Three months seems a little long, even in bad weather.

Does anybody know what happened here?

Hey guys...I need to apologize for my absence and lack of attention to this place recently.

Ever since early February I've been fighting a bout of depression that has left me overwhelmed when it comes to social contact. Since I work retail sales, I've had to deal with human interactions during my workdays, but have had a near phobia when it comes to dealing with people away from work (even family.)  I've seen a doctor and medication (plus a change of seasons, I think) are helping, but I'm still fighting it quite a bit.

I'm hoping to kind of ease back into activities around here over the next few weeks, but it might be a sporadic process, I'm afraid.

Hidman -- I screwed up the address when I sent your light back in January and it was returned to me. I've been dragging my feet on mailing it back out (same reason as above) but will resolve to get it out today or tomorrow. Again, I apologize for any stress I caused you over this.

NC- one thing you don't have to do is apologize- everybody hits bumps now and again, and I think you can count on the community you created to understand and have your back.

Kudos to Hidman for his patience, the TM must be a very hard light to wait for lol grin

NC, I think you have probably one of the most understanding forums online.  So, anytime you feel overwhelmed people here respect that and empathize with health concerns.  Let's face it we all have challenges in our lives and we all need a break from our hobbies from time to time.  I'm glad to hear from you and hope only the best for your well being. 

Winter, here, where I live doesn't seem to want to go away.  I still have over a foot of snow in my front yard, but there are good signs like sunny days and warming temperatures.  I think a little sunshine could do many of us a lot a good for our mental stability.  I look forward to so many things in the upcoming months including ditching the down coats for tshirts and shorts, mowing the green grass, and enjoying cold ones with friends around a bon fire with friends, and camping out. 

Even in rough times in our personal lives there is a lot of support here if you are ever feeling down and want to talk about anything beyond new flashlights.  I think everybody here is happy to hear from you and thanks again for doing an excellent job as administrator!

NC - You have nothing to be sorry about. We all owe you massively for creating this forum and much much more.

We are all touched by this illness throughout our lives. But I wish you as speedy a recovery as you can.

I usually would have something to say, even if it is brief.

I have no comment on this.

An update on all this...

I sent a replacement light to Hidman about three weeks ago, and as of yet I have not heard from him regarding its arrival.

It's a very long story regarding the delay in Hidman getting his prize, but the bottom line is that he should now have his light (and I'm out the cost of two of them.)

I apologize to both Hidman and the forum as a whole for my screw-ups on this. I won't let it happen again.

Way to go NC!  I almost forgot what the light was; isn't it a 4sevens S18 or something like that?

Yup. A Nitecore TM11.

Pretty nice looking light...I did take the second one out of the box to see how it felt in the hand. A little on the large size, but not obnoxiously so.

Just recieved the parcel.The sticker shows it got stuck at the CBSA.They probably couldn't xray the content.However - thank you very much NC for sending the tiny monster and the "little" tech lite.Cannot wait to see them in the dark.The monster is my first flashlight with such tremendous lumen output.I made some quick pictures of the box and the flashlights. The comparison picture shows the tiny monster with a liteworkx 504 and a nitecore extreme.

Thanks D
