I have been into software hacking for about 4 years now and would like to progress my knowlege in the field of electronics and physical computing. So I thought I would take an intermediate step and buy a programable microcontroller and found that arduino fit the bill, seeing as it is open source and has good guides and tutorials. The only problem is that I cannot download my resistors, capacitors and transisters.
So I thought I would assemble a list of all I needed in the way of common components (I have some just not nearly enough). This way I can proced through many tutorials one after another, instead of going out and buying one or two things each time I start a new tutorial.
And being the poor collage kid that I am, I would also like to know were I can get these at a decent price.
Thanks for your help! It means alot!
