Computerworld’s head office is in Auckland’s central business district so we’ve had to relocate most of our staff and services while power is restored to the city. But we’ll still be publishing as usual, along with other publications from IDG.
Our main phone line (0-9-377 9902) and fax line (0-9-377 4604) have been diverted to the Number One Services call centre where IDG staff are available to answer callers’ enquiries and direct them to relevant staff. However, direct-dial numbers, voicemail and toll-free lines won’t be fully operational and some staff have only infrequent access to their normal email.
Subscribers may experience a short delay before changes and amendments to their subscriptions can be effected, so we ask for your patience over the next week or two while we get back to normal. Registrations for Computerworld Expo, which runs in Auckland from March 31 to April 2, will continue to be processed and you can call either IDG’s main phone number or the toll-free line, 0800-IDGEXPO (0800 434 3976). The additional expo and seminar information on the @IDG Web site (www.idg.co.nz) and automated FreeFax system may not be available at all times since both servers are housed in the city.
These temporary arrangements also apply to Computerworld’s sister publications PC World, Network World, MTB, Computer Buyer and New Zealand Reseller News.
Our Wellington office is unaffected. Phone 0-4-384 9664, fax 0-4-384 2131, or address to level 4, Southmark House, 203 Willis Street.
• Computerworld is being brought to you this week from a makeshift office in a garage in Newmarket. Production problems have affected some of our pages, but we have done our best to ensure you continue to get the week’s top news.
