   That reminds me of another funny Avi story.  Those that know him know 
that he's Jewish, and is fond of cracking Jewish jokes all over the 
place.  One day, he had a desperate and time-critical need for an x/110 
chassis (3-slot VME) for something he was working on.  He knew I had 
one, and he made the mistake of letting me know he was desperate.  He'd 
raked me over the coals on a number of deals over the years. so I 
really let him have it...my price went through the roof, and he paid it.

   What goes around, comes around.

   At the conclusion of that deal, when he gave me a check and picked up 
the chassis, he said "Dave, I'm gonna make you an honorary Jew for this 

   I laughed until I nearly peed myself!
