I do kinda miss the "computer store". First it was a real store. Then, like when we lived in Houston, it was a guy with a mini-storage warehouse. He pulled up the door on Saturday morning - like Storage Wars - and we commenced to shopping. Cases over here, power supplies in that pile, stacks of mother boards, etc.
Maybe this will work - an ancient Doonesbury comic that shows how it was back then at the Computer Store. And to some extent, it's still like this.
