Old desktop computer power supplies are an excellent source of components, if you don't mind "ratting" them.

Often easier and far less frustrating than driving to Jaycar just to buy a single resistor. And they have things like high current fast rise time low loss diodes, which Jaycar would charge heaps for, if they even stocked them.

We have Amazon too. Just not Yet. So it takes a few days to get things.

And those annoying merchants in the Amazon Marketplace who won't ship to New Zealand? That's why we have YouShop (, or look elsewhere in this blog).

And if you buy from Amazon through Geekzone, Geekzone gets a commission.

Welcome to NZ and to Geekzone!
