tech shopping...

There's some interest in CC26 doing tech shopping tours (in addition to the standard fabric/museum tours and the food & bev tours we've already got planned).

So let's talk destinations that would be open on a Thursday or a Tuesday (this knocks out Computer Recycling Center, as they're only open on Saturdays).

I know about:
Frys (yes, I don't get it, but people who don't have Frys idolize it for some reason)

HSC Electronic Supply (otherwise known as "Halted Specialties Company")

Weird Stuff Warehouse

Anybody else have tech/junk shops they can suggest?

There is, of course, also the option of a tour at the Computer History Museum too...

HSC - Just Checking
I have a HSC up here in Rohnert Park and was checking to see if each one come with an old guy with a long grey beard who has a big belly, wear suspenders and talks about back in the day when he used punch cards to play blackjack on his first computer?

I love HSC!

If you're still missing a guide
This is one thing that Marshall could do (my husband). He loves these places.

Re: If you're still missing a guide
I think that would be great. Drop a note to K at his chairman address. Main requirements are availability on April 24 and April 29, and planning.
