That's odd. I just looked at them a few days ago. Now they're gone. Maybe he forgot to pay his web hosting bill?

Even a delivery guarantee would be worthless (to me) from someone like that. 4 years from now you may be posting "I don't understand... he's got my money and my 2600 torn apart on a bench and now he won't anwer any of my emails... what do I do???"

The domain doesn't expire until January. The DNS was changed on September 23rd and again last Thursday.

The WHOIS lists a phone number of (610) 694-8886, though no clue if that's current or old.

You could try contacting his wife. I believe she works with him, so it's not completely inappropriate.

Perhaps he is just hanging out with Hans Zimmer?

Thank you SOOOOOO much. Any further info and avenues of communication is very helpful.

I left a handful of voicemails and contacted his twitter and her facebook account. FINGERS CROSSED!!! I will let you know how it transpires.

My last feedback I got from him was an email in July saying:

I have your Arp on my bench and it is about halfway finished. I was called away because my mom is really sick. I will have it for you by the end of August latest.

I just got off the phone with Phil Cirocco. He apologized for the delay in his call. He just got out of the hospital and is getting back to business. He stated that during his time in the hospital, his website provider shut down his website which was a snafu on their part.

Phil stated that my Arp would be done soon. I will keep you updated.

THANK YOU so much for everyone that helped me during my "freak out" moment when I didn't know what was going on. You guys are the best.

Cheers.

I have been thinking of getting my 2600 worked on.
How did it go ? Do you have it back ?
What mods did you decide on and how do you like them?
