Well, I bought a membership and expensed it out to $CURRENT_EMPLOYER, and
they pay for the parking too... but generally you'd be right.

There is one motherboard seller selling refurbs, clearly marked, and
ditto as maybe or maybe not functional. But a few things do carry a
warranty, and I see the same faces and company names almost every time
(especially the non-hardware guys like Hacker Hut). At least 50% of the
vendors are local and have storefront operations.

Russ, are you in Fort Knox? I see you mention the area from time to time,
we should get together sometime for a pizza at Impellizeri's...
