I think if nothing else Sparkfun should limit it to previous customers, just to reward loyalty.

Toner is nothing but very small beads of polyester.  Normally the fuser in the laser printer heats those beads until the melt and fuses them onto the paper.  When you print on the special transfer paper, that layer of polyester does not bond with the paper is able to be transferred to the board and acts as the etch resist.  (If I understand the process correctly)

I had an order out with one particular vendor that been out there waiting for 75 days.  I've sent multiple e-mails to them (including several to request that the order be canceled) that have gone unanswered.  I also tried to call them, there was no answer. Well lo and behold, on Friday last I get an e-mail advising me that my order had been shipped and that it would arrive in 7-10 days.  Sheesh!  Some people have no clue about customer service.  I'd have less of a problem waiting an interminably long time if I were given the courtesy of being informed that there was a delay and not that I had just pitched my money irretrievably down a black hole!

No need to apologize for rambling.  I did after all ask, so you're giving me exactly what I asked for.  Thank you!

I'm not a total newb to electonics, but I am a bit of a newb to arduinos and microcontrollers in general.  I have played with Basic  Stamps, then happened on PicAxes and Arduinos.  So I do understand the need for level conversion.

Hey all!  

Being a bit new to all of this, I've been perusing the internet looking at goodies that I could buy.  I've purchased a number of items from Sparkfun.  They arrived quickly and in order -but- there were a few items I was looking at from other vendors.  Does anyone know if these vendors are legit?  What are their reputations like?  I was thinking of buying some things from FundamentalLogic, Futurlec and Modern Device.  Can anyone give me a review of these businesses?  I'd appreciate any input you could provide!
