These issues well predate his illness, so that's not a valid excuse. On November 11, Derek posted in the forums that my soundless Overlord stunt was "done, ready to ship." But then in December, he posted that the Lux V orders were actually not ready, because of battery holder issues -- a contradiction that I chose to let go at the time -- so I changed my order to a Lux III to accommodate this, which he confirmed. In January, he actually sent me a USPS shipping notice, but nothing ever shipped. In March, when I inquired about it, he told me he was waiting on a shipment of buckpucks. In April, and again in May, I requested that he just send me the empty hilt. He said he would. Nothing ever shipped. Then in this thread he said, yet again, that the Overlord's were about to ship, but, YET AGAIN, they were delayed due to "idiot postal worker." See a pattern here? It's called LYING. I would not wish serious illness on my worst enemy, but none of this has anything to do with that. It's a torrent of lies and excuses.
