Steve Ditko says not to care. It's about what's next, not living in the past.

He was. Kinda makes you wonder why he had a giant sign on his door that said STEVE DITKO if he didn't want fans bothering him.

Because he was black and white. There was no grey area with him and it would have been outside of his personality to hide.

Nah, he's publicly stated that it was a mistake to put his name on the door of his office.

If I find the article or whatever I’ll post it. Surprised me too. It is odd. I just walked into the building, looked on the directory, said hi to security, took elevator to 7th floor, giant sign on door STEVE DITKO. 

EDIT: Also, you know, I read Ditko's letters to folk on ebay. Someone wrote to him something like, "I know you are a reclusive man who doesn't like visitors..." And Ditko wrote back, in usual blast mode, something like, "Well how do you know I'm a recluse who doesn't like visitors. Are you taking someone else's word on it or you have your own personal experience?" 

It's all really odd.

lol it's not too big a deal, but if you had pics we'd probably be able to tell by the case design :wishluck: but other than that it's speculative....

They started taking action against the creep engine case mid July and into August, so one would assume it is ok.....

But "if" it wasn't and someone left it in there for 3 years, I'd find that difficult to believe....

All the more reason to think that it is fine lol :makepoint: hahaha, but still pics would help :shy: 

I have my dunce cap on too...what is a creep engine design?

If it's still that same LCS that had all the bad reviews, might be better to request in person, but you know that lol hope that you get your books!

So, from what I can infer from the two other threads and the article, this case model was only used for approximately a 3 month period from 04/16 through the end of 6/16.
