Where is the list?

Remove from list. They're an appliance store, not an electronics
components store. What they were 10 years ago isn't relevant now.

I find Farnell, oops Element14 (what a pain) rather good. Free shipping
from $75, and they're local. They tend to have more European components
and sure have a larger range than Digikey or Mouser. Downside is that
they are a bit more expensive than those two, but it's often a question
of getting it at all and added shipping costs. Slightly better prices if
you can use someone else's account.

Since 2009 ActiveComponents re-sell all Mouser parts, collating orders
and shipping for the cost from Auckland. It look slike one doesn't have
to have an account with Active:
