That was my next place to look. Surly curmudgeonly waiters are familiar to
those of us who grew up in New York City and regularly visited Katz's,
Carnegie, and other delis. It's part of the 'charm.'

Now I'm looking for a 30cm/1ft cable. Shipping costs for the $0.64 item
would likely be 5-10 times that amount.

Perhaps I'll make a list and then drive out to Hillsboro -- after morning
commute traffice across Portland has thinned some.
