reading your post from the pub on iphone i think akutard is more fitting
I wonder what will become of the BoardCad.ORG request. I think the AKU teams 3 day response time is coming to an end. I put money on it they don't respond. About 12K worth. The boardcad post in my eyes is the ultimate call out. Anyway the future is bright as through the last 17 days my mind has come alive again. A few of us have come up with some clever idea's over a beer or two. A few new words for our dictionary has come about that are worth a few good laughs. Not really worth the money that was invested nor worth the software that has been taken away which we still have no reason for. We can only speculate at this point but speculation will be good enough as in the end you see we will get my money back plus.
In the end I think regardless of which software you use or which cnc machine you have it's plain retarded.
There is no money in surfboards whatsoever and it's better to keep board building as a hobby.
Long live the backyard shaper. Turn the surfboard shaping machines into panel cutters to make window coverings for all the business closures as well as for the failed housing market.
The AKU Shaper will not be around as the market is over saturated with cnc shaping machines. Many of the machine builders are smart guys and they will all just move on and go into other industries.
So the 12K lost is not that large compared to all the millions that have been lost in the surf industry over the last 3 years.
Even China Factories are closing
Believe it or not even the clothing companies are suffering
Plain clothing and boards without lams will become the new standard.
yes. Definately needs to be a mind set change and a new way of doing things. As smart as we are it seems we are all stupidly infactuated with that hunk of foam and fiberglass that's sets us free. I see no end to our retardation any time soon. Look at how many new board constructions, new materials, and globally more surfers then ever before in more countries. Even more members on this forum.
Maybe I had 1 to many. My god the seahawks suck!
One more thing... We didn't lose our money.. It was stolen/hijacked... Why were really not sure. I agree with you on many points. Did you shut down your business?
ASI is alive & well!
right on... I saw you were selling some stuff so we were not sure.. Best of luck.. can you pm me your number? Wouldnt mind running a few things by you...
BoardCad guys Cool software! Did you happen to get a response from the great akud?
No. Big surprise there. I guess will send the same message again to see if we can get a response before we decide what do do next.
I'm really surprised they didn't respond.. That is a serious call out.
AKU'DNORING : the act of ignoring something or someone that is claiming you are in violation of a law or governing rule. To turn away and act like nothing is wrong because you think you can..
