Yikes- anybody have Tim Sonefelt's phone number? I was going to order the Old Testament character silks from him today- looks like someone took over/hijacked his domain names which expired(?) for http://www.TimSonefelt.com and http://www.WonderImagery.com ? That stinks- does that mean he has to buy his own name back? If I recall, does he live in Greenville, S.C. or someplace? Anyway, I'd still like to order the silk set if I can figure out how to reach him... I know that happened to a friend of mine- he ended up buying his own name back for his web site which was simply his name with a .com at the end of it.

Wow, that's crazy. Hope it's not too frustrating for Tim. Yes, he is a resident of Anderson, SC. Don't know his phone number but he is a charter member of Kidabra, so perhaps Dennis Michael here on the Café can give you more directions. Good luck.

Looks like Tim recently bought the "ChaletMagic.com" name since George Kimery let it lapse.

Since Chalet IS still in business, I can't imagine what Tim plans to do with that.

Interesting...

Thanks Kif, much appreciated. I hope Tim can get back online asap. I am glad guys like MagicBob who operates our web site takes care of all the technical details to make sure our non-profit domain name stays belonging to us only. Scary stuff- obviously some profiteering/taking advantage of people not realizing their domain names expiring is going on here. I have no idea even how to register one's web site so that does not happen- I always have paid a local webber to maintain my business site and they take care of that for me.

People who own domains usually get a notice about their domain name expiring.

In regards to another site I have owned for about 5 years, my domain name automatically renews every 2 years, but I always get a notice about a month away to let me know.

It's a shame that he let it expire, but let's not start making unfair accusations about the person, or persons who bought it please.

When you order a domain name, most of the time you have the option of having it automatically renewed. There are several ways to safe guard your domain name. Also, most of the time when a domain name expires, it's not automatically up for sale again, especially not without notifying the domain name owner.

Looks like both sites are now up and running for Tim.

Excellent. Anyone seen the "Connected" silks put out by Tim as well???- they look very nice on the web site and I like the idea of having the name "Jesus" on a silk (rather than a silk with a "drawing" of a Jesus type face on it)... Are these the thicker "Wonder Imagery" silks too?

Wow....I'm curious about that as well. Especially since I am waiting for George to build me a prop.

By the way, I did receive the "Connected" silks from Tim along with a Moses OT character silk I ordered- first class items. I will be using the silks in another trick not related to "Connected"- I like having an optional "Jesus" silk that has the name on it (the word "Jesus" spelled out) rather than the Jesus "face."

I just checked out the "Connected" - looks nice but wish I could find a video performance of it just to really see it in action.

I hope Tim does not get upset with me about my comments: the silks themselves I really like- I used them with a Laflin Massal tube last week when filming. The "Connected" trick itself does not seem very convincing- and the "handling" of the props as suggested in the instructions is not easy to pull off. It may work better almost as a close up effect. But I do love the silks that came with it and already used them as mentioned above.

Hi Everyone!
Just a quick note about the Chalet Magic domain name. Actually I only maintain the names for George. I've not taken over or snatched up his names. I originally built the Chalet site back when I had time to do that sort of stuff. Now I don't even maintain my own . . . just no time. I only have contact with George about once per year or so when the name comes up for renewal to ask if he wants me to renew it for him. I do and he'll send me a check for the domain nameS he owns.

MagicBus - no worries on using the silks in a different manner - that's what creativity is all about. Connected is an 'object lesson' magic trick. I don't do many of that type of magic and that's the only one of it's kind in our product line. Magically, it's not a mind blower, however to make a point in a unique and magical way it works well. The silks are beautiful though and will work in a number of different ways to mane a number of different points.

Finally, the renewal notice earlier this year went to a spam folder for my MAIN domain name - timsonefelt.com. It wasn't until my site went down that I realized it. ALL of my sites were down for about 16 hours. Memory doesn't serve me as to if it was during that time mentioned above or not. If so, I apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you all for the support!

Merry Christmas!

Hey Tim- I really liked those silks you sent me! I used them immediately on our "Magic With A Message!" one hour special made for local cable access stations entitled "On The Logos Hope." The rough draft version of this program may be posted by MagicBob to http://www.ChristianMagician.org probably by Monday latest. I used your very visual "Sin" and "Jesus" silks as part of a Laflin Massal tube- I thought these were pretty neat since we already had used "picture of Jesus" props earlier in the program. Merry Christmas and would love to see you have a dealer's booth at Abbott's Get-Together someday here in sunny Michigan.
