Look after yourself buddy and enjoy the family and friends. Take care.

Glad you’re feeling better, and definitely glad that you know to prioritize your health & family over the forum.

Merry Christmas!!! .. Smile

It was good to find out through the ‘grapevine’ a couple of weeks ago that you were not dead. Hope you can get healed up & well soon. Thumbs Up

As has already been said by others…. probably a waste of your time trying to catch up with your GT backlog.

TA, JasonWW, & others stepped up and handled it superbly.

Things are pretty much going smooth as glass on the BLF end of things, as well as the LT end also.

Just waiting on shipping after LT redoes a couple of minor issues found in a QC check.

Glad you’re still alive The Miller! Was worried about you and discussed your disappearance numerous times with my family. Take care of yourself and look forward to your future posts. You truly are an important part of BLF. Merry Christmas!

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

So glad you are doing ok TM. I honestly have no idea how you can deal with your life and all the stuff from blf projects. I’m glad your back but your health, family, and livelihood are all more important than these volunteer projects. I think your absence honestly has made it all too clear what you go through daily on these projects. I don’t see how you keep up and not go insane with the repetitive minutiae that never ends. I am happy to see that we haven’t driven you away with our insanity. Merry Christmas and God Bless

I’m glad to hear you’re starting to feel better. Take things slow though, okay? No sense in pushing yourself too hard and getting sick again.

The Miller is back! Welcome and a Merry Christmas.
Piece of advice from one Wim to another:

Wandel eens wat meer
met De Heer
aan uw zijde.

For those who were born and raised above sea-level:
Gooxxx Transxxxx will take care of the text,
but not of the message (in 128 bit binary code).
Hint: the sixth word is the key. Gni-gni-gni.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

I feel you Miller, I never get sick but have had a fever the last few days myself, most of the time I floating between reality and trying to figure out how to make the pain stop with brief moments of clarity mixed in.

Luckily I am on the mend now, just trying to take things easy till I am 100%.

Although in the future I think using a team account for all the OP’s for new threads would be a good idea, that way the whole team can edit the OP should someone go MIA.

As others said, no reason for you to read all the thousands of posts and PM’s for that matter. We can catch you up pretty quickly, basically everything is pretty much done and the lights have started shipping.

As you saw, although the teams shipped before the QC checked found an issue with the fuse in the firmware, so your driver will need to be reflashed for 100% functionality and the switch cover is black instead of transparent. These were fixed before any others were shipped.

168 lights shipped out on Saturday with more planned to ship later this week. We have a total of over ~800+ orders last I checked.

I am also very happy with the production light, the ano is better and the reflector doesn’t have the specs as they promised.

Welcome back The Miller, and Merry Christmas too!
We’ve been worried about your well being.
Take it easy. Everything is mostly under control it seems, thanks to some very dedicated and patient members.
