agreed; on site ad-hoc cash purchases the best procurement technique.
not infallible by any means, but at least avoids some known problems
like this amusing scenario.

(shipments from the Seattle Amazon warehouse to Kansas before delivery
to Oregon was also funny.)

repeat for emphasis:
- keep chain of custody of sensitive hardware at all times
- never procure or ship through mail. at one point, priority same day
air would get a pass, but even this no longer suitable.

best regards,
