Hi everyone,

Magic Smoke is my publisher, and just put out my new book last week. While all of the back-and-forth with typesetting and proofreading was going on, Tim was in the process of getting ready to move to a new town. So I wouldn't be surprised if it takes him a while to get unpacked and ready for DIY emails. I hate moving myself and can never face the piles to be packed and stuff to be cleaned.

I'm in the same boat as Robert here, only I've already paypaled Magic Smoke the money for the boards! If someone might be able to tell us how to contact him, that would be great. Thanks!

Well moving or not, I think Magic Smoke gone underground.

I ordered and paid for a bunch of PCBs and Tempcos 6 weeks ago and since an email that the PCB was late but under way I have not heard anything.

In the meantime I have received several other letters and packages from US so the post obviously work. I have also received the components for the PCBs from China despite the Chinese new year.

I have not received any package or tracking code and Tim does not answer my emails.

At this point I will be surprised if something, including Tim, will show up.

FWIW, I ordered 2 PCBs from a modular synth manufacturer last year (USA to Germany) and despite being shipped immediately, it took 5 1/2 weeks for this letter-size package to arrive.

I agree, if you accept a payment and advertise that "boards are in-stock and shipping," then you should probably also be able to let your customers know what's up via email... I wouldn't be sweating it so much were it not for the fact that I just can't seem to be able to get the "Birth of a Synth" foil working, and I need these 2206 instruments operational ASAP.

But what are we going to do? Raise a fuss with Paypal? I'm new to the DIY synth stuff, but it seems the community is all totally on the level. State Machine's already done me a solid, and everyone on here seems pretty cool and helpful. I guess we just have to wait... Wait... Wait... Wait... From Jameco: Wait... From Mouser: Wait... For the IC I forget to order last time: Wait... For the crimping tool only available online: Wait... Wait... Wait... Wait... Mad

EDIT: Speaking of which, if anyone has any fully running TH-102s, I'm definitely in the market.

Hello Everyone,

Not dead yet! I have moved lately, and while that's not a very good excuse, it has put me behind the eight ball on responding to and shipping customer orders. We'll be getting caught up in the next week and I'll be responding to everyone as soon as I can. We had to reorder some PCBs, but we have boards and parts in stock (except for the 'Cucamonga' VCLFO which is no longer stocked). Sorry again to make everybody wait, but we'll get you all caught up!

Tim (behind and behinder) Servo

This is my first message in electro-music, it is a pitty that I am gonna use it to complain about Tim, sorry guys.

Around the begginning of may of 2014 I got answer from Tim via Magic Smoke about a question I made him on Mankato's VCF PCBs availability. He said around 12th of may they should be in stock again, so I placed my order for 2 PCBs, since then, I haven't received any info about ordering status nor I have received any answer to 3 emails I sent him. In the last week I've even tried to send him a message through Facebook and opened a thread in Muffwiggler in order to find him, no answer !. I received some PMs from people that are supposed to be friends of him that told me that Tim is a nice person going through tough times.

I am sorry Tim, I don't know about your problems, I have mine too. Could you please be more serious about what you do? If you can't take your site seriously,then, please, don't get money from people, close it untill you are ready again. Is it so difficult to answer messages, is it really so difficult for you to spend 10 seconds of your life to write? Come on
