This is the vanilla firewire only card.

Yup. CompUSA generally has them (there's been a thread on the
local Linux mailing list with ``hide your wallets'' as the
subject -- we're getting our first Fry's store here shortly :-).

In Germany they first came for the Communists and I didn't speak up because
I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up
because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I
didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the
Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came
for me -- and by that time no one was left to speak up.
