There's a serious drought going on.  There's one cure for this drought, and it's near impossible to come by.  That's right, Raindrop is the one thing that can quench my thirst for tasty blue keycaps.  As luck would have it, someone is willing to give theirs up if I win this contest.

Now, many of you may know how tall I am.  I'm very tall, for those that did not.  I get asked the question alot, "How's the weather up there?"  Well, let me tell you - it is not raining up here!  Oh, how I wish it were raining on my keyboard.  I continually reach to the skies, keyboard in hand, hoping for a single drop to bless my board.

This has proven unfruitful.  I took another approach, thinking perhaps I intimidated the heavens with my height.  I got on one knee and again I reached upward in hopes of receiving that sweet, sweet, rain.

Finally!  My pleas have been answered and my board has been blessed with a single drop of rain.  It's not raining in full force quite yet, but it's a good start.  I'm just hoping that more will come.  Every ocean starts with one drop of water, right?

I would be so happy to flood my board with some Raindrop beauty.

so this man wins a nice shiny new raindrop set, including, base, mods and tsangan, as well as shipping, all is paid for and it is all on its way to you sir, being sent and purchased from inlikeflynn

Thank you so much Bunny!!  Really, this is such a kind thing to do, and is greatly appreciated.  The drought is finally over!  :D
And a big thanks to flynn for offering to sell his Raindrop set, that was really awesome of you flynn.  Thanks to both of you!!

Also, congratulations to taaater! Welcome to geekhack and enjoy your prize!  :)

Congrats guys, and kudos Bunny!
It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

Grats Hoffman! You gotta finish that picture series though. We want to see it rain!

And thanks again to Bunny for this generous contest. I really liked that you picked a total newcomer for second prize to encourage him to dive into the world of keyboads and keycaps.

Really nice way of welcoming newcomers, although you technically broke your own rules by picking someone below 100 posts ;)

Grats to the winners, mad props and salutes to Bunnylake.

Did anyone check the timing on this rain dance, to see if it coincided with a certain keyboard in Brazil getting rained on?...

I would be so happy to flood my board with some Raindrop beauty.

A few months ago I completed my last rain dance, and was awarded a wonderful Raindrop set thanks to bunnylake and inlikeflynn.  My follow-up post is long overdue.

I have since relocated, but my keyboard has been blessed with the liquidy goodness of Raindrop!  Finally the drought is over and my keyboard can drink up those sweet sweet keycaps.


Soooo goooood.....

Now let's get it on a keyboard!  I dribbled out a few keycaps at a time.  Didn't want to flood the board and overwhelm it.


Looking good so far.  Now I just need to pour in the modifiers.


Final product.  Mmmm, so tasty.  Who knew a good rain was all a keyboard needed to grow so pretty?


I've opted to put a personal touch in addition.  Meet Lumber-Chap, defender of the Rain.




That's all I've got!  Thank you so, so, so much to bunny and flynn for the generosity.  I really appreciate this, and I love the caps!  :D
