Hey all,
I tested a bunch of power supply units (psu's) and optical drives at
Noisebridge back in the Fall of '13 when Al Sweigart had the good idea
of providing labels for testing these and all sorts of other usable
hardware. 
Are these labels still available for the Build Your Own Computer class /
community giving idea??
It seems to me that bottlenecks besides "the RAM problem" that can make
or break such events are having working m-brds w/ CPUs+coolers, having
tested and working psu's, and having various working add-on cards or
built-in connections (working graphics and wired/wifi NICs come
forefront to my mind).
