How are you keep paying for all those? A lot of you guys have to be broke but sitting on a pile of caps! O_o

Yep sitting on a pile of Caps..... that's the only way to live  ;D .

Kinda uncomfortable though.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thats incorrect. Its in HHKBs slogan, but when Americas cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Not if you've got a bean-bag  :thumb: .

Also glad Sherryton is waiting till end of December for payments here because I've got a BIG Honeywell order to pay off soon.

That's an excellent idea what to do with all those random keycaps from the Crap Bag!

Glad to see the tiered prices!
Just would like to ask if there is also a tiered price for "Full Set" of Handarbeit and Cyrillic?

Good but it currently means nothing to me because Paypal isn't accepted.  Not complaining because there's so many key-caps up for grabs in a lot of great Group Buys.

I hope the Handerbeit GB comes off nicely for everyone here  :thumb: .  Needless to say Sherry's in charge.

Pretty sure you could probably talk with someone and pay them via whatever you will be able to and they make an order for you.

Just placed the group buy order. I'm on board (pun intended) with this handarbeit set. Already ordered another QFR to go with this set.

It'll be a LONG wait but I'll have the classic beige and this by end of February?

Was wondering since there are a lot of white on red keys, how much would it cost to get the remaining keys to make it a complete white on red set.

Seriously doubt that would happen, Sherry would need to order 400 sets of the extra keys.
It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

True,

I already have the red arrow cluster and shifts from EK. And hopefully the red spacebar from Ivan.

So just a few keys more.... :)

You got that right pal  :thumb: .  When GMK makes it all will clamor to behold it's brilliance.  Unfortunately I buried myself so deep into Honeywell, I fear I need a cadaver dog to dig me out of it.

I wish Sherry could hold payment deadlines for this until end of January 2014, but I know that's just a deluded pipe dream.  So sorry to miss out on this BRILLIANT looking baby, because late at night when I try to sleep the thought of missing out on this, will chill me to the bone for years to come  :'(

Damn, I was holding out for Handarbeit till I got some more money from some of my recent sales. Sad that it won't come through anymore.

I already paid for this and rgby. I would like sherry to post details as to how he intends to spend our money.
What MOQ tier did we hit?
Why did you delete the page instead of mark it out of stock and unavailable for purchase?
By deleting the page now I can not go back and look at the set options I selected when I bought it. all I have is a total amount spent with no details as to which expansion sets I bought.

That's a shame.

Due to financial considerations, I postponed entering this, but heard a rumour of its cancellation a little while ago.

Sherry told me when I asked if I could pay through paypal. But I didn't want people panicking and asking back for their money so I never mentioned it here.

If this ever does get a second chance I will gladly be part of it.

That's good, it means everything is on the up.  Hence now it's the wait for the SECOND Group Buy session.

Sherry has never ripped me off and he was truthful when a problem arises, rather than keeping quiet like some on other GB merchant site  ::)
