True too. But Blake has a 100% legit beef IMO.
My personal dealings with Roger predate this drivepack thing, but what I
did buy from him arrived in a reasonable time frame considering he was
assembling the stuff on his kitchen table while trying to raise (I think) 3
smaller children on a UPS local delivery drivers income.
But that doesn't excuse that it appears he obviously has outstanding, paid
for orders that haven't been delivered, or refunded when the refund was
So Blake chooses to make the rest of us on this list aware of the
situation. Shrug. Patience is also something that I would have a shortage
of by now too.
So the rest of us who don't have a dog in this fight, should sit back and
observe for future reference, giving it a rest unless you have actual facts
to offer that have not yet been related.
In the meantime, and for os9/Nitros9, the drivewire4 kit is free except for
the cable parts, and it works well for me.
