Hi Jason,

Sure. I got a note from another listmember who has three of the power
supply units, and we will be working out something so I can get them. When
I acquired these units, I told the guy if I did end up getting rid of them,
I would pass the money on to him, and by the time the power supplies get
here, there will probably be between $15 and $20 into them. I don't know
where you live, but probably at the most you are looking at about $10 UPS
shipping. Let me know if this is okay, and I'll put one aside for you.
