    i'd be interested in the penumbra, depending on whether i've a board it'd fit on.

    i also need to package up those sgi boards, things have been a bit hectic.

    I'm interested in the Retro set too, so if GH doesn't want it.

    I have all the caps with me today - it was too dark for decent pictures at home last night. I'll get some images up in a short while :D

    (and for Gareth's benefit, in the layout of a Noppoo Choc Mini, noting the odd space bar size):

    It's for sale in my thread here, and I will be listing other sets a little later. (Damn you, urgent work).

    Terrifically kind of you, and they look absolutely splendid. Unfortunately, they're out of my budget (I warned you I was brassic!) so I'll step out of line and let Jester have a shot.

    That's quite alright - I like looking at fun new layouts. The problem with these here keycaps is the price - I spent $190 on getting them in the first place...

    Jester - keen? I can take some more pictures if so!

    Yay! My customs form for the GMK Dolch group buy finally turned up today.

    I was starting to get worried about it going missing.
    I know Jinq-sea bought a set, is anyone else waiting on one?

    Did it come from Royal Mail? I am too starting to get worried about it going astray, and it has my set and Margo Baggins'!

    My RM bill turned up yesterday, the caps should get to me tomorrow with a bit of luck.

    Yep, Royal Mail indeed. Looks like several orders are turning up now, hopefully you package should turn in the next day or so.

    The customs charge is £11.78, doubt I'll see the caps before early next week though.

    My Dolch stuff arrived ages ago and customs-free. It could be that mine were sent out earlier because I also had stabilizers in the order perhaps.

    I've not long moved and ever since I have, everything I've ordered from the US has had fees. I guess the Windsor office is more strict than the Slough one...

    Absolutely love the purple key set. Is that blue illumination on your board?

    Did this last night...

    I got it halfway into that case before I realised I'd forgotten to change the left shift so that will have to wait until I get the soldering iron out again.

    Also changed the Cherry stabs to back Costar on my work Phantom, feels much nicer now. I think that the cutouts weren't done very well on my custom plate as the Cherry stabs felt really loose.
