My distributor was temporarily out of stock so I tried to do some biz
w/ these guys recently.  They kept pushing Intel, Intel, Intel...
Prices were way higher than I could get elsewhere and they told me in
not so many words that I was too small time to be of much interest to
them.  A few hundred nodes might pique their interest but one certainly
didn't.  Did talk w/one of their tech guys for about an hour or so and
he was quite knowledgeable and helpful.  Experience w/sales dept. was
just the opposite.  Arrogant would sum it up...
