I wouldn't bet on the order getting here in a hurry, but that's OK with
me. :)

By my math it works out to $2.65 per diode, so I get 18 for a total of
47.60.  But we should probably assume that 5% of the order will be duds,
so maybe we should tack on a bit to cover losses.  Thoughts?

Maybe we should build a test rig to test out the shipment?  I'd be down
for helping with build and testing if anyone else wants to participate.
