Heh, that's been a notion I have had for a while. Opening an all-night shop somewhere in Silicon Valley that sold patch cords, memory sticks, disk drives, maybe even common router blades, optics modules, fans, etc. Sell it for a bit more margin than the going rate for the "day" shops and ONLY be open at night/early morning, say 7pm to 11am. Maybe do some "remote hands" work, too.
Fry's wanted $55 for a 1 meter LC-LC multi-mode patch cord yesterday at the store on Arques in Sunnyvale.
