The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.
The short answer is no. Here in Tom Faletti's own words ... "The one constant in life is change, as we all know. Ed's(Spyder) wife is retiring this year and therefore he has decided to retire again. From ARM this time, rather than the Smithsonian. He has children and grandchildren scattered around the country and even in Europe, so there is much traveling in his future.
I am moving forward with ARM, but as of 1/1/17 I have suspended retail operations so that I may devote more time to developing ARM's new products. In addition, I've had a few medical issues this past year with three hospital stays, so I am going to spend more time on my health and well-being as well as other issues in my life. For those still interested in ARM kits and accessories, you can order them through the www.micromark.com website as long as supplies last. They are mentioned in their catalog, but are only available for purchase from their website."
