      Hmm... I seem to remember bringing a certain Digtal system from
      Pearl River to InfoAge, just so you could have access to it...

      I had no interest in the machine, but because I was closer to it
      than you, I was willing to "relay" it.

      So I think your answer to #2 is "INVALID".

      To all: I still think that having people doing pickups close to home
      then arranging a "relay" is more effective than everyone driving
      everywhere individually. Would depend on whether everyone can
      cooperate, and if people can resist grabbing things for themselves.

      If anyone needs a pickup in Northern NJ and subsequent "relay" to
      the south or west, let me know. If I have the time, I'll participate
      (without grabbing).
