Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone else is able to contact lordsmurf in any other way besides email/DMs. I know he mentioned some health issues, and his last communication to me was 11/3, when he said he'd have stuff ready for me on 11/7. Sent 2 follow up e-mails with no response. He never sent anything that would indicate he'd be unavailable for communication, and while his communication is sometimes delayed, this was much more than usual, especially with a date stated, so just wanted to make sure he was OK!

I've been wondering the same. Last I heard from him was 3 weeks ago re: an order he was planning to prepare for me that week. I was planning to send a followup message today but I just saw your post. Hope he's alright.

I'm here.

Working through everything right now, good progress. Replying back to many emails/PMs today and tomorrow, shipping stuff again this week.

But you are correct, I've not been at a keyboard much lately, hand pain, about half better now, tolerable to use.

Glad to hear you're ok LS. I sent emails/PMs in the past month but didn't hear back. If you could please send me an email/PM with an update on my JVC VCR and AIW system, it would be really appreciated.

Thanks.

Glad that you are beginning to get back at it.

Could you let me know where my workflow is at? Haven't heard from you, so if you are replying again I'd love to be on the list.

I'm finally caught up, and have several items ready to send Monday.

Anybody owed anything should expect emails this weekend.

Good news. I just got an email from Lord Smurf. Nothing shipped yet but he's working on it.

More good news. I got another email from Lord Smurf today saying that my VCR is ready and will be shipped this week.

Aside from some requested holds, and a few system builds, everything should be shipping to everybody this week.

And to all, thanks for your patience. It is appreciated. There was just a string of bad luck, bad events, and trying to manage it all led to a downturn in my health. I've clawed back over the weeks and months, and it's finally decent for me again. Life with MS can be full of unknowns, ups and downs.

The year started bad, got worse, but I'm hoping for a good ending.

More than half of the packages were sent today.

The rest go Saturday and Monday.

You'll be contacted when your packages is sent or ready.

-- merged --

More sent today, as planned.

This is my final update here.

I've send gear out weekly since early Nov, and have now cleared out the main backlog, as well as timely sent anything new. Best of all, I have my studio back, it's no longer a warehouse, or a VCR graveyard, or where a TBC barfed up.

The few remaining items are now complex: system builds, TBC refurbs and mods. Those are finishing up now, I'll be getting with you soon as those complete.

I still need to email/PM tracking data for the last batch. If you're NOT getting a system build, or a TBC refurb, and have not gotten tracking, email/PM me on Monday night. No sooner. Preferably email.

Again, thanks to all. Year started bad, got worse, but seems to hopefully be ending well.

This message will be merged later, thread archived.
