I have plenty of kit available, most of it for shipping, but it is 
all fairly un-interesting to many on this list. If you want an Ultra 
1 or 2, drop me a note - an Ultra 2 weighs about 40 pounds packed, 
and I can ship from 08534 via FedEx Ground from a service counter 
(no MailBoxes Etc. fees)...

Let me know if you want an Ultra 1 or 2 - I've reached out to a 
recycler to possibly dispose of my excess hardware (my wife really 
wants the basement back ;^)...
