Just to confirm - could you deliver this keyboard to this LAN?
Arriving on Thursday, will be just in time to go out again for the LAN delivery. I've adjusted the website to allow this to be pre-ordered now.

After many complaints about my audio I was planning to get a semi decent headset, didn't massively like the look of the usb ones (clearly my soundcards are at fault). So was looking for a usb headset, the only one I like the look of is not in the usb section, but comes with an adapter. The Corsair Vengeance 1100. Unfortunately, it has 3-4 days lead time, I can't imagine I'm going to be in luck to get that in time for the lan delivery?
Alternatively, does anyone have any suggestions for alternatives?
Not going to be able to get that Corsair headset here quickly enough now, sorry
Couple of others worth looking at, certainly I thought both the Creative Tactic 3D Alpha and Asus ROG Orion Pro sounded great and felt comfortable, and gives a couple of budget points to look at.

The mini-itx power supply you sold me in 2008 in the server died - bulgy capacitor plague. I demand sweeties as compensation for my lost uptime
(For those not in the know, between 2003-2009ish there were a lot of dodgy capacitors which went into lots of power supplies - not just PC's, also TV's and lots of consumer electronics. There were some in motherboards and graphics card affected too. I can reduce the risk of me getting caught with this sort of problem by buying quality PSU's which use quality components, but that's much harder with mini-itx. Kustom aren't at fault here, OEMs worked out they could save themselves a few pennies by using crap quality components and nobody really noticed until they started failing!)
heh, will have a look for some sweets to put in.
Was it as late as 2009 those were still in circulation? I'm aware of the rogue capacitors being around 10 years ago (rumoured it was someone who stole manufacturing info and then took it to a competitor got something wrong in the electrolyte formula) but thought they had all disappeared sooner. It's pretty much though why you now see motherboard manufacturers often detailing how good the capacitors are on their new motherboards. You wouldn't think this is something to boast about, but it's only because they were popping all over the place on their boards a decade ago...
