Indeed.  I just had to put my hands on my GBICs and a module for a
4200vl on short notice, and conveniently, Network Liquidators is about
30 miles from me.  The sales rep, with the unlikely name of Bill
Billings (which isn't as unusual, admittedly, as Courtney Courtney),
was quite helpful and almost unreasonably solicitous.  I don't actually
know: is $200 for a new aftermarket multimode GBIC a deal?  :-)
