Revenue from the Web-based efforts (which is Egghead's focus now and in the future) is up 41% sequentially to $21.1 million vs. $15 million last quarter.

    Overall EGGS revenue, which includes catalog and call center revenue that Egghead cut back on, drops to $29.5 million from $56.2 million the same quarter last year.
