I did. Not sure how much good it'll do, though. Apparently they get 20
or more units in each day. He claimed not to have time to go through
everything, and the store lacks the space to keep these things for very
long. The units on the shelf are out there for a week - unsold CPUs go
to the compactor. They have to keep turning things over to make room
for incoming gear. I left him a list of things to keep an eye out for,
though - he said he'd call if he came across anything.

For some reason, Denver seems to have a high number of thrift stores,
compared to some of the other cities I hear about. ARC has 10 or 12
stores, each with a computer/electronics section; DAV has 5 or 6, also
with a nice electronics corner; many 'independent' stores as well. I
get 90% of my gear from the local thrift industry. The only chain that
doesn't seem to keep / accept / make available, computers is Goodwill -
can't figure that one out.
