    What's up with readystrap.com?

    Anyone know what's up with Readystrap's website? A couple days ago it changed from listing Readystrap's products to a 'Website under construction' image, and when I checked it today it was just an embedded YouTube video, a short clip from 'The Usual Suspects' of a guy saying "And like that, he's gone."

    There have been a couple times in the past he seemed to imply that the cost of insurance and pressure to offer discounts were causing him to consider closing up shop. Seems he followed through with that plan.

    Guess he retired a little sooner than expected.

    If you have to have to ask what's up with the site my advice is not to deal with them. Seems obvious to me.

    It was for sale here and another forum, maybe more. Either he decided to just retire or he actually sold it.
    Adult tree frogs are insectivores that eat flies, ants, crickets, beetles, moths, and other small invertebrates. However, most of them start off their lives as herbivores in the tadpole stage.

    I got in one last quick order after he posted the business was for sale. I hope everything goes as planned for him. Building a house is a big job.

    Hopefully he will return to post again - I enjoyed watching him experimenting with his DIY pulk.

    Bon Voyage Gary!

    Should have at least posted notice on his website. Not good.
