Regarding the Curtis 3310 and 3340 chips, OnChip is completely out of them, 
and PAiA has a limited supply, so if you think you need some, either for a new 
construction project, or as spares for your existing gear, better get 'em now.

On the other hand, if we all pool our resources, OnChip will make another run 
for a minimum order of 10,000 pieces(!), which seems excessive since they 
already own the masks.  I can't imagine it costs that much to do a another run 
of an existing chip, but, not being in the chip making bus, I may be all 
wet...
