Yes, there was some kind of a group purchase setup in February or maybe
January where when you would order online from Silverware, you would put in
the comment field that you were part of NewtonTalk and you would be charged
$45 instead of $85, which is quite a good deal. I still think that MI at $85
is way overpriced, but that's just my opinion...

I guess we could write to Lisa of Silverware to check...

fat electrons n.: Old-time hacker David Cargill's theory on the causation of
computer glitches. Your typical electric utility draws its line current out
of the big generators with a pair of coil taps located near the top of the
dynamo. When the normal tap brushes get dirty, they take them off line to
clean them up, and use special auxiliary taps on the bottom of the coil.
Now, this is a problem, because when they do that they get not ordinary or
`thin' electrons, but the fat'n'sloppy electrons that are heavier and so
settle to the bottom of the generator. These flow down ordinary wires just
fine, but when they have to turn a sharp corner (as in an integrated-circuit
via), they're apt to get stuck. This is what causes computer glitches.
