Well, it's been almost 6 years since the first prototype YouTube video and 4 major design revisions, but I finally sold the last light yesterday. Congrats to Barry on the being the last buyer! And thanks again to all my great customers! Couldn't have done it without you. It's time for me to shift some priorities and drop back into a support-only role with DesignShine.
