Square Group on New Oxfnord St.  Good people.  My only niggle is that
when they did a disk upgrade for me, promising to copy all my data and
settings across to the new one, they missed out important things like my
crontabs and apache config.  But then, I could restore them from backups
so didn't care much.

I also like them because if you buy their version of Applecare they do
on-site servicing, which Apple apparently no longer offer.

    You are so cynical.  And by "cynical", of course, I mean "correct".
