Default I am retiring from group buys !

Dear Forum Family and Friends,


I have been involved in one sort of a group buy or another for quite some time now - and am weary of the whole process. I had a phone call last night at 11:30pm from an "anonymous" source that was the proverbial straw that broke the camels' back. That phone call woke me, and my entire family, which is just plain rude as hell. Not to mention the lack of profits, etc.
{Please pardon my whining}

I currently have approximately 80 sony 16X DVD burner type diodes left to sell off, and am still accepting orders for the Sentorches until Wednesday {10-17-2007} evening.

If you want any Sentorches, this is the absolute LAST chance for them from me - ever.

If you want any GB diodes, or Aixiz modules, or LM317 current regulator kits, this is the last opportunity as well. Once I sell off the remaining stock of diodes, I am taking the site down permanently. I may bring it up to list some small items from time to time, but nothing of the group buy magnitude.

As far as the Sentorches go - the warranty is still in effect, and I have every intention of providing support at least until the warranty period is over with :-)

Of course, I may change my mind at some later point in time, but I can tell you honestly, it will be quite a ways off in the future, I am sure. I am not retiring from the forum, just from conducting group buys. I thank everyone for your support during these times, your understanding when the Sentorch buy turned into an epic battle, and your offers of financial support - you all are the best there is, no doubt in my mind ever !

Thanks again for all the support, and great times with the group buys - and if you were the one that called me last night, do NOT tell me, as I will most likely be even more pissed off than I already am.

Sorry to hear that!

But the again, i can understand how these things can drive you crazy, especially if people start calling you out of bed! I guess you'll get rid of the last diodes and things soon enough.

Perhaps it's possible to hard the contacts for buying them down to someone willing to continue?

Sorry to hear that, even though I've never participated in any of your GB, I think its safe to say that you did a fantastic job. So you have every right to be pissed off, I know I would.

Thank you very much for the GB's you have done Greg, I would not have built any of my displays for halloween if it were not for you.

I have e-mailed you to say that my sen-torch arrived safe and sound, it was worth the wait!

Sorry to hear this, I feel your pain. All that work, all the hours for very little in return, then there are those who have no clue, that push beyond the limits of a normal transaction.

I Thank You for you hard work, I certainly will miss your Group Buys, I hope someone else steps up to the plate.

Bummer -- Your GB's are part of what makes this forum great. This re-enforces why I won't try to run a GB. I wouldn't take it either.

Thanks for all the work --

Mike

Yup, it is a bummer Greg but I don't blame you. You have been very supportive of every GB I have participated in and I am going to miss them. I simply can't thank you enough for everything you have done for me, both in and out of GB's. I am happy you are not retiring from the forum...I would be really lost then.

Well Greg, I appreciate all the effort you have put in to the GBs. I understand your frustration, however, I did one small GB on CPF and it was a lot of effort. Cheers,

I'm sorry to hear that you've decided to stop, but I don't blame you for it. After dealing with so many problem people, I don't think anyone would be able to keep going. Thank you for all your time and hard work. Even if it's not said often enough, I'm sure everyone is grateful for it.

What a horrible thing to happen. :-/

I am very saddened to hear this SenKat. Your GB's have been a vital part of LPF, and your efforts have not gone unappreciated or admired by many.

We all thank you, me especially, for what you continue to do for this forum.
