I still remember my shock when I found a wire-wrap tool at the Rat Shack at the big area mall, in 2000.  I'd been looking for one for a couple years.  

I needed some parts recently.  Their selection of Resistors was horrible, and this was at the best remaining Rat Shack in the area.  Their prices were even worse.  We used to have a store called Norvac in the area, but they went out of business, and the place that went in near where they used to be seems more interested in Arduino's.

I really hate having to order parts.
