Yes, the parts are there for hacking!

That's fine, you can contribute dollars and we will put them to good
use.

But even better, if you notice something is running low, place a order
with Digikey or Mouser to re-stock the parts cabinet.  If you buy $20 of
components and put them in the right places at Noisebridge, you can use
resistors to your heart's content from there on out. :)

It's doocracy in action, the only trick is follow-through. :)  Make sure
the parts end up in well-labelled bins so that everybody else can find
them.  A pile of random parts in a Mouser box is a hundred times less
useful than those parts in a well-labelled cabinet.
