For FOSS4G2007, the supplier quoted on the number
of PCs we needed, but we required the actual shipment
of that number plus some "spare" CPUs, monitors,
keyboards, mice, cables, etc. We did use most of the
spares, either because some 'bits and pieces' were
DOA, or because of failures during the week.

Also, fairly late in the process OSGeo piggybacked
on our PC order to get some(5-6) PCs that they
could use for their internet cafe in the Exhibit hall.
