I've been following Blake's blog for some years. He's got a well-known and well-respected retrocomputing blog, so he has quite a bit of street cred. Talking to him like that (or anyone for that matter) is uncalled for.

My experience: I ordered a Drive Pak from Roger in early December off of eBay, and I got it reasonably quick. Whatever the issue is, I'm sure it will come out eventually.
