“Hello”, and for those who do not know me, “Greetings”; (seasonal or otherwise)
My name is Rene Milne, and I post internet wide as “whitedragem”.
You may have seen one of my comments, generally they are pretty long and easy to skip...
My creed is that when I give advice for free I generally give that much effort, my posts are usually longwinded and unedited; there is no doubt that they would benefit from a review process, a restructure and being shortened to be ‘succinct’ or tight.
Today I want to do something.
Call this an exercise in the power of belonging to a community, or the strength of power in numbers.
What I have done is recorded a short video as the sun rose today (‘Christmas’, for many).
The video cuts abruptly as the recording medium was filled. It serves a basic purpose and that is to have me start a project and commit to serving humanity.

I want Drop pundits to be the only people given a link to this video. (I...
If and when you bring back the SMSL SU-8 DAC can you please make it available in BLACK? That would make a great Special Drop Edition. I don't even see a forum to request product features. Maybe I am missing something. Has there ever been a way to do this before? Does anyone know if there is a way to make feature requests on this site?
Let’s talk about International E-Commerce Shipping!
There’s a common misconception that International shipping at Drop is “slow and awful”. We want to take a moment to provide some details (and data!) about how International E-commerce shipping works, and what the experience looks like from end to end.
When people think about courier services delivering packages, they typically think of a Fedex (or UPS, or DHL) truck picking up the box, putting it on a Fedex truck, flying to another country, putting it on another Fedex truck, and then finally delivering it to your doorstep. This is known as end-to-end delivery, and it’s an amazing and incredible service that is extremely expensive.
For example, a 20x30x15cm box that weighs 1.5 kg (this is the typical metric dimensions of a headphone or keyboard shipment) going from NY, USA to London, UK costs $240 for 5-day end-to-end service via Fedex. That is the retail rate charged to a customer that walks into a Fedex depot. For large businesses that ship a lot, you can...
I had mistakenly bought a Drop + Matt3o MT3 Susuwatari Custom Keycap Set and i file a ticket to the support to cancel the order(unable cancel at transaction as it status is already reserved for shipment). But there isn't any reply after that, can anyone help?
What's your question? It's "Why copy Google when they are so wrong so often?"
What happened to the "keep me logged in" option when logging in? I used to be able to interact quickly with the site. Now I have to spend time figuring out or looking up login ID and password information, so I usually don't bother.
And how does "What's your question?" indicate that I'm supposed to type a "Title" in the same place those words already occupy, so I don't get an error message when I try to send my question? The real error is making people type words where there are already words. Although this has become a trend of late because Google started doing it along with all their other illogic, for anyone who thinks logically, this is so disgusting as to make you want to never come back to a site that requires it. This site has taken it to a new level by not even putting a box around the words so someone can guess it is a field to type in. ARRRRGH!
And "Choose the community" NO IDEA WHAT THAT MEANS! ARRRRGH!
As a bit of a pack rat when it comes to stickers and decals and things who buys a bunch of stuff from Drop, noticing that Drop is having people upload snaps of things they bought from Drop, and understanding the branding power inherent in having at least some of those snaps include that Drop sticker alongside the item, and frankly a few other reasons as well, I wonder if Drop wouldn't do itself a serious favor by paying for some small Drop stickers to be made and included with orders.
That's it. That's the entire idea.
