Dontronics was an Australian Internet based Electronics and
micro-controller store run by Don McKenzie, that ceased business on
the 30th-June-2018. At 75 years of age, it really got beyond me, as
I had attempted to re-invent myself several times and simply threw
good money away. After being in business since 1964, I had to shut
down as my two daughters (Sharon and Penny) don't have an
electronics background, and have other business interests they wish
to pursue. Both daughters did all of the sales in recent years.
I believe I was the second company on the web selling Electronic
kits, beaten only by my friend Peter Crowcroft (DIY Electronics HK),
who passed away in 2006. I know I pioneered a lot of new Internet
concepts such as online payments that are commonplace today.
The Commonwealth Bank of Australia treated me like an alien
initially. I assisted the Australian Tax Office with the
introduction of the GST tax laws, as they had no idea what the web
was about, and didn't comprehend the variety of global transactions
that could be done.
A big thank you to everyone that supported Dontronics.
However I notice there are still many visitors to the site, so I
felt the need to do two things.
1) Let visitors know why they have reached a site that no longer
exists in the form that they were expecting.
2) Take advantage of these visitors by directing them to my two
daughter's web sites.
