    Hi hgmjr & john,

    as a suggestion can we not put out online stores according to region? maybe that would be easier for anybody to id where he can easily access his/her needs. the issue sometimes with this stores is they have usually minimum orders, the person does not own a credit card, the freight cost is sometimes higher than the parts cost.

    For UK based components:

    RS Components

    I concur with moz, if you are suggesting a local store please emphasise this in your post. This way for those looking through for quick information will be able to filter out the stores according to location. Thanks.

    Another good source of electronic parts is the electronics
    flea market. I probably wouldn't buy ICs or electrolytic caps there
    but resistors, connectors, mechanical parts are usually OK.

    In Boston there is a flea market at MIT the third Sunday of every month
    from April through October. Information is at http://web.mit.edu/w1mx/www/swapfest.shtml

    There is schedule for New England electronic flea markets at
    http://web.mit.edu/w1gsl/Public/ne-fleas

    (* jcl *)

    Happy Euler's Birthday. There is a free Pi poster on my
    website www.luciani.org

    you need to send a request for the required ic.
    they are very helpful in sending all u need is to login into their site and give them necessary details. regarding how to make a request u can find info on their site.

    I believe all you need to go to the section on the TI website for the part you are interested in and click on the "sample" button.
