Who was the person in question? Perhaps they could be persuaded to swap. I could even bribe them with some AEK II caps if needed.

It was some guy in Belgium or France... I believe the name was pikapika or something. Had a cool avatar, but can't remember what.

Him! http://geekhack.org/member.php?u=2606

He is online right now, give it a try. He got a "Costar ALPS keyboard with grey strongman switches" from me at the same time you got the SGI. You have his strongman keycaps, he has your SGI ones.

While I wait for the Leopold to come out all I can think about is which keycaps I want. >.>
GUUUH. These or the groupbuy on GH...

I think I like these keys more.

Keep in mind that the spacebar will not fit, no matter which of the two sets you pick. So that will always look weird on the Leopold.

Yeah, I don't mind that sooo much. I think if the whole bottom row is just Leopold keys it won't stick out too much. Kinda like how \KL's black Cherry board looks with the white caps.

Guess I'll just find out. Hm... Wish I could see one before choosing. xD

Alright well, don't know if anyone else cares but I found a similar key set to the GH group buy on a FC200R.
Not sure if it actually is one of the older group buys or just a copycat. Weird that it seems to have a gray space bar too?

In case I'm not the only one. >.>

You're getting things mixed up ;) The Koreans ordered replicas of the Dolch keycaps at signature plastics, pictures traveled over the Internet, which inspired some people on geekhack.

Ah, that makes more sense I s'pose. : )

I like how it looks on there anyway. Except for maybe a couple keys that look out of place.

Are you still looking for a set of Cherry doubleshots? (beige)

Yes! : )

Similar to the vintage ones or are those considered white?

Er, yes, just yes. Looked at the pics you posted earlier and you mentioned they're more beige-like. I have a bad memory. : )
