As per the title, the keycaps have gone through and are on their way to my door again! Nightmare delay mostly averted!

I asked for the fastest possible shipping so I could receive the keycaps on Dec. 28th, and assemble them over the next two or three days to ship out before New Year, but my package is temporarily stuck in customs and tonight I had to call up DHL to provide the extra information. This is the first package I have ever had from my parts supplier to actually get stuck in customs. So keyboard shipping is now 100% dependent on how quickly my keycaps can pass through customs.

Power and internet are both back. Have some cleanup left to do: In the meantime, preorders have now filled up enough of the first batch that I was able to place an order to produce some proper injection molded keycaps right before the storm hit. This will slightly lengthen the time it takes to get the first units out, but will dramatically decrease the time it takes for future batches to be made. I can now solidly say I'll have all first-batch orders shipped out before the end of this year because I don't need to worry about the finicky CNC mill anymore....
