Remark: Unclaimed/Ej efterfrågad (whatever that means).
Return date: 1/10

How to proceed?

Me personally, I would'nt want to send it to phetto again.
Despite the possibility the post carrier didn't inform him, he still had the tracking ID + link from the beginning.
Carelessness of phetto lead to the return of the package.
I was in Holland and Italy for 8 days. I didnt get any notification before or after. I did not know about the tracking link. I'm sorry. I'm very very busy.. :(

I think Phetto should still get a turn (he participated fine in 002's Realforce Euro tour as I recall) but maybe he should pay for the bit when we cross the Atlantic!

He should receive it when it comes back to Europe, declared with true value, so he has to pay some amount of customs fees!

Success! The surprise pack crossed my doorstep a few minutes ago.

And what can I say ... it's amazing! I don't want to spoil it in any way, so I'll totally keep my mouth shut and won't say anything about what awaits you.

I have not decided on what to take out yet, and it will be a hard decision ... Will post a picture of what I took out later today or tomorrow.

In any case, @ne0phyte, I need your address. Please send it to MrInterface and me.

Big Thank You to MrInterface and those select few who already put something in. This is a fun idea.

LOL! When the package was in Sweden for some weeks, a Viking smuggled himself into the package.
:lol:

What is the white thing in the bottom right?

The viking is of course my personification approving of the loot. Image

The white thing are some keyboard silencer (or feel?) placebos I'd like to test. :geek:

Received the package today and I feel a little bit sad because I'm not using any MX keyboards at the moment :lol:

I already added a bunch of things and as soon as I have decided what to take I'll post a picture.

There IS some other stuff, but most things are/are for MX :P I will add a few non MX things, too.
Still unsure what to take, I'll post a pic tomorrow :mrgreen:

Here's what I took. Hope it's okay to take more than one thing (I added a lot more than that :mrgreen:)

PM is always the way to go. He better answer, because I'm next in line and I'm waiting on a little something to arrive here for me to add to the surprise. Don't want to have to hold things up.

Thanx.... That would be my job, but I'm a little pre-occupied by the Dutch Design Week this week....

Actually : that might be a good filter for initiatives like this :

To NOT PM the next one in the list, but to ask for the next address in this thread. If the next one is not following this thread, the interest in this item is low anyway.

Next round I'll implement this.... :-)

EDIT : Subscribing to this thread ( and getting mails when it is updated ) would be mandatory...

Sounds like a good idea. People who don't follow the thread are probably not too interested in it.
On the other hand it took months for this to finally take off... (= regular receive/send)

PS: If Hoggy plans to add more than a few keycaps he'll need a bigger package (current is ~22x18x10cm) :D
