Calling Speed Racer!

Calling Speed Racer!
I'm trying to reach Joe Pampel (aka: SpeedRacer) about an order I placed with Obsolete Electronics for two 50w Plexi OTs. I sent an order via USPS Priority Mail-Certified but have not heard a response/recieved a reciept of delivery. Sorry to use the forum this way, but my emails seem to get caught in a spam/junk mail filter. Speed, please let me know if you have recieved this order and when you can ship the parts.

Still no word...  
Can someone suggest another way to reach Mr. Pampel?
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

are OEI still out there?
I've been trying to get in touch with Speedracer since the middle of last month - anyone know if OEI are still going or how to contact Joe?  
I've been putting cash aside for one of him 100w OTs and now have the cash.
