I am not going to name any names, but around here, that is some might big boots to fill! But just in case, I have got you covered.


Damn! And just when I thought I actually had an edge on something. It sure as hell isn't taking pictures as I'm light years behind the lot of you.

Oh well, one can dare to dream. At least it's more likely to be true over Pentax unveiling their Full Frame..

You guys should go join up with Gearslutz.. that forum is probably the biggest forum anywhere, let alone for music.

Sorry....Already am subscribed, along with The Gear Page, the FDP Forum, and a few more. It's part of my job to field questions about the frenzy people work themselves up to when talking guitars, basses, amps, etc....

This is supposed to be my sanctuary away from all of that, but I ended up bringing it with me.....Yikes....Okay, from this point on, I'll stick to Propane and Propane Accessories....And photography.

So he meant next week? You think after such a price hike they would say something. That's pretty awful relations handling.

What should've happened, as has been mentioned before or in other threads - new features added, better warranty, silver color, etc, coupled with the price increase.

Instead, we had no changes that justified the incredible price increase, and a (broken) promise that we would get an explanation early this week.

I can understand why people are pissed.

Bonjour,

"Pissed" ... maybe, getting closer and closer to that stage.

"Frustrated" ... definitely, because "crap" like this just gets old ... best to keep one's hands off the keyboard as opposed to stirring up a possible sh*t storm by writing promises that cannot (or will not) be honored = super backfire PR ... like we wouldn't notice, didn't care or couldn't count the days.

It was written ... "hopefully early next week" - well, that's come and gone ... Maybe "hopefully in two weeks" ... or maybe "hopefully in three weeks" ... or maybe "hopefully in four weeks" ... or maybe "hopefully in five weeks" ... or maybe "hopefully in six weeks" ... or maybe "hopefully in seven weeks" ... or maybe "hopefully in n + x weeks", etc.

Allez et bon courage, John le "Grumpy" Frog
