Much of today was spent expanding the FXhome offices, doubling our floor space to accomodate all the new team members in a more logical setup. For the first time we've been able to set up distinct offices for the software team, the web devs and the operations/comms team. Software lead Hendo also has his own office in a distant part of the complex, which is where we like to keep him.

While these changes will result in greater efficiency, it has of course meant that we've been offline for most of the day. As such, if you've sent in a support ticket or had any other problems getting in touch today please be patient and we'll get back to you as soon as we can - which should be tomorrow. Thanks for your understanding!

I'm convinced you guys just like moving and cake, and that all these changes are arbitrary. wink

No kidding. Why don't you guys just pack everything into a fleet of vans and travel the English countryside while running the company? FxHome seems to be a very... Mobile operation...
But seriously, congrats guys. It's so fun watching your continued success.

Heh, you might be onto something there. We definitely look for any excuse to have cake. In fact, we haven't had any for a few weeks now, we'll have to look into that.

There was one thought to have a large yacht of some sort with offices and apartments built into it. That way we could work during the day, then afterwards go up on deck to see where the captain had taken us for the evening's festivities.

"Ah, Monte Carlo today, is it? Marvellous!"

We're going to have to make a bit more money first, though. razz

But seriously, congrats guys. It's so fun watching your continued success.
Thanks! Obviously we couldn't do it without support from you guys, so we're very grateful. We've got some amazing stuff planned for the near future and the not-quite-so-near future, so hopefully we'll continue to come up with cool things for you all. smile

That is a vicious rumour which I can categorically confirm.

I actually don't like cake... how do you feel about that FXhome? For my birthday a couple of years ago my friend said she would make me a cake, I said no, get me something I'll enjoy. So she got me some Lucozade, which I had the man at the bar use to make a shandy. That's how much I don't like cake. Think about that FXhome, some people are almost anti cake, time to take off those cake tinted glasses and take a long hard look at the real world.
