The Most Exciting Mail Day Ever- From a Lovely Duck!
« on: Thu, 21 February 2013, 11:45:03 »
Today I received a small package:




It vaguely read "Amstedam", and I straight away knew who was behind this mystery package. First off, a big thanks to Rendom for giving my address to Webwit so that I could receive my special prize! :D
This is what the package contained:





A Qwerkeys infill DT cap and Webwit's famous turd cap that some of us very well recognise! Awesome!





Lovely little note with the package, but the awesome Duck is no secret!






This beautiful keycap now has pride of place on my Poker with blues. For the man to send me such a stunning and obviously priceless cap is a deed that will not be forgotten. It's now wrapped up nicely in my keycap box to avoid any damage. The message is stowed way with my Techkeys cards and the like
Seriously though, a big thanks to Webwit (and to some extent Rendom- not knowing how much he was ever involved) for sending me this cool little package.

I remember seeing it in the DT awards in one of Webwit's posts. Remembering what it was, I'm extremely proud to say that I am the winner of the DT worst keycaps award! It's an honour!

*If Webwit could answer this for me though please: Is this cap SP made? The texture doesn't feel painted to me. Plus there's the remains of the sprue on one side of the keycap as seen in the picture. If you managed to get them to do a one off for me, thank you! :D

Thanks again, Alessandro

It should be treasured rather than smoked! ;)

Because Backspace is the only 2.00 unit keycap on his keyboard. And it wouldn't feel right with that bottom row profile on the top row. :D

Alessandro, I have the same turd keycap. I got it from Rayuki from his "mistake" keys. I'll post up a pic when I get to a PC. We're turdcap bros now!

IIRC, it's supposed to resemble wood and was first seen when Lister posted pics of his trip to SP. He got a bag of prototypes and this was one of them (not necessarily the exact same).
Also, "you" won the Ping Award, there was no such award as the Worst Keycaps Award.

That was it! What was the Ping Award about again?

The Ping award was about the worst keyboard related experience in 2012. You didn't win per se, but rather the whole community, since there seemed to be a "love crappy overpriced key caps or you are a hater" attitude. The reason you "won" was because the whole thing boiled up around your key caps.

I'm just explaining, not hating ;)
