So I've somewhat taken up the mantle for nationwide at the moment.
If there's enough NYC interest in and of itself, I'm sure it would be 
fine to do a breakoff order for NYC.

My thinking was get everything to Troy, then ship by small USPS flat 
rate box to people outside of Troy. Capital District people are welcome 
to get it from me directly (at a CDBUG meeting? :D See how I did that? :) )
