I really wanted to take an outside picture but Chicago has been warm so there's no snow.  :(

Same here. No snow on the ground.  :(

Is filling my living room with fake snow worth it? I'm thinking yes!

It's worth it if people get a laugh out of it :)

I will tomorrow morning!

I made a treeboard with my Type-S and Duck Viper. On top of the two is some clacks and stuff and under the tree is some vintage blacks, Cherry caps and some #goldsprings

Also, F2 tree ornament!

Here's my crappy submission. My roommate went home for the week so I had to take a selfie, we don't have a Christmas tree, and I'm not creative. So tough noogies, all of ya.  :P  note the festive spirit in the photo (all of the lights from ever) and the keyboards that are permanently on display in my living room on those metal tables. That's right, I take up half my living room to display my keyboards.  :))

Meh, his collection so small.

However, he did put his camera on the ceiling for that selfie. Wasn't even a reach for him. Props to Hoff for ceiling selfie.

Congratulations Booper, Infiniti and asdfjkl36 :D

And a big thank you to Sent for running the competition in the first place :)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s 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

P.S. a Hakko is a great investment!  My 936 is still going strong! (knocks on wood)
