3 xbee's, 2 of the boards with level shifters, 3 breakout boards for them, 2 of their 4 digit led displays - blue and green, and some headers for the arduinos.

About $120 of stuff, $27ish shipping so about $50something NZ on paypal.

Was sucessfull in a browser with the business paypal details saved in it so will have to explain that to the business partner today.. oops.

I had 3 firefoxes open in different profiles, F5 on it if it said connecting. If it said connected to sparkfun.com then it would either give a blank page or time out after ages. If it stayed on connecting then it would time out sooner so may as well refresh if it didnt go connected to within a half second or so
