"Granville Technology Group Ltd, owner of computer brands Time and Tiny, has gone into administration and most of its 1,600 staff are likely to lose their jobs.

Grant Thornton is handling the wind-up or possible sale of the Burnley-based firm. The news follows weeks of speculation about the company's future."

That was 2005.  Hmm.. Why is it still listed in whois?  Didn't the Receiver wind it up or flog it off?

I remember them..  they were part of the Time computer group which I thought went into receivership years ago.  They seem to be using the same logo?

I also recall lots of complaints from purchasers of Time computers which came pre-installed with Supanet ISP software which was a right PITA to get rid of.

In fact it would appear they still are Supanet resellers -  from this page it says "TimeTalk is powered by Supanet".

I think all the information, so far discovered, is clearly pointing to that big flashing neon sign which says: Beware!  >:(
