The Shack Answered

According to this article over at engadget, RadioShack is rebranding as "The Shack" and attempting to change their corporate culture. I wonder if this will be the end of components being available there? Not that I particularly enjoy paying $3.49 for an 8 cent LED, but sometimes you don't want to wait for it in the mail.

Yeah, and they do have a nice little assortment of PC boards at a decent price (for small projects)...I would hate to see the few components I can get locally when needed, go away altogether :-(

Of course....I still have (somewhere) a Tandy TRS-80 COBOL compiler on floppy (back when floppies were floppy ;-) and my CoCo II with matching tape player and floppy driver :-)

Dude, they killed them several long time ago with me. All they have now is junk and fetishes. No more cheap 555 or LEDs, housings, boxes, which now I buy on line and find that shipping is about normal for gas money and I get the right part at low cost. Some I get bundles, say LED in $.05 ea in 100 bundle. Animal, the shack now and has been bad for no goodies!
