Folks (mostly Adam),

Hang on a sec.  I think I misread what my friend said.
Following is a snip of what he said was good; that this was among
the stuff he installed a few years back and now was much better::

> ALIX.2D13 system board - $115                                                 
> CompactFlash card 4GB SLC - $20                                               
> Enclosure - $9                                                                
> AC adapter - $13  

Is this the same board and so forth that Arthur pointed me at below?
My friend's name is Noah; what he saw was that the boad was not in
stock and that it would not be restocked until 20dec.   Because the 
15th is better for Noah to drive down, I would like to have the
stuff here when it's best for him.   Figure ther have to be other
vendors that sell this.
