Digikey == Awesome

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 13 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

Digikey is my new best friend.

Digikey is the sixth largest electronics component supplier. [1] Think Radio Shack, but bigger, much bigger. I have their catalog on my shelf. Phonebook quality paper, a good inch and half to two inches thick.

I ordered three infrared receivers (PNA4601M, in case anyone was wondering) for this project I have on Friday afternoon last week. Using the least expensive shipping option, they arrived today! That’s sweet!
