I know that this is the DIY forum not the talk about your personal life forum but I feel compelled to admit my mistakes to the people here that I have offended. After losing both my parents, my house, my business for a while I got a little crazy and a little angry. I was only drinking and smoking weed but I still think that was part of the problem not the solution. I am involved in a few different programs now that offer me the help I need with housing, counseling, staying sober and learning what it means to have normal human to human interactions. I have Asperger's syndrome and ADD. I also have a way of breaking promises or you might call it not finishing things. I admit my faults and I will do anything I can to build my future and to build healthy relationships. I am sitting in my new office today typing this from head quarters. I am the sober CEO. If there were any delays in shipping PCB's while I was homeless during december, they have all been sorted now. Some of the people I have burned will never forgive me, some of them will. I forgive everyone that I was mad at including myself. I have made the decision to remove myself from all forums until I have the cognitive social skills to overcome Asperger's syndrome and also the recovering addict skills needed to build healthy relationships. I will continue to provide fast shipping and excellent customer service for I will only display what is in stock and I will only sell what is in stock. I will not be doing any repairs in the coming year nor will I be building anything. for many reasons, I simply can not do that at this time and possibly I may never be able to operate that kind of business responsibly. I am still doing PCB design but I have more than enough clients providing me with more than enough work. My body of work exists in the form of 10,000 posts spread across 5 forums. most of the tutorials, shared experiences and original circuits are still out there. also out there is an honest record of every drunk rambling post where I was unable to control my anger or otherwise communicate. is not dead, the pcb store is open, the rest of it is to be determined. wish me luck (or tell me to fuck off) in 2018. this is the new year so I think this a good time for a change. if anyone is going through something similar I want you to know that you are not alone. over and out...EATyourGUITAR

Happy new year! Good to hear you've established a path from out of the muck, my condolences over the rough patch.

For all I know, you have a back-up of this body of work and all is well. If not, you may wish to consolidate it somewhere as archive. I've lost thousands of posts to forum shut downs, most of which were during my "this is great!" phase prior to any inset of forum burn-out.

Here's to a better '18!

I'm glad you have a solid plan forward dawg. I'm sorry that you had to experience the long slow burn of such a gnarly downward spiral, though you were always cool to me. I hope the coming year is good to you, Me, and everyone else for that matter. The world is a pile of shit sometimes and we need all the help we can get.

As they said In the 90's, Stay up.

I have been in a similar place before and I feel you man. I think you're a good dude and have been here a long time. Get right with yourself, stay the course and take it a day at a time. :)

owning your own mistakes is huge, as is not blaming other people for them. I wish you the best with the upcoming year and congrats on starting to get your life together again. stay honest and open, and other people will be happy to help you if you are also willing to continue to keep helping yourself stay right

I hope you won't be leaving us here EYG, I always get a bit excited when I see you've responded on a thread. You know your stuff and I get to have a go at learning something and I also enjoy your occasional heavy handedness - I think it adds a bit of colour to the place.

It's been a pleasure getting to know you a bit through here. Sending me free PCBs, fixing my Rosac wah-fuzz and sending it over to the UK and not charging me anything for your time, chiming in with expertise I can't understand when I ask for help.

And this is a DIY electronics forum, surely we're all a bit autistic here! It's not like I can go down the pub and find people to talk about capacitors and opamps with so I love this forum and it's a bit cosier than the big ones.

Anyway, I wish you well in finding some balance or whatever it is you need to be healthy.

I must build up that Wolf Computer PCB soon.

Its ok man. I know I snapped back at you in my thread, but I didn't take into account that there might be more going on that I wasn't aware of.

I've got a shit head temper, and you didn't deserve me getting pissy.

Take as much time as you need man, I'm sorry life dealt you a shit hand. It will get better. We're here for you if you need us.

Good luck. :hug:
