Yeah well tell that to all the people that return memory to Fry's because
it's crap. Maybe it's grey market, mis-marked crap, but it's still crap.  I
know more people that buy more crappy DRAM at Fry's that is supposed to be
PC100 or PC133 and it simply doesn't work.

And these people are Silicon Valley h/w types that KNOW what static can do
to parts.
