wasn't there a thread a while back where somebody went to Ocean Tech and cleaned them out of all the boards that were in good or decent shape to distribute them to members here?

I thought I remembered reading that all the boards left there were in bad shape.

I stay busy with work and family these days, but I'm still around, lurking.

If you look really closely at the Esc key you can see your reflection

They are SP; pretty common for many of these.

I bought one of the white on black boards they had.  $10 + shipping seemed like a good deal for what I'd be getting out of it.  Hopefully the caps aren't garbage.

the f row of 7000 LPBUS is dyesub.

For the moment at least, they're going on a poker for me.  They may spend a photo session on a mx-mini, but yeah.  I may use it as an opportunity to check out the gradient F row from SP or just use my novelty stuff up there anyways.

Me too, the only problems for me were the Escape (replaced with a red one), the F8 key for some odd reason and the down arrow has a bit of shine. Very nice for $15.
