Not positive if this is still open, but if so I am interested in an SSK.  No preference otherwise.

How come there are 2 "ReadmeDotTxt" on the list? On at 9 and one at 29 on the list?

Probably because I'm dumb. Just a guess but it's probably a good guess.

It is I will get you on the list. This week is going to be hectic as I'm living out of hotel rooms in Texas taking care of a few business things before the holidays.

For Everyone:

Right now we are still short on meeting our goal for people wanting the USB cable. There have been some new additions and I will get caught up on all that tonight. There are deffinatly more people wanting Grew/White than what I have matching keyboards so some of you farther down will definatly be getting an opt for blue notice from me once I have it all sorted.

I'm in for the USB cable as well. I'd prefer to also get the original cable if possible (and not too much hassle) and get everything shipped together as that is probably the cheapest option to Europe. Also, if there are no white ones left when I am in line, I'm also happy with a blue one.

I'd be happy to buy a couple of extra usb cables if that helps you make make your MOQ.  Spares are always a good thing.

I am also interested in a USB cable. Since I already own a Model M (not one from this selling), I'd like to only get the cable, if possible. I'm from Europe, so let me know if this is even possible.

I'm fine with a Blue label.

I would like to add a USB cable to my order.

If any of them date code around Nov 1, that would be cool, but no big deal if not.

Thank you!
I'm back.

Blue label SSK is better than no SSK! :) Hope the SDK cables are found soon! Looking forward to end the year with a bang :)

Not to be pushy, but any idea what ASAP invoices are going out and getting shipped? I'm hoping to get this in the mail before the holiday rush gums up shipping.

Due to having to leave town for the week ASAP will Invoice and ship at the beginning of next week.

Devices with USB cables will probably be in early Dec depending on the time it takes for them to be made.

With the weather and me being asthmatic the ps2 cables may take some time. We have only made it through 1 storage space so far nd there are 4 more to go. I was really hopeful when we found a box of IBM PS/2 mice but the cables were not in that box.

Just let me know if you want SSK/FSK,  Blue/White[Grey], and no cable/ps2 cable/usb.
My blue label ssk has 1-piece keycaps.  Not sure if all the blue labels you have are all two-piece key caps, but I would like the following:
  • two-piece keycap ssk (blue or white)
  • ps2 cable (with large ferrite in ps2 side if possible or metal crimping on the sdl side if possible)
  • orihalcon's usb cable (in addition to the ps2)
  • shipping via my UPS account (to save some dough)
oh, and no rush on timing--just wait until you have it all together and then you can ship it out--well into the new year if need be.  :cool:

That is an amazing picture of ssk's, the likes the world has probably never seen before.  :thumb:  I can only imagine how enjoyable it was setting up those keyboards for the photo--unreal!  :D  (I also spied a box of Novell NetWare in the background--super stuff!)

Just managed to catch up on this thread. Man, this is crazy; in a good way. The discount on the orihalcon cable made this all better. I just purchased one and cost me around $50 to get it shipped in Asia. So I suggest that people should jump to it now.

Props to you bmmcwhirt on all of this. Also mine is now bolt mod, scary to do it since it was my first attempt but once you've done it you'll see that its not that difficult at all.

ASAP Invoices will go out some time this evening.

Things have more hectic on this trip than I expected and cant sleep but I'm not awake enough to feel good about sending them out now.


Monday will be the last day to change your request to be on the USB list.

PS2 cables being found is still a huge guess on the ETA. If the weather is unreasonable when I get back to Indiana we'll revisit those of you only wanting PS2 cables to see what we can work out.

I guess, this some how got lost in other posts. Is it possible and if so, am I already on the list? :)

I was thinking on this and forgot to reply.  I don't want to turn this into a gull on group buy but unless someone complains or we get several others wanting JUST a cable I will allow this. If it turns out there are several other people in your situation, I will have to consider if I want to allow it or separate it out into it's own group buy in the appropriate forum. So for now I will allow it but just remember it's contingent on the above.

Yes you are just lower in the list but as of right now I still have enough boards to cover everyone.  Just let me know if you want no cable, ps2 cable, or usb cable. The PS2 cables are in limbo right now. I'm trying to find the box they are in or another solution. You wont see any changes to the list in the original post till probably Tues but I have you one the spreadsheet.

If you are on the ASAP list 'AND' your join date is before Sept 20 2017, you should have received a PM with a request for an email for the invoice. If you have not please check your PM again, then contact me. Shipping for ASAP should happen Tuesday or Wednesday.

I'm going to make arrangements for the USB Cables at that time as well. I will update the original post before then so everyone has time to check that their on the right list. Living out of hotels for the last week has made things hectic and I'm unfortunately human so I am capable of making mistakes. As of right now I have not updated the original post with info in my spreadsheet so that is out of date.

