I'd imagine there is a certain amount of overhead running Vic's shop (rent light heat/cooling et). Not easy to run a small business especially in these uncertain economic times...

Again a great big thanks to all of you crazy amp nutz who pitched in. If you are ever in or around Syracuse NY, email me and I'll buy you a couple of pints! :cheers:

Baron, you might add that if you cannot pay by credit card, you can send your donation to Mojave Ampworks by mail like I did. :idea:

With the price of beer here in blighty it might make economic sense for one to fly to NY and take you up on your offer! :cheers:

Hewever Baron, we could always take off and go camping in the mountains of New York. Playing gentle tunes on our guitars whilst sat around a camp fire.

Forget about camping in the woods, Lord Spacefoot. I'll send in some cash just so the Baron doesn't have to go through that. What's that saying down around Kent's way? Oh yes, "Paddle faster, I hear banjos". :mrgreen:

Donated what I could miss as a student, hope to really donate more someday... This place is quality stuff, has helped out many people many times before! It's also important for us to keep the flame going, pass on the favour of being helped by helping others when possible of course :)

Here's to this place never burning down! :cheers:

Hey Lads,
Your all a great bunch and all your donations have done wonders. Some of you were incredibly generous and we appreciate the support. I'm down with medical disability at present. Were keeping the place running and your donations have been EXTREMELY helpful so thank you all and I promise the board is safe and sound. It will be here for a long time don't worry.

What's wrong with me? I've got ruptured cervical discs in my neck and they are pressing down on the nerves branching out into the arms. This has progressed to a level where I'm not able to work at present but I'm going to be fixed up at some point with surgery and I'll get the use of my Left arm back.

This is not uncommon and some of you either had this or know someone that has. So without anymore sob story I'll leave it at that.

Thanks again for your continued support.


Thanks again
Victor Mason

Get well soon Vic, that's gotta suck. I've got back problems myself, so I can only imagine.

Ouch! Don't lift anymore of all those JTM45s and Superleads that you have stacked up like cordwood at the palace until you get better, OK? :twisted:
