Wiseleo, do you work at Frys?
No. I doubt they can afford me.
I live very close to one and spend an awful lot of money there. While I do have wholesale accounts with the likes of TechData, it is faster and usually cheaper for me to grab something at Fry's. That especially applies to hard drives since I prefer not to keep a stock of this perpetually depreciating inventory.
I don't know about you, but I got tired of looking for various components to make an RS-232 board, so I simply remembered seeing the SchmartBoard things on display and figured they would work quite well.
If I wanted to have some real fun, I'd probably think of firing up my dusty Cisco 2511-RJ box that I used as a terminal server for my Cisco cert with 16 serial terminals. Hmmm... That is actually not a bad idea! 16 serial ports for 16 hard drives... A 2509 might also be interesting.
I know the store layouts for at least 4 locations well enough to walk in, buy what I need, and walk out in about 10 minutes.
