Thanks for the tip!
This was always one of those, "I'd like to have one", items for me, but I
never even thought of Ebay, as I've never bought "anything" there before.
I found a lot of auctions, and one that was ending in a few minutes, so I
plopped in a $15 maximum bid. I won the thing for less than $12, and the
seller is local to me. I'll be picking it up today :-)
