Thread: No FSAddon Support for awhile

  1. #1

    Icon9 No FSAddon Support for awhile

    Dear all, I am really sorry to report that for the time being MY support and other FSAddon activities will be on a very low level.

    Our house and home here in Italy got arson-ed and we cannot live in it for the time being. All the shenanigans with insurance and such is taking up all our time, whilst we are camping out with some Italian friends.

    My office is not usable and I only have limited data 'in the cloud' (yeah, I'm old-fashioned). Everything is backed up, but until the house is livable again and I can get my office up and running, there is not much I can do with the backups.

    This is a major blow to us, after having worked hard the past three years to get the house restructured and prepared for our definite move here, all paid from our small savings. I hope you can be patient until Nina and I have our life back on track and my systems back on-line.

    Warmest regards,

    Are you still able to handle sales ? Only way we can help you out here stateside is with a little cash.

    What T-Square said!

    The FSAddon site still looks operational. Been thinking about the Lockheed and the Waco. Now'd be a good time to help out with a purchase. Prayers are with you Francois.

    Arson, you mean someone set it on fire? Hope the bugger was caught and appropriately taken care of. Not sure how they do that in Italy but no doubt folks here could give some good ideas.

    Sorry to hear about the troubles!!!

    My sites (including webshop) are still on-line and active, no worries there. But I cannot guarantee fast support if anythings goes wrong (that's why I took Misty Fjords off-line for now, because the automatic serial key generation for that doesn't work).

    Thanks for all your good wishes and moral support. (And yes, the fire was started deliberately, and no, police is not really interested in searching for whoever did it....... Italy... :-( )

    Just heard that our insurance will only pay less than 50% of the cleaning and restructuring...... so hot dang !

    Downloading "Avro Anson" as I type. My wife is a little upset with me (I have already spent my allowance for this month). Oh Well !!!!!!!! I'll try to buy one or two a month until you are back home.

    God Bless .

    Damn, horrible people. I hope you are able to get everything back to where it was soon, for your own sanity. May karma come around and deliver to the coward who did this to you tenfold the trouble. I'll definitely be picking up something at your store this weekend; it isn't much, but it's something positive. Take care of yourself.

    Hoping you and Nina can get things back to some normalcy, Francois. Downloading two aircraft packages I didn't have yet.

    Traffic must be heavy, slow download speeds from normally pretty quick site.

    Back in the land of maple syrup
    Sorry to hear about your rotten experience.

    Unfortunately there is little hope of the hooligans who did it getting caught unless they are caught red handed (so to speak) doing it again.

    Oh well - there is always a silver lining - This gives me the perfect excuse to pick up a little Bobcat I have been wanting but couldn't really justify.

    Ordered and paid for - will download in a little while, once the load eases up on your system.
