I've never seen any space invaders over here, especially not the cursed kind. A beautiful board. I'd just hope that it goes to someone closer, since shipping anything large or heavy here is quite costly.

Update: 27 Feb
Several people have expressed disappointment that the keyboard is no longer cursed. I can re-curse the keyboard upon request. I will leave this up to the winner. If you win, just let me know, "I would / would not like the keyboard cursed".

I wonder if a cursory curse would be an approppriate compromise.

Man, When did the mechanical switch stop being scratchy by themself lol. Even Alps cannot stop scratchiness unless you open up the switch and clean them.

This would be strictly a firmware-level curse.

Edit: a "HEX" if you will :lol:

Sounds interesting! Would you have an optional curse removal talisman should we grow weary of the curse?

Yep, it's an internal Soarer's converter so you'd just use the SCWR tool to write a blank config to the converter and the curse would be removed.

Snacks: Take this keyboard, but beware it carries a terrible curse...
Ooooh, that's bad.
Snacks: But it comes with 122 keys!
That's good.
Snacks: The extra keys are also cursed.
That's bad.
Snacks: But you get a Soarer's Converter!
That's good.
Snacks: It's been programmed with a randomized scb file.

Snacks: That's bad.

Last call for raffle entries. Winner gets selected at ~5pm central time today (depends when I get home).

If 3 more people enter before the drawing, I’ll message the original buyer and ask him if he cursed the keyboard.

I don't need it but put my name in just for fun. If you draw my name, please, draw again.

The bit about the curse or "hex" made my day.

A board that size is the opposite of Reddit's collective taste anyway :P

Alright so I apparently messed up the guy's refund so I'm not going to be messaging him my crazy nonsense We're now squared away and the refund has been issued. Unless people really feel the need to see me make a fool of myself.

In exchange I'll offer to dye the keyboard and keycaps black if the winner is interested in this.

Anyways, going to gather the names together and chose the winner shortly. Got home a little after I expected so it will be later than I had hoped.

The risk is that you'd only turn it brown. Black dye is so finicky.

I did it successfully with iDye Poly before and it turned out really cool (on one of the televideo boards). I have faith that it'd work out nicely. There was another guy who posted his method for dyeing the case with something else but I'm not able to find that post at the moment.

How does it feel now that the burden of the cursed keyboard has been lifted from your shoulders?
