you on the wiard yahoo list? there was some explanation there but only hints that things might be getting final

out of interest - what did you order?

that's pretty bad both for you and for Grant - i hope he is ok - things on the wiard list have seemed a bit out of sorts recently as indexofmetals said. i don't suppose there's much point me contacting him about an order now :(

i just hope he will be ok - the modules are nice but you cannot compare that to a man's health

definitely muff, I think everybody wants Grant to put his health first

this is probably why I never heard back from him about increasing my order

yeah i only had a noise ring and borg on order. i'm guessing there are a few disappointed people with LARGE orders around.

i'd rather he was ok than me have 2 modules though

he said to contact him in 3 months or so and see what's happening.

I didnt realise Geoff became ill?
I was in contact with him a couple years ago. He stopped responding to emails, and I was advised not to deal with him by someone selling one of his systems on eBay.

Sad news. Hope Grant recovers well.

I don't know if there has been any specific and terrible health issue for Grant as much as he is worn thin.

I could be wrong but I know he hates rumors.

i hate the idea of rumors as well and talking about people's personal issues makes here makes me pretty uncomfortable.

I think the health comments are a response to the message in Scozbor's initial post in this thread. That's actually the first I've heard about possible health problems.

However, personally, if I had the number of orders Grant has piling up, the stress alone would be enough of a health issue for me. I really hope he can balance all the things in his life - which is a big part of health, mental and phyical health are very much the same thing as I myself have learned time and time again.

anybody else receive an email from Grant? From his email on this list it sounded like he was going to be emailing each customer to discuss their outstanding order, maybe he's got a lot to get through.
