 i don't! ok we are negotiating with amphenol to restart the
micro-hdmi part line, but other than that and molex, i couldn't find
another supplier.  molex is easy (and expensive) - phone them up and
get it.  but you pay $1.30 which is far too much.

 the LCD - again, no supplier: that's the whole point, we are having
difficulty tracking down suppliers, so we don't have one!  the
previous part we found which was supposed to be $18, it turns out it
is no longer manufactured.  i suspect that there are still cartels on
LCD pricing, they may have been leaned on.  or, they just priced too
low and got into trouble - you just never know.
