If you need some rg6 with connectors let me know

I have a
real problem with modern day greed, as seems so common
Yesterday I needed two short RG6 coaxial jumper cables with F
connectors on the ends. So I looked on the internet for 1 foot
cables. These are the common cables used with splitters for
television and satellite connections, nothing special.
The "cheapest" I could find was about $9 per cable with a
whopping $19 for shipping from the US. Two of these little
cables would have cost me $37.00 !
So we made a pair ourselves for less than a dollar.
Plus I needed a toner cartridge for my laser printer. The
cheapest I could find was $35 for a new one, including shipping.
Call me surprised. but while looking, I came across a listing
for "used & empty" cartridges for $36 PLUS $18 SHIPPING. They were advertised as
REFILL YOUR OWN.....
Goes to show, it's still buyer beware.
