REQUEST: megnin's entire keyboard collection
« on: Mon, 23 July 2012, 10:20:36 »
i think it's pretty common knowledge that megnin has the largest keyboard collection on gh. but we've never seen pictures of it?!?! CRIMINAL

to all the brilliant friends who have left us, and all the students who climb on their shoulders.

Got a leaked photo. It's only a small part of his collection though.

I just now found this thread.  I've been planning to have a little "keyboard history and progression" layout at work for one of our IT staff meetings.  My boss thinks I need professional help, but suggested that I do a keyboard history thing.  I have all my packages delivered to the office so for a while every time he would come to my office I would tell him, "Hey, I got a new keyboard today."  Sometimes it was more than once a day.  He would just shake his head.

As soon as I get the Ducky Dragon and the Races that iMav is sending out, I'll start the photo op.

I have seen some of the pictures of some of webwit's keyboards over on Deskthority.  I have nothing compared to his keyboards.  He has more of the crazy exotic keyboards than I have keyboards in my entire collection.

i am seriously considering upping the sig size just so he can fit his collection in it :D

I had difficulty getting it in the sig size image allowed on the old GH.  1000 x 300 is tough, but doable.  ;-)

Not at all.  The USPS doesn't charge to deliver the mail.  The sender pays the fees by paying for postage.  ???

I believe the allusion was to using the corp card to purchase the keyboards.  On the other hand, I too have my work address registered with my personal card.

At my work, we are not allowed to get anything delivered to us at work. It might be a fireable offense.

I'm interested in seeing megnin's collection, too. I can't wait for the races to be delivered, so the journey can commence.

It looks like the Races and the Ducky Dragon should be on the way in just a matter of days now.  iMav is shipping the Races and Lin has the Duckys.  I'm starting to gather up my boxes of keyboards to take in to the office where there's some nice long conference tables I can set them out on.  I'll have to swipe a few keyboards from my co-workers who I've supplied keyboards to.  I hate seeing fellow IT workers typing on $9.00 Dell RD keyboards so I've distributed mechanical keyboards to all but two people in my department.  Those last two should be fixed up next week.

Ha, makes me think.

My brother always took me for crazy for putting that much money into keyboards.

Then one day I lend him my model M.

The day afterwards: "Damn I need to buy myself one".
