Er - at the risk of sounding a bit cliched :
Ron isnt the kind of guy to just cut & run , fellas .
If he hasn't been in contact , then I'm sure that there is a damn good reason for it .
Don't forget that the Toulouse job came up in quite a hurry , that he had to organise his family visits , source accommodation etc .
Keep the 155 faith !
Shiney - have the PMs been picked up , or are they still in your outbox ?
I have that impression of Ron - that he is genuine and an enthusiast, with nothing to suggest he is out to rip anyone off.
My PMs have not been read, and remain in the Outbox. But surely he has internet again?! Possibly not, but internet access is available in homes, work, on the streets. I had been polite and understanding with all my PMs, and was contacting him every 2-3 weeks, but the last two are unread. He either has no internet, or sees who its from and is not reading them.
Early on, he said he had a tracking number to give me, but never followed-up; which was why I PMed again, to ask for the tracking number.
*sigh* I hope he's ok, but it's frustrating. Not just the $$, but the 'not knowing' and because the part is very hard to find, hence a lot of disappointment.
