So, I got my order from Danscomp yesterday, and built up my wheels. Everything went together perfectly, and bonus, they included 4 extra nipples on top of the ones that I ordered.
Not too much that is applicable to mtbs, but there are a few things that go both ways, and the spokes are the cheapest I found anywhere. Would buy again!

Reason: couldn't find discount codes :(
Just curious, what length nipples did you get?
Looked like 16mm, but for the price, I didn't complain. They wound up being about as long on the outside of the rim as 12s on a non-eyeletted rim.
Problem with their 15-16mm nipples is that the threads start early, so you need to subtract a good 2mm from calculated spoke lengths as 10mm of thread will NOT allow the spoke end to reach the head of the nipple. That's a whole lot of tension potential lost.
