Following is an excerpt from the Apartmenttherapy.com site with the hoodes.com reference:

2005_3_14_duralex.jpg Internet power!. Looking for Duralex glasses over the weekend, we ran into this great little weblink: Search for a 12oz Duralex Juice Glass - The Search has ended! .

Because Duralex glasses are so great (and last so long) and are not readily available in all designs in the USA, this fellow, Michael Hoodes, put up a photograph of the last of his original 6 Duralex glasses and asked the world where he could find more. It took awhile, but many tips later, a fellow in Finland found a few boxes in his basement and sold him one box of 6, making Michael totally happy. MGR
