« on: Tue, 01 March 2011, 08:57:26 »
For the next group buy, we will do an ivory key with green lettering (waiting to confirm exact color from SP).   These will be Cherry MX only.  I have plenty of orange on black Alps  keys left, if you want some of them.

USA - First key $7 shipped, additional keys +$4 each.
Non-USA - First key $11 shipped, additional keys +$4 each.

Pre-pay just like the last batch. Send money via paypal (as a gift if at  all possible) to herzog [at] uhhh [dot] org . In the subject, put GH key - March - GH username.  In the body of the message, please include number of  keys, your mailing address, and your geekhack username.

According to 7bit, Sixty has the signature plastics color samples.  I would politely request that he post them in the wiki for future reference on this and other matters.  If that is ok with signature plastics, of course.

the grayish ivory is kinda throwing me off because at first I thought it was just plain ivory which is just an off white, but overall I think it would look good on a black keyboard.

No pics.  The keys are ordered, but have not been received yet.  Typically, they are sold out before I receive them to post pics.

They've already been ordered from SP, we'll have them much sooner than the round 3 group buy. Just guessing from previous months, I'd say ~2 weeks?

SP is backed up due to some huge order.  :)

It may be another week or so before I get the keys from them.  When I do, they will go out in short order.

We've got about 15-20 or so still available out of this order (green on ivory, Cherry MX)...I'm only going to keep doing these orders as long as there is interest.  Either interest is dying down now, or this simply was a very unpopular color.  :)  (usually, I have to turn down 20 or so orders from folks that didn't jump fast enough)

I'm thinking it's an unpopular color, I only picked them up out of a need to not miss any... :P Going by this pic, I'd still personally love to see RCS on WA or RCJ on WA, though I imagine they'd be unpopular as well... BFN on WA might be nice, or YCH on NN, or maybe some two-tone like a BFN on BFU, or RR on RAS, or YCE on YCG. The two-tones might look good swapped, as well, I really don't know.

I think it'd be nice to have more keys kinda like this color scheme. A departure from all the in your face red, orange, etc. How about a medium-light gray key with blood red font, or a darker gray key with a sky blue font. Just some suggestions, I really like these monthly keys!

This will be my first geekhack key!  I agree with the "something different" color schemes. they are a good way for people to test out colors that they may want as a full keyboard color scheme, too.  Here are some that I may like:
  • Yellow on grey
  • Green on beige
  • Brown on white
  • Pale Pink on brown

Edit: ^^^Red/orange/or light blue on grey are cool too.

Yea it only took a month for SP to make them though! But at least I got mine out before the group buy 3 people. Although one key is much easier to manage than 1000s.

Keys actually showed up finally!!  Will be mailing out monday and tuesday.  I was planning on skipping the April GH key order...but since these arrived, I'll put in an order for April.  Likely black text on orange key...keep a look out for the new thread.



Actually looks more green then that...my iPhone camera sucks.

I got my keys today. Im working right now but I will post pics after work. You will not believe what the USPS did to this pkg... My keys are destroyed, I can tell this without even opening up the pkg because I see a tire print across it, as well as a half melted key peeking out of a rip in the mailer...

Initial reports from my house suggest that my keys are there safe.  I am very sorry to hear about the condition of Zaerst's package.  I would definitely file a claim with USPS.

How many did you order?  PM me your shipping information.

Also, which geekhack keys do you currently own? (color schemes)

Sure it works. The structure is intact. Im guessing what happened was that it fell off a transport cart thing and the idiots ran over it dragging it a bit. The other keycap you can see the imprint from the bottom. Goes to show you these caps are stronger than they look!

I like that the tire print is right over the "First Class" stamp...

I'd like to see pad printing survive that!

Got mine today.  My first ever geekhack keys.  I'll post pics tomorrow.  I stand corrected (where ever it was that I made the comment to Ripster) that SP keys are indeed thinner than filco keys.  The key top is much more textured than I anticipated, yet the sides are glossy smooth.  Cool keys.  Can't way for my round 3 sets to arrive!

It may have been seriously destroyed as I am guessing these were run over in the warehouse right after Imav dropped them off because just like Zaerst my enevelope had a tire mark on it but it missed the key
