    I've a single nyan cat trail cap. I'll have photos of mine up tonight or tomorrow evening.

    I kinda wish I had one of those ski data boards to use the extra caps on now. Might see if I can find some kind of extra programmable keypad. My favourite cap so far has (I think) gamma, phi, XII and 6 on it.

    My wife thought it best to celebrate his birthday today, what with being back at school tomorrow. I whole-heartedly agreed. :)

    I shall be cap counting tomorrow.

    I gave up counting after doing the big lot... it made my brain hurt, and I probably got it a bit wrong lol.

    I'm really keen to see what you guys got by way of white-on-black alphas and modifiers!

    For 'counting' read 'sorting' - I'm fairly excited to see what's in there. I'm rather hoping for one of those black on orange Awesome faces.

    Spreadie I have a black on orange awesome face... no idea if there is another one in there. You are welcome to mine if you can help me out with some white-on-blacks!

    Found a green ISO left shift on GH. Yay!
    And a blue 1.5 alt, just need to agree what he wants for it!

    When they arrive with package from fuus, I'll have a full RGB set for the 1800 :D

    @GMC I was meaning to ask how you like the 1800 and what switches yours has. I'm really tempted to hunt for one... just not the awful G81-1800 with membrane keys...

    Still trying to key up the g80 with blacks to start using that for a bit. Been rocking the skidata with clears for a while now and REALLY like that.
    Wish my pure had clears but the LEDs mean soldering would be necessary to change the switches still. An excuse for an ISO GH60 :p

    I've been looking for a 1800 for a while Lenny, not found one yet. Pretty hard to come by in the UK I think?

    Well, for a half decent price anyways.

    There's one on ebay at the moment for £35 but it says G80/G81 which isn't very helpful... ;)

    Stafford, right?
    I think I contacted him and it was a g81 so my switches.

    If you aren't fussy about getting a wkl as I was then they appear regularly in the 60-70£ bracket.

    I'd recommend posting on dt which is how I got mine.

    I need to track down iso green shift - not enough posts to start a classified on gh. I will find one sometime hopefully!

    Trawl the GH crapbag thread and send a PM, I saw someone posted a pic with one so that was going to be my next stop. Still will be if can't cut a deal with the guy I'm speaking to about the blue alt

    Sounds about right... I don't think an 1800 with MX switches (even blacks) would be hanging around at £35 :D

    I'm happy to tinker with my bro's G80-3000 for as long as he lets me... might even persuade him to sell the caps and give me the board in good will. :lol:

    If it have doubleshots the G81-1800 could still be worth buying of course. Current production 1800 is actually 1865 and they only come in browns generally, but also have NKRO/6KRO unlike nearly all the older models with only 2KRO so there is a bit of good there.
    1800 layout is my favorite fullsize. The only thing that keep me from using one of my 3 on a regular basis for everything is the lousy 2KRO.
