905 N Fifth St
« on: June 02, 2017, 07:11:48 pm »

Our new address isn't a lot different from our old one -- 125 N First St.  It even has the same zip code: 55401.

We were in that old (1884) building a very long time.  At least I was.  1979 to 2017.  Bob was there almost as long.  Most of the rest of us were there more than a decade.

We moved because the neighborhood was getting a little too plush, and also because it was easier to sell it than to take the phone calls asking about it buying it.  It was a great old building, but we've moved on.

We finished moving into the new space a couple of weeks ago.  We'll be unpacking boxes for a long time.

The building has 12,000 square feet.  About 1200 square meters.  JRiver occupies about 15% of that, so there is a lot of space to rent.  It's been divided and subdivided and fussed over for the last 5 months.  It's starting to be occupied now. 

Three of the spaces are small stores.  Each of them will have a storefront made of glass with a door in the center.  The openings were originally dock doors when the building was built by a produce business in 1927.

The first storefront went in yesterday.  The others will be installed next week.

JRiver is to the right of the storefronts.  I'll post some pictures later.

FYI - The website still has the old address.  Good thing I checked as the next batch of chickens are due to ship!

...I'm glad I'm leaving the internal distribution to the team to you!  Image if I tried to ship to more than one address.   ::)
 Please pass on my thanks to the entire MC team for the work done this year.  It has been a very good one from my perspective for the work either already delivered or currently being worked on expanding features for my areas of interest:
- Video in general (and BD in particular)
- TV
- DLNA / Sync
& general fixs

I know that you mostly hear about complaints of stuff not working, or pet features not implemented... but I tip my hat to MC.  For a small team, the output is consistently high in quality and quantity.  It is also rare to find a commercial product where those that are involved in the development also directly interact (pun intended) with your users.  I look forward to see what 2018 brings.
