I've been looking in the Yourduino shop, assuming that one S&H charge goes for a whole order.
I do have little to medium size bags of some parts but missing many I need and/or want.
I kind of like the Starter Kit: Electronics Components + Displayshttp://arduino-direct.com/sunshop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=109
I want to add 1 ea of the bags of caps they sell, the 20-ea assortment of 5% resistors, the 100x220 ohm resistors, an led assortment and maybe a few $ of those 4-lead RGB leds because whew, they have possibilities!
I have many mixed wall warts but at a 12V at their prices couldn't hurt.
I also want at least 2 ATTiny85's and Mouser has the best price so maybe they have better deals on caps, etc.
I -definitely- want at least 2 of these: Micro SD Card Adaptor -- assuming it won't take a lot to use!http://www.pjrc.com/store/sd_adaptor.html
If I wait, they might be gone!
I'm going to agonize about a Teensy++ but not buy one yet. Same with a USnooBie though there's a real draw for one of those too.
I need a multimeter as I can't find my real one, haven't seen it in a long time. I made the mistake of buying a Centon at Harbor Freight (dunno where my brain was, probably out looking for me or just stayed home) and OMG put the thing to test resistance, touched the leads together and it gives me positive values! WTF? What a POS! There's a trimmer inside the case and it makes no difference as far as a zero. But then, there is a trimmer inside the case, and an LCD, a 9V battery clip, etc. So my money isn't -totally- wasted.
I was looking at one of these Velleman # DVM850BL as it looks like it will do and I have another purchase to make at Allelectronics, and they do charge only once for S&H.http://www.allelectronics.com/make-a-store/item/DVM-850BL/3-1/2-DIGIT-LCD-MULTIMETER-W/BACKLIGHT/1.html
I'll probably think of some other bits in the next day or two but that list stretches the hobby budget already.
