        I would add to this another pet dislike I have for E-bilk (much better
name, BTW). To my eyes, they are in large part (sheer unmitigated greed
makes up the other part) responsible for the decline in quality and
quantity of equipment that used to show up at hamfests and other
electronic-oriented swap meets.
