7/18/00: This is somewhat of an odd question, but I can't seem to find these things on my own. Basically, I'd like to know where to buy a bunch (50? 100?) of plasticized twist ties, 6-8" long. The local Fry's, Radio Shack, and Home Depot don't carry such things, and that's where I'd expect such things to be carried.

Why I'd like them: I've got a ton of cables around, behind, and near my computers at home. A lot of computer cables (especially power, monitor, and other external cables) are sold with such twist ties on them, so I know they exist. However, I want more. The paper-coated twist ties at the local supermarket are too short and flimsy for my tastes. I also don't want those "locking" nylon ties that pull tight into a clasp-- those things are impossible to remove later. Twist ties uninstall easily.
