Hiya Paul
Good to have you back in the fold  (or should that be byre ;<))   )
Congrats on the Granddaddery, surely you are far too young for such
advanced status ?  Seriously though, looking forward to S-DIY 2008 and
some more of your inimitable Maddox-ness; Defender looks cool !

Best regards
Pete

Subject: [sdiy] Hello again

All,

 Hello again, I thought it was time I joined up again.

 Firstly let's dispel some of the rumours I've seen floating around the
net.....

 1) Modulus.synth.net redirects to my new site - http://www.vacoloco.net

 2) The new site isn't *just* about my website design work, take a peek,
you'll see there's a lot more going on there.

 3) I'm still building synths (http://www.vacoloco.net/synths/ and in
particular http://www.vacoloco.net/synths/defender/)

 4) It is true however, that I shall no longer be building them
commercially. I've been mucked around and screwed over by three large
companies, who shall remain nameless, over my designs and had promise
after
promise of help commercialising them amount to nothing.
 I also want to add *Anything* I do in the realm of Synth-DIY now will
become open source (most likely FLOSS) once it's completed, or near
completed. This includes schematics, PCB files and source code.

 5) Making music in my new band called Ten Fifty
(http://www.Tenfifty.co.uk
, http://www.overplay.com/TenFifty , http://www.myspace.com/TenFifty)
has
become a very high priority for me. To a certain extent my synth
building is
taking a back seat to this.
 
 6) Neil and I have started talking about SynthDIY-UK 2008. Just
touching
base to see what's what, so nothing official and no dates yet. We'll
post
more when we've got more.
 
 7) I'm older (I'm a granddad now) and wiser than when I left SDIY, I'm
a
little more chilled about stuff and I promise not to loose my cool, if
you
annoy me, I'll just block your posts and I expect you to do the same to
me.
no more flame wars I promise.

 8) One final thing, I still love PPGs, Digital synths and I still want
a
memory moog :-)

For up to the minute information and general waffling you can check my
blog
and grab the RSS feed (if you have an RSS aggregator) here -
http://blog.vacoloco.net

Anyway, now I've got that little lot out of my system Let the party
resume.

TTFN
Paul
