    Somnium7? Anyone know how to reach him?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Mike, aka Somnium7, who has been a very cool guy in my dealings with him, was/has been doing some tech work for a friend of mine and it has streched out for months. He has my buddy's pres (two Neotek strips) and my friend has paid a lot of money for parts and labor to him for some work, but now my buddy can't get in touch with him by email or phone.

    First and foremost, I hope he's okay. Second, I know my buddy is getting a bit anxious about this, so if anyone can get him a message, could you ask him to contact Lyle about his Neoteks?

    Thanks to anyone who can help!

    Hey kojdogg,

    I emailed Lyle today and gave him an update. I feel really bad for being out of touch for so long but things have been seriously bad on my end. After my wife left me I had planned to move to DC for my new job. Unfortunately the week before I was to move my new employer terminated me without reason. I had money down on an apartment in DC which I lost, and my old place had been put up for sale by the landlord so as a result I have been homeless ever since. People don't seem to want to rent to an unemployed dude for some reason.

    Anyway sob story aside, I managed at great effort and expense to save everything in a storage unit. The Neotek project is safely in there and is 90% completed. As soon as I get myself situated I will be completing it and sending it back with a full refund on the labor that had been paid. I never did send a bill for the parts and I ultimately plan to eat that cost as well which is several hundred bucks.

    Please understand that these events I described above hit me without any warning and have really devastated my life to the point where I was living in my van for awhile. I was forced to throw out or sell (at a loss) many of my own possessions including my Hammond spinet, my 1967 Econoline, lots of studio gear and just about all of my furniture.

    I am finally getting some serious job offers and have been interviewing every day of the week for the past few weeks. Tomorrow I am even flying to Milwaukee for an interview and then possibly to Seattle next week. So I feel I will be getting my shit together again pretty soon.

    Thanks buddy, it's good to hear from you too and to be online again.

    I hope people here understand that there hasn't been any intention of being greasy to kojdogg's friend on my part. I think some of you remember when the troubles began for me and a few of you even helped me out by buying equipment from me.
    The job market had been totally dead for almost two months and now I suddenly find myself bombarded by job offers. Trust me I'm getting myself into one of them.

    Everybody who purchased items from me got their equipment intact and in reasonable time. As hard as I tried I did not have the time to complete the Neotek project before everything went to hell. Since then I have been living all over the East Coast with anybody who will put me up. I've been to NY, PA, DE, DC and back to VA trying to keep afloat and find work.

    It has been a very rough few months.

    It could be worse. Like, imagine!, a stabile boring and secure existence when the only exciting thing to look forward to is another plate of nachos'n'salsa and a gallon of vanilla ice-cream together with a nightly dose of CNN headline news. And the next day, and the next day and the next...

    Enjoy the moments of cold rain and salty sh*t in your face

    /best wishes and all that.

    Mike-- I'm really sorry to hear about everything that's been going on. Thanks a lot for getting in touch with Lyle. I didn't mean to add any extra stress with this! Good luck with your interviews and I'm really glad to hear that things are looking up.

    Thanks for the kind wishes guys! My trip to Milwaukee was hectic and exhausting. I got a call form the people today and the interview went very well. A few more formalities and hopefully I'll be gainfully employed again and planning my relocation.

    As soon as I'm settled and have unpacked my storage stuff I will be getting back to work on all my projects beginning with the Neotek strips. I too am dying to see that project finished because it is the hotness! Upgraded components, a custom output stage with Jensen transformers etc. I'm still drooling over the thing. Not to mention the sexy chassis and panel work

    Hey Doc nice to hear from you too!

    More bad news for me. I didn't get the job in Milwaukee due to my wrecked credit report. I have got less than one month to find something else now before I am back in my van again.
    This is getting really damn frustrating. I have 4 more people looking to have me work on their gear but no place I can setup to do the work. My current living situation (if you can call it that) barely gives me enough room to breathe a deep breath much less do repair stuff.

    So to all those who need repairs or are waiting for their gear still I am sorry. I just can't get things straightened out no matter how hard I try.
