barbaBob asks: "Where to get parts for discontinued hardware when the vendor itself is not an option? I myself am currently looking for parts for an Apple Network Server 500/700 which are harder to find than most, especially in Europe. It amazes me that there seems to be no sites dedicated to this kind of stuff, and no ways of finding it except for keeping an eye on the hardware section at eBay or calling/e-mailing used hardware dealers. Anyone got any pointers/suggestions? (For Sun/Alpha equipment, this Slashdot thread might help)."
That's the thing about people who think they hate computers. What they
really hate is lousy programmers.
