I've said it before...I'll say it again.

Scrap and surplus dealers are our friends. They get more cool hardware
and software than any hobbyist around, and if you get on the good side of
one, he will bring forth many wonderful things. Get on the bad side of
one (something it seems a lot of people on this list are itchin' to do),
and he will bring forth many wonderful things, but smashed with his

It should be noted that many dealers actively hang out on other lists
devoted to other hobbies, and there is rarely ever any trouble.
