Hi Tim
 I agree about pulls, I've never had troubles with pulled parts,
like EPROMs but have had troubles with parts that are
otherwise suppose to be NOS.
 Still, a regular distributor doesn't even care many of the
parts that are no longer in production.
 My only complain with Jameco is that they don't make
the distinction between parts that are from NOS and those
that they are valid distributors for.
 At least when I go to a local surplus place, I know it is
all surplus.
