What happened to the End key?
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís 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

What happened to the End key?

If i said i was trying to show off the MX Blues, i would be lying. Here the TL;DR

Bought keycaps off Taobao --> Seller was missing the key in the "Q" position. Moved END Key to Q so i could type on keyboard.

Lets just hope he answers my query and sends that single cap soon.  :-[

I didn't know blanks were key-specific.  I thought they were just row-specific :))

The caps came in a vacuum sealed plastic bag, in complete order. There was a missing key where the Q cap shouldve been :3

Aha!  That explains a lot ...
