^^ When I saw the top of that screen capture I thought for a moment someone had already acquired one and posted a pic of it on their keyboard.

Time to settle down now ...
... to force the flat horseshoe-style cherry on the date of the first pillar of the keycaps ...

Is this even necessary?

This "Depth Black" one looks awesome.

Would look mighty fine next to my Hack Orange :P

Depth Black would go well on my Ducky Shine, which is also black.

I started a prototype one a while back because of your old avatar. I went with the next generation one.
Never finished it though. Might get back to it at some point.

I don't remember that avatar, but I would love one of those keys. PLEASE make them!! Any thing Trek and not Klingon would keep me up at night waiting for the delivery.

The Next Gen badge would cool, but so would the one from Voyager. Or maybe even a warp core ...

Perhaps I remember it wrong. I did think it was a bit of coincidence myself. Must have been someone else's avatar.

Any who, I suppose I should revisit it soon-ish then.  =)

any info on how large the stock is?
it somehow feels, to me, like this prolonged advertising of the caps is due to a large stock that has to sell quick...

Maybe this will be the first mass produced clack sale where they will keep selling until all demand is met *crosses fingers and toes*

Highly doubtful. I like that CC doesn't mass produce anything. Cheapens the brand.

I hope CCs are never mass-produced. It might guarantee getting one, but would seriously reduce the joy of owning one.

Yeah, +1 to that. Would be very disappointing if they were ever mass produced.

What do you mean cheapen the brand? My two CCs sit in a plastic box just like all my other $3 signature plastics keys. I enjoy them just as much as any other key caps I can put on my keyboard. Making them super rare, and crazy expensive in the after market just makes it more frustrating then it needs to be to acquire and own them. It seems pretty selfish to want to be one of the few lucky to get in on a sale, or privileged being invited to private sales, or custom orders that not just anyone can place. Then again this keyboard and key cap hobby is the most selfish hobby I've ever had, so maybe it just comes with the territory. I hate when things turn into "from the community, but for a few"
