The web page has directions, and an (old) list of the inventory.  Be 
forewarned, their hours *blow*!  They are open Tues-Fri 10am-3pm, so basically 
you have to go during work.  (Which is fine for me, seeing as I work here :).  
Also, the 670/MP is not common place there, and was decent buy... you have to 
go often and keep tabs on what's there.  Also, they don't take cash (!) and 
have a funky tiered system of who can buy things when.  Check out the page for 
details.  OTOH, they sold a lot of 10 166Mhz Alpha's and a couple 233Mhz 
alphas for $200 because they couldn't make them boot, so it can really be 
worth your while to go there.
