Just look again next week!

Ebay is an amazing movable feast of stuff. No, I don't think we are 
driving prices up, down or sideways. But ebay isn't DigiKey, you can 
get anything you want - but maybe not today.

Also think laterally. A few months ago I needed something like an HP 
10811 10MHz oscillator, at the time they were going for near $100, so 
I bought a 5328 counter with the high stab option for $27, pulled the 
module out and sold the carcass for $15 for parts.

Keep hunting, you will find them.
