Everyone, I'm sorry, but I'm going to be out of commission for a while.
Someone ransacked my lab last night. Almost everything has been destroyed.
Nothing was stolen, just destroyed. It looks like some of the online threats managed to materialize.
I don't have the money to replace all of this because I've spent $30K on more flooding/house repairs. Quite frankly, I believe I'm done with this business. I'll check you all later.

I want to thank all of you who've messaged me or sent positive vibes. I've calmed down and my emotions aren't so raw. So let me explain what's going to happen from this point..

I'm still selling my products, including all of my DIY kits, nothing changes as far as those are concerned. Some person(s) pried the door jam and warped the door opening, came into the lab, and pulled over my shelving. No, nothing "collapsed". The shelves, despite being overloaded, did not "fall". Someone forced entry into my lab and vandalized the quickest things they could (I'm assuming) and darted out before getting caught.

The back gate was also opened, I never use this gate and there would be nobody here to open it. Below my home is a.. rough apartment complex.. School just let out for the summer a couple of days ago.. I am HOPING that this is the work of young, stupid kids and not some deranged nutjob from the internet.

I'm honestly just overwhelmed right now, highly depressed and incredibly burned out by this. I will build this back. I do not want money or any sort of donations. That was never the point of my communicating this to you all. And what's more disturbing to me more than anything are the trolls who are going out of their way to say that this is some sort of money scam. To those who've contributed to that narrative, follower or not, you're blocked. That's disgusting and doesn't help me.

Again, if you want to help PLEASE do not try to send me money or anything like that. If you need an RGB kit, buy one! Supporting my business is the best way to help me.
SNES 2CHIP is going to happen. It's inevitable. I've worked far too hard on that to just puss out.
Modding services will also return, it's just going to take me a long time. This was a lot..
Thanks, everyone. I'll keep you posted.

Sure, I can tell you what (I think) happened.

I was working with
@HDRetrovision
 on Friday night, and it was kind of late. I don't remember if I locked the door. But the next morning I went to the lab and the door was ajar. I didn't at the time notice that the jam was pried/jimmied, but I walked in and saw that all of my inventory, prototypes, and a myriad of other things were thrown around with much of it destroyed.

Initially, during heightened emotions, I thought that it was one of the few online death threatening stalkers that I have.. But I believe what's most likely now is either someone looking either to just vandalize or someone who accidently knocked or pushed over my shelving while sifting through  my belonging and then high-tailed it out.

Anyhow, that's all I currently know. What's even more disheartening are the people in the comments who want to challenge any of this. There is no donations, there is no GoFundMe, I just wanted to explain to people what had happened and that I would br away for a while, remedying this.

That absolutely sucks. I am sorry this happened to this person.

I can't help but wonder that his last theory is the most accurate - they were moving things around looking for valuables and accidentally made the shelf to fall, busting a lot of equipment in the process. My reasoning is that, if someone wanted to really trash the place, they would have beaten and cracked the LCD screens, shattered the nice framed picture on the wall, thrown the 3D printers around, etc.

Well, that or they were spooked by something and couldn't finish the job.

Oh, the "whys" of the datasheets... The information is there not to be an axiomatic truth, but instead each speck of data must be slowly inhaled while carefully performing a deep search inside oneself to find the true metaphysical sense...

The pictures look exactly like what the storage basement of my previous apartment building looked like when it was ransacked, each time.

Because the displays weren't smashed, I too am inclined towards a simple burglary rather than any kind of malice.  Kids or junkies, the "non-professional" burglars, who are just looking for anything to pawn or sell for a quick buck, don't care if they damage stuff but also not damaging stuff just "for fun".

My guess is the burglar(s) got scared and left when the shelving fell.

Yep, my money is on that happening.
They collapsed the shelving and it scared the crap out of them and they bolted.
Almost certainly not a hater intent on smashing things up.

I think its a burglary he has alot of common collectible popular stuff. Friend of a friend etc


its considered fairly easy to sell. I just wonder if there was word going around about a rare game or something he had obtained. They could have been looking for something specific

if someone is gonna pry a door jam either they have a very good reason or its the only possible target. that is like going after the healthy buffalo, its walking around with burglary tools for one, its like way added charges for that too. then you got use of a burglary tool... usually they want to get caught for trespassing and unlawful entry. not breaking and entering etc. they can even add a deadly weapon charge because you broke into someones house with a crow bar. I think basically all the 'please plea to reduce the grocery list' 'standard charges' get upgraded to some 'aggravated' charges if you do this. And the cops go bananas because people start freaking out that their door is gonna get attacked with destructive force
