I didn't even realize he was gone until someone mentioned it elsewhere. I'll miss his endless supply of snark and obscure spares.

How do I buy one of them there Raise the Lowered stickers?

edit: Derp, I am an idiot and missed the link.

I know I'm going to miss seeing his name. I saw the email and dropped what I was doing.

I never got a chance to meet him. My condolences to the family.

Stickers update:

I got the first batch of decals from Dana + already received a lot of the full color stickers, so order fulfillment will start in the next few days. There's easily 70+ orders right now -- It's just going to be me and my better half getting these packed and shipped, plus I don't have enough to fulfill everything yet, so please bare with us as stuff continues to get sorted out.

To that tune, we've sold nearly 300 stickers in total, along with a lot of donations on the store. So I don't have an exact figure yet after expenses, but the combined sales have helped raise a lot of money. I do plan on publishing that figure once I have it calculated and know what it actually is.

I will likely close off ordering in a week or so, so if you want to get some stickers now's the time.

You can either buy a single sticker and donate to the gofundme or add as many of this item to your cart as you want. https://www.threedogstickers.com/col...cts/5-donation

Thank you for everybody who bought stickers.

I'm going to temporarily shut off ordering while I fulfill the orders. Once I have all the current orders packed & dealt with, I'll reopen it with whatever I have left.

The proceeds from the stickers will get run through the GoFundMe once I've got everything sorted out.

After all is said and done, I just placed a $750 donation with the proceeds from the sticker sales. That pushes us up to $6250 on the GoFundMe. A big thank you to all those who purchased stickers & I will get the website updated later this evening for those who may have missed out.

Stupid question about applying the stickers. What's the best way to put them on and get them to stay? Specifically the Raise the Lowered one, if they're different. Don't want them to fall off.

Very saddened to hear this. Was a wealth of information that man, and always a source for used parts. RIP Ken

Apply the translucent tape that holds the decal together to the window with firm pressure, working all air bubbles out. Then, peel one corner, and work it off gently in a see-saw motion, so the decal remains in place on the glass. It's actually pretty easy to apply them and they will stay on the window, as long as someone doesn't decide to peel the letters off.
