Ok you guys did notice the number on the shirt of the basketball player at the very end right....I mean.....need I say more SmileySmiley

Very cool but what do they mean ? Are they getting back (more) parts? I was at a Radio Shack a couple of years ago and actually, from a European point of view they had a lot of electronics parts still for a "high street" or big mall shop. Won't find that here anywhere, need to go to "hidden" specialized stores for things like resistors and caps.

I do remember Radio Shack once tried to set foot in the Netherlands back in the early 80s....I think the stores were called Tandy here, which is their house brand. We loved the catalogues but I don't remember actually ever being something there....
