He's so cheap that...

There's some advantage in being a tightwad. Your gadget money tends to go further. Friends know that I watch the local clearance bins like a hawk. I occasionally turn up some interesting stuff.

Example 1: The local Walmart dumped their shelf of Linksys PAP2's for ten bucks a pop. I donated them to Sploitcast and they were (mostly) given away at this year's Shmoocon.

Example 2: I just picked up an ATI HDTV video card for thirty bucks. I think the little OTA antenna may be missing but the price was low enough to be interesting.

Now my only problem is that I'm running out of slots.