Hi bmmcwhirt,

I'm interested in one White Label SSK with Orihalcon cable if there's any spots left. I'm alright with Blue Label if there aren't any White ones left. Were you selling any of those Model F XTs as well?

Thank you :D

Hi bmmcwhirt,

Interested in a ssk if there are any spot left (whichever faster to send ps/2 or usb doesn't matter), and maybe shipped early December to a friend's location in Rhode Island before he come to Indonesia for holiday. :D

Thank You very much.

Back home!  One long drive a mutilated deer and a destroyed Dodge Ram Bumper later.

I will get caught up on all the posts in the morning and all the ASAPs that are paid will go out around noon.

I'm too tired to read all the posts tonight but I will read them all and my PM before shipping to make sure I haven't missed anything. Then I will ship and come back and send you all that were ASAP tracking information and get caught up with the rest of you and work out the final details on the USB cables.

All 3 parts of the bumper and the driver side headlight all had to be replaced. Surprisingly it was only about 1600 in damages. Had it been anything other than a truck damages would have been way worse and we may have not escaped uninjured. There were 6(that we saw) deer crossing the interstate 3 large doe and 3 smaller deer, we ended up only hitting one. They did have to wash the truck and the Uhall as it did deficate all down the side. I can sympathise with that as I'm sure I would have too. It did scamper off but doubtful that it lived.

Yeesh. I've had three deer collisions, with the full range of severities for the deer. Thankfully I had a bull bar for the worst one, and the most damage ever done to the car was when one of them busted my side-view mirror off with its head. 65 bucks on ebay later and all was hunky-dory but yeah, those pea-brained creatures are a real treat to live with.  :rolleyes:

However since they mostly came out of a school some time around 1998, some brilliant person thought writing 'SPACE BAR' and 'I' on some of them in permeant marker. I have simple green and alcohol which I know are good solutions for removing such blasphemy, but does anyone have any better suggestions before I do?

I ended up using a can Goof Off to get it off mine.

Hate to hear about the deer and the damage, but am really glad everyone's alright.  I had a coyote once do $4k in damage to one of my cars when he ran into the side of me.  :eek:  Makes you wonder what's chasing them that running onto a highway of speeding metal seems like a better way to go.  :eek:

Hate to hear about the deer and the damage, but am really glad everyone's alright.  I had a coyote once do $4k in damage to one of my cars when he ran into the side of me.  :eek:  Makes you wonder what's chasing them that running onto a highway of speeding metal seems like a better way to go.  :eek:

I'm updating the list and going to update the original post in the next hour.  If you check and it's been updated make sure you are on there and the information is correct.

I'll add this to the OP as well:  If you are outside the USA, several people have found remailers that are far cheaper than what I'm able to ship for. It's running about $80USD to ship to Canada and $90+ to ship to other countries. The remailers run about 20-40 and that is a huge savings. If those of you that have used one or looked into it could chime in to help the others I would greatly appreciate it. My goal here was to get as many of thee into the hands of fellow clackers as affordably as possible and that shipping is killing the dreams of some and it's pissing me off.

I looked in to DHL but they want me to have a corporate account in order to even get a quote so if anyone has other thoughts please let us know.

:O Damn, that's a lot!
Was that a quote from USPS, UPS, or someone else?

I thought the flat rate game board to Canada was in the mid-high-$50 range.
Trump gave some private advice to a friend who had acknowledged some bad behavior toward women. "Real power is fear. It's all about strength. Never show weakness. You've always got to be strong. Don't be bullied. There is no choice.
"You've got to deny, deny, deny, and push back on these women," he said. "If you admit to anything and any culpability, then you're dead. That was a big mistake that you made. You didn't come out guns blazing and just challenge them. You showed weakness. You've got to be strong. You've got to be aggressive. You've got to push back hard. You've got to deny anything that's said about you. Never admit."

How exactly is the updated list working now? It seems like users that joined prior to the starting date of this thread that have requested an SSK later than others get higher priority?

My name seems to keep getting bumped further and further down the list (getting bumped by users that requested an SSK at a later date than myself, but have an earlier Geekhack join date)

I can't speak for the thread starter, but long-term loyalty and participation in the community counts for a lot, in contrast to an outsider who just swooped in to try to get in on a good deal.

I believe he's selling first to people with accounts pre-dating the original thread. Once that group is all shipped, he'll sell the remainders to new comers. Like fohat said, it's all about giving back to a loyal community and protected against deal-hunters / resellers.

I've been on the fence about this one for so long, but let's go for it. If there are any left, I'd love to have one. I'm not particular about the label, and I already have cables.

With new people keep coming in who registered before the og thread, I am afraid all recent registered like myself would never get the board at all...Was 13 on the list, now got bumped all the way to 34. I am quite sure there would be no white for me, may be no cable, nothing probably. Just sad to think about...
