I live in the city and don't really know where to shop for anything more elaborate, complex or rare than what RatShack carries. There used to be some interesting electornics shops here (thirty) years ago, but I am aware of none since I have lived here. Can someone steer me in the right direction? A place where I can get cable connections that are not exactly standard would be nice, or DSPs or even quad nor gates, for goodness' sake.

Thanks in advance.
Also, let me know if this is inappropriate for this forum (seems to be, but I've been wrong before).

Is Mike Quinn's still at the Oakland Airport? Transistors by the pound and core memory by the square inch.
