  1. InterNACHI takes control of NAHI. Nick Gromicko is now NAHI's new Executive Director. https://nachi.org/nahi.htm
  2. I have not been able to find the mk rating on the sec gen FLIRONE. FLIR seems to be hiding it for now. The optics on it are poor, which makes the resolution like trying to see through dirty glasses. FLIR does NOT recommend the FLIRONE for professional use by home inspectors. I have already contacted them on this more than once.
  3. If InterNACHI wins, the patent issue with HomeSafe is dead. If HomeSafe wins, the patent will have the force of law and InterNACHI will continue as it has been. When ASHI faced HomeSafe, they blinked and gave HomeSafe a ton of money.
  4. Scott is a wonderful teacher. Very good in his presentations. I highly recommend.
  5. InterNACHI sues HomeSafe over patent claims
  6. With regard to your first question, I took actions to accomplish three goals: The first was to have the lawsuit against the inspector withdrawn. I achieved that goal just in time on the morning the inspector's response was due to be filed. I believe I had 6 hours left before he could potentially have lost by default. The next concern was to protect my members from immediate subsequent lawsuits and legal threats. I was able to achieve that goal, at least for now. The last goal was to provide a safe haven for all inspectors, not just InterNACHI members. When Bill Louden first called me about thi
  7. Because there is no coalition and my attempts to form one failed. For example, I asked ASHI if they would help and they turned me down explaining that they couldn't even commit $1,000 toward it because they have a 21-member board of directors that has to approve everything. Both major manufacturers turned me down too. So, I had to go it alone. Could be folks turned you down because they don't trust you. History does have a way of repeating itself. Just saying..... The same folks did nothing for the poor inspector who was being sued. History will show that Nick was the only one wh
  8. If the patent fails or wins... InterNACHI and it's members will feel no pain.

  10. Why support a company that's obviously attempting to noose the profession and milk it dry? Why not use your abundant resources to join a coalition of inspectors to repudiate this patent? Marc Where was this "coalition" at the 11th hour before this case went to court? You can't join a group of talkers. Who, other than Nick, did something we can see by their actions? Also, if you knew Nick's legal team and their experience in patent law, you might understand their opinion that the patents in question might be hard to overcome. After a thorough review of the HomeSafe pate

  12. This place if full of insults. Why don't you guys have a pow wow and deal with the insults at home first?
  13. Yep. I accepted his challenge and his terms and he ran out of the ring. In a puff of smoke, Kurt was gone. I think they are afraid.
  14. Anyone can still go through HomeSafe for a safe haven from a law suit. That has always been available. Nick has just provided a way that InterNACHI can have protection for free with their membership. I see no harm in that. Thanks for helping all of us Nick.
