I happened to drop by TheVarlet.com today and a message was displayed that this account has expired. 
Is there any news on Aldo? Has he closed doors? 
I placed an order on the (in)famous reserve list in November 2015 and was kind of writing this one off after his announcement on the LE.
Now, with the webpage expired, I wonder what happened here.

I wouldn't assume he is closed. It may be down for updates or maintenance.

I remember Aldo mentioning he would be working on fulfilling the reserve list.

I am hoping he simply forgot to renew his domain or something similar.

This is not good news.  Perhaps there is a simple explanation, but his not responding to emails just adds to the concern that he's out of business.  I've been on his list since September 2015.

I would be inclined to think this as well. This is the holiday season when life is hectic. Hopefully that's all that has happened. I'd hate to see Aldo not be able to continue his business.

I actually received my alpine knot earlier this week, so it would be strange if he just up and closed shop.

He has been unresponsive to my emails regarding the Mega wait list I have been on. Last contact i had was in the summer and he said I was around 20 in line.

We exchanged emails at the end of last month. He's planning lots of new additions. Otherwise, ???

I doubt it, I was in contact with him several times around Thanksgiving, and he is working through his list as promised.

Gents I believe folks get busy from time to time , I would imagine any longstanding fellow that was planning on packing up would let the community know. Triad and Wolfman have told me I have been on a list , Wolfman for what seems like almost a year now without a response and then a new list made before mine was filled? Anyways I believe gents are just doing the best they can and will be in touch as soon as they can provide some good information.

If you were on the year ish wait list I would contact James. His customer service has been excellent in my experience

Any way you can give an update on the mega list I sent you a couple emails just curious if I'm some what close to hearing something good or I'll just continue to wait. Thanks
