NO, my local Radio Shack was unable to help me.
Also, I feel EB2K should make good on what they sell and live up to their promise on their web site of:
"We at Easybuy2000.com thrive on Customer Service. We will always be here if you need help, by phone or by E-mail. If you have any problems with anything, don't hesitate to contact us! We promise to be there for you."
However, the only email address they list is email@example.com, and their phone (even during EST hours) goes to voice mail after a minute of elevator music, and they never seem to address help tickets.
Yeah, I might have to use the excellent Llamma's site to get a pin header, but really, I shouldn't have to.
I did track down that the company is really doing business as Easybuy2000.com but is really "Mod Chip America" from Champlain, NY.
First I searched the Canadian Better Business Bureau, which led me to the Upstate New York Better Business Bureau.

Wow, I guess I should have searched them BEFORE I bought from them.
Here is what the BBB says about them:
"Based on BBB files, this company has an unsatisfactory record with the BBB due to unanswered complaint(s)."
ALL BE WARNED
If they turn out to make good on their 100% joke, then I will reply to this message and let you know what happened.
