What should I do with these?
« on: Thu, 15 May 2014, 23:27:33 »
I have 4 extra turquoise alpha sets from the Miami Set.


What should I do with them?


BTW there is 1 full base set left in stock so if you were waiting, buy now or forever silence your regrets.

Do a give away or GH benefit sale, make an abortion of a set combining them with some other mods, have a contest for how people would use them, turn them into cuff links or tie clasps or any other such paraphernalia, and so on.

My wife destroys SP double shots so I will need a replacement for her Miami set. Hold one alpha for me if you can sell one and I will pay tomorrow. If I didn't have to be up in less than 5 hours I would handle it now.

I'd go with what nubbs suggested :)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Actually looks pretty good with the Lily Mods - but I don't know if I want to bastardize lily sets...

Countdown a couple of weeks until i3oiler posts to ask what he should do with a few sets of Lily alphas ... ;)

What does she do to them? Shine them quickly?
