X3 doesn’t mention what year, so he is probably right.

My apologies to the Forum for my recent posts here. I was out of order. I can’t make any excuses, except that it has been a very bad few weeks for me.

I have attempted to delete them, but the forum has been playing up with database errors. When it settles, I will do so.

Hoping that this new post gets through.

Once again, my apologies to all.

Let’s just move forward, anticipating the release of this new light. It has been a long time, and it looks light it may finally be happening, and sooner than later.
I hope whatever has been bad in the past few weeks for you gets better. Bad times come, and they go too.

Whelp, after a couple weeks of deliberation, I’ve caved like so many others.

I’m in for one! Don’t mind waiting for the LH351Ds either.

IMO your last few comments in the thread were completely reasonable, and I agree with them for the most part.

I thought it was pretty close 8 months ago… and 5 months ago… and 2 months ago. It looks like it’s pretty close now, but I really can’t say for sure. I just hope things get straightened out soon so we can all get a shiny new thing and move on.

It also occurs to me I should probably sign up for some extras so I can gift them. I never got around to doing that, and if it turns out how I’m hoping, I’ll want to send them to a bunch of people.

Yep, hopefully soon. But we really have not made the official 2 year mark from when the OP was posted on ‘Thu, 05/04/2017 – 06:50…… #1’.

There is time to spare…… Big Smile .. Wink

Please add me to the list for a third light.

I’m already on the list for two, I would like a total of three.

Funny thing, this group buy has been going on so long, one day about 6 months ago after reading updates I pondered whether I had ever signed up.
Turns out I am number 7 & 8 on the list and number 1 & 2 is long gone so I guess we’re at the front of the bus Smile

Flashlight looks good in form and hopefully will be worth the wait.
Thanks to all who have hung in there with development.
Later,

Keith

People keep asking about that, so I should set something up. I looked around at the various tools available, and two seem worth trying: Patreon and Ko-fi.

  • Patreon is the most popular, and it works using a subscription model. This generally works out best for the creator, as it makes things regular and mostly predictable. Patreon also works out any payment issues without the creator having to be involved. However, not everyone wants to do recurring donations. And Patreon heavily emphasizes exclusive subscriber-only content or services, but I’m trying to make sure things are available to everyone. It’s a somewhat awkward fit, but probably still worth trying.
  • Ko-fi (“coffee”) is more focused on one-time donations, like a tip jar. It also offers recurring donations for creators who pay a monthly fee. It’s far less popular than Patreon, but it seems like a better fit overall. The main drawback is it doesn’t have any form of chargeback protection, so fake donations are a risk. People have been known to do that on purpose just to hurt someone.

So… maybe I should make an account on one or both?

Paypal would be a secure way to make a one-time donation, but there may be fees involved. See https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/paypal-fees. In the US however, from one PayPal account to another, there doesn't appear to be any fees - and it is easy for the recipient to set up. This would work fine for me, and you may want to consider this as an option. Thanks!

Don’t mind Sharpie Tom Tom. He just really likes to complain and argue. Even got banned for it, but he eventually made a new account. He has been stirring up trouble on BLF for three years now, since around the end of 2015.

Thanks for the public “outing” TK Sad Not.

For the record, and to correct your recollection, as Sharpie I eventually decided to withdraw from here, for a build-up of reasons, and to take a long break.

I manually deleted all my posting history, which took some time (no other mechanism to do so). Finality. Then sb56637 closed that account, permanently.

It was my decision, my choice.

When I decided to re-engage as Tom Tom, for a fresh start, I informed several close contacts of the situation. Including you.

Those who needed to know, knew.

Others could guess. Several have. And if they are interested I confirm on PM. It’s never been a secret. But they have all respected my privacy. Except for you.

I do try to do more than just complain and argue. Critique yes, argue no.

You hide behind a login ID, so how is your privacy violated?
