Oh butts I sent that before I proofread.
I'm in the Pacific Northwest, about three or four hours east of Vancouver
BC. I have access to freight services should you take that route but for
your wallet I'd strongly recommend some sort of local or negotiated pickup.

Yes, that's me and those are the readers.

That bloody EDAC connector is not cheap. I ended up sourcing one for like
$60. On the other hand you can hunt around for scrap 50 conductor telco
cable and you're all set for cabling. You can usually get it for its weight
in copper from a scrapyard.
