LOL - yea there ya go Lefty!

The last purchase I got had a link to a Rat Shack comment site, I told them they were of little use to hobbyists anymore and they should change their name to "Phone Shack".

That was pretty much the case for a long time, but I think they have gradually seen the error of their ways. Have you seen the selection of Arduino stuff and other micro-controller stuff they now carry? Pretty impressive for a walk in place that has a zillion outlet stores.

Yep, I was just there yesterday. The Arduino Uno (not a kit - just the Uno) was $69.  :smiley-eek:

Must be a very greedy non-company owned franchise outlet store? Mine has it for $29.99, same as their mail order price:
