Is datamancer still in business

(1/2) > >>

Nonuke:
Hi all, I am writing in here since Iím not sure where it should be posted.

Iíve been on a search for a nice case for a preonic case, and ended up on datamancer.com, where they offer a hardwood case. Iíve placed my order months ago, and other to the charge for the order, and an email confirming it, Iíve never heard from them again.

Iíve written to them, by email and from the web page, without any luck. I am not sure if they are still in business, and I think I may not be the only person buying from an inactive vendor. Anyone has info about what is going on with datamancer?

Shall I consider myself officially scammed?

Thanks for any inputs on this topic

Unfortunately, Datamancer committed suicide several years ago.

Keyboard enthusiasts generally either loved or hated his work, but anybody would have to admit that it was interesting and artistic.

I don't know any of the backstory, but I ordered one of the walnut 60% cases from datamancer.com on June 6 of last year and it shipped almost exactly a month later, on July 7. I received an automated order receipt on the day of my order and there was no communication after that until I got an "It just shipped!" email from PayPal. I don't know how representative that is of typical wait times.

Someone is still making things under his name. Dunno if it was backstock, or they are actually using his tools and style. Maybe a relative?
His passing was a big hit. He did amazing work.

I still have hope the case will ship one day. But itís really frustrating to have no communication from whoever is running shop today.
