    Now that does look good - I'm a bit of a stickler for the legends being the same colour :thumb:

    It was only when I posted the image that I realised the space bar was askew, Sorted now.

    I originally thought that light blue and dolch would work, but damn it looks good with red.

    Just watch out for the USB plug. I don't think there are any issues with the CM Storms as far as I know though.

    In other news, a week with the PBTs. I can't go back. The Smooth ABS is nice, especially if it's doubleshot, but the PBTs have this nice grainy texture.

    Can people recommend a good place to get nice usb cables from? The one that comes with the rapid is a right angle jobbie that's the wrong angle and I'd prefer a straight. Maybe something with pretty colours.

    Pexon (aka shrop on here) does awesome ones. Either message him on here or check out pexonpcs.co.uk :)

    i'd also vouch for shrops cables. i got two when he first started doing usb cables for keyboards on here and they're still going strong.

    Thanks. I'd looked at the led ones he does which look pretty snazzy, but maybe just a little ....

    I will have to have a look when on my pc later as there are far too many colour options to be doing that on my phone. Although have until tuesday to decide and payday finally comes. And is gone again very quickly. Ha ha.

    Finally getting round to getting some desks for the office, but after seeing a pic of the inside of Ikea desktops, I'm going to go round the second hand places instead.

    Just bought a Quickfire XT with browns for work, but it's nicer to type on than my Quickfire Ultimate (also with browns), might just have to keep it at home :p

    Nice keyboard GeorgeK. The keyboards I bought arrived a few hours ago. Among them is your AT older brother ...

    Next step is some cleaning for both boards and a retrobright session for the M0110 case.

    Can't wait to see how that M0110 turns out :D. I love me some old Apple/Alps boards, I'm using my AAK as we speak, just need to tidy her guts up a little :D.

    I can't wait either. I'm like a kid on Christmas morning :lol:. I can't decide which one to used with the trackball, but the Apple matches it almost perfectly.

    The Apple for sure, the yellowing of the case is nearly the same as the colour of the trackball :D.
