Not only is the Gaffney warehouse fantastic, sometimes their prices are 
drastically better. I bought some Panasonic PIR sensors from them a 
while back for about 2/3 the Digikey price. So cost conscious folks 
should definitely check Newark. And they have historically been the go 
to source for Raspberry Pi. Thanks for the reminder, Kevin.

Actually, I was going to include a remark about Newark but got lazy. My 
problem with Newark is that a fair fraction of the time that octopart 
says they have stock when I go to their web site that stock turns out to 
be in the UK. You only have to be in a hurry once and click through on 
autopilot and then suffer the extra 5-7 days for this to be a hard 
learning experience. I mostly ignore them, but the larger reason is they 
didn't use bar codes my database understands (haven't checked more 

-Pete (with the correct email account: more laziness!)
