Kramer’s favourite local computer supplier, Cougar Computers, has closed down. Their site (http://www.cougar.com.au/) now only has their obituary which I’ve reproduced below, summarising their history as well as listing who they recommend you look to now they are gone.
After 9 years Cougar Computers closed its doors for the last time on Friday 16 December, 2005.
The staff and owners express their gratitude to all Cougar customers who gave the business a reason to exist. Since 1997 Cougar provided products and services to over 17,000 customers, built and sold over 18,000 computer systems, and employed a total of over 50 staff.
It is with some sadness that the owners of the business have ceased Cougar trading, and they are now pursuing other interests.
