    I'm sorry to report that I have major spinal injury. I am bed-ridden, lost most feeling in my left leg and I am on pain killers, so forgive me if my recent posts are even more crazy than usual :clown2:

    Recently all things have fallen like a house of cards, with my son's spinal fusion surgery (luckily all good here, except for 5-figure medical "gap" bills) and my wife is unwell too.

    Anyway, I have been bed-ridden for 2 weeks now and I may require (relatively serious) spinal surgery if things do not improve soon (it has been down hill thus far). So, my income has suddenly stopped.

    My Northern trip that I have been preparing for almost a year has been cancelled too (see: www.achtel.com/Trips ).

    Given the degree of my filming obsession, there is more than $500k worth of filming gear (including Red One :love: ), some of which I decided I could hire out to put some food on the table.

    Sydney User's Group and other members have been tremendously supportive. It is a great community. Thank you!

    Anyway, if you are looking for some gear, send me a direct email for a list of equipment. My email: pawel.achtel (at) 24x7.com.au You can always give me a call. Sydney number: 02-9983 0963 (overseas +61-2-9983 0963)

    I have phone and laptop at my bed so, unless I'm out of my mind from pain, I can usually respond immediately.

    Best possible luck with it all Pawel. Sounds like a pretty tough moment there.

    Hey Pawel, wish you all to get back on your fit quickly; from that moment on things are just going to get better.
