Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

Fry's has them for $9.99, I grabbed a few the other day at that price.

I wish there were a Fry's close to me. The closest one is a 5 hour drive. Fry's is mostly in California and Texas, with a few stores in other states. Here is a link to an 8 foot cable that our best buy carries:

And if $64 is not expensive enough, for $104 they also carry this monster cable:

Circuit city did have this one for only $60:

Unfortunately those are about the only choices a lot of us have any more, excluding online. Just to be clear I live in St. Louis, which is not exactly out in BFE.

Also It would not hurt to have your eyes checked by a doctor, some eye conditions may cause eye strain or headaches.
