Yesterday I ordered 6 of the surface-mount IDE headers (DigiKey #S2208-22-ND) but only need 5 of them. If anyone needs one and wants to save a few bucks on DigiKey's under-$25 surcharge plus their shipping/handling, I'll let these five go at $6 each including shipping. This price will include postage and one of those 75 cent thick brown padded shipping envelopes. I think I'll come out 50 cents ahead each, so I promise not to spend it all in one place. (Actually, I'm being liberal this time around, because as I recall on the last parts deal I did I ended up around $5 in the hole. So wtf, I'll take out my revenge on my new Gateway friends.)
Ok, if you're interested, here's how it works. I will only have five to spare, so please do not PayPal me funds yet. Instead, register your interest here and also send me email (removed); then when I give you the go-ahead if you're one of the five, you can PayPal the money to that same email address. At paypal.com, you'll notice that I'm a "verified, premier PayPal member" so you're guaranteed a measure of protection if I go bankrupt and decide to buy an airplane ticket for Venezuela instead.
If there is some demand for actual soldering, I can do that as well, but that may not be cost-effective depending upon your situation (i.e., probably something like $15 or $20 for my time in busting it open, doing the work, and transporting it back to UPS; plus return shipping). If you find yourself in desperate straits in this regard, let me know. Frankly, though, I have a life and don't want to do more than one or two of these; anything more will severely piss off my wife. <img src="http://www.linux-hacker.net/UltraBoard/Images/Happy.gif" border="0" align="middle">
