I heard that Computer Recyclers at Harry & Woodlawn has closed his 
business.  When I went there to see what he had, the stuff was more 
expensive than the internet and not what I expected to see for used & 
surplus computer parts.  Christian Dimention has also closed its outlet 
part of the store.  They wanted $30 for a 2gb laptop hard drive-- I had 
to pass on that deal.  The only other surplus store that I know of is 
Wichita PC recycling.  They have new and used stuff.  Brian, the owner 
was one of the vendors at the Second Saturday Sale who decided to move 
to Wichita and settle here.  He sometimes has older parts that I need 
for various computers, like pc66 memory for the Dell desktops that I 
aquired from Rick Borders.
