-top shape and always available; plus the custom installation and control community as a whole – everyone who takes the time to interact by sharing their knowledge, wit, files (thanks djy!)... or even just their two cents!

Please accept my heartfelt appreciation – and all the best for the coming year!

- Daniel &
