Wayside Technology Group, Inc anyone?

This is a new name for me. It hit the screen and my random number when I ran the screen today for April purchases.

Any one here ever come across this company or have opinions about the business?

It has an itty bitty market cap of $66M. They're building a good looking dividend record with reasonable payout ratio (4.5% and 54% respectively).

My top 3 by random pick today were:
GTAT (already holding)
WSTG (mulling it over)
DELL (mulling it over)

I spotted SAIC when I took a prelim look at the MFI screen a couple days ago. I'll buy that company just for GP -- don't know if it's fair to track it as part of my MFI portfolio since it didn't get bought based on falling in my random number block.

I have some personal knowledge of the business (family & friends employed there) but have never found an entry point or even tracked it that closely. Just that I see it as sort of an 'off the radar/unknown mini-bluechip.'
