Over the past 6 months my life has been very busy with Work and Family issues. As some may not know and or care I work full time and normally over 60 hours a week. I also travel for a living and have already flown over 40 flights for the year, 127 last year. Additionally since December I have had several close relatives in the Hospital. One who Fell, double tapped his skull on concrete, on Christmas Day and now due to this injury will not be with us for much longer. My cousin, three weeks ago, cut 4 of his fingers off. Another family member had bronchitis and liquid around his heart. Thankfully is finally recovering.

That said anyone who contacts me needs to respect if I do not drop everything for them. This will not be tolerated by myself, place of employment or any other place. There is no excuse for this behavior and do not expect a response.

This is a wonderful hobby and nothing more. Please remember that and lets continue to make this fun.

  1. It sucks that you feel like you have to explain this to internet strangers — for every person giving you hard time there are 100 that appreciate everything you’ve done.

  2. Andrew…Don’t know if you remember me but you tried to build a system for me in December/January but we discovered that TB header wasnt there for matx boards. Anyway, you were so gracious through that process and I had no idea so much craziness was going on in your life. Just want to thank you for all you do for this community and you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. You only have one health, one family, and they should always come in the first place. All the rest is “nice to have”.

  4. I also want to send a BIG thank you for your help and creating this website. Even though you haven’t diagnosed any specific problems I had in the past, without this site and your tireless work helping others, I never would have figured things out on my own. This and your previous site has kept me up and running over 3-4 years now.

  5. Hey Andrew hope you can get through everything ok! Family and your own health/sanity must come first. As obsessive as some people get over this stuff, the world won’t stop turning if you can’t reply to them. Anyone else considering giving Andrew a hard time over this, perhaps try putting in the hard work to learn how to do it yourself if it’s so absolutely important to you.

    The rest of us are always grateful for your support Andrew!

  6. many thanks man, I hope your family and friends get better.

  7. Sorry to hear that. I’ve gotten help from you both paid and just by reading your blog for free. It’s an incredible resource that many folks would be helpless without. Sad some folks just don’t get it. I’m very appreciative of what you have put together!
