This is not in you area, but FFR in LA across the street from one
wilshire, Lightsource1 has a small storefront.  They stock GBICS, fiber,
copper, various Cisco bits (backed by a stockpile of larger stuff).  There
is a phone number posted for the "It's 2am and I need $part right now"
times.  Rumor has it they will soon have free coffee and wireless.

Let's face it, there's no Hollow Earth, no robots, and
no 'mute rays.' And even if there were, waxed paper is
no defense.  I tried it.  Only tinfoil works.
