I knew that much, at least. I was being silly including it. (:

Can anybody suggest a source? The only one I'm remotely familiar with is
Jameco, but they have such byzantine rules for ordering (and a glossy
catalogue.. somehow glossy pages in a components catalogue is sleazy) that
I'd rather not deal with them.

I'll check out Digi-key if I can find the catalogue and nobody jumps up
and says, "Eugh! Don't order from THEM.."

That makes sense. Let's hope I didn't fry it when I dropped it on the
carpet. It's been raining here for months though so the air is definitely
damp enough that I don't think it was a problem.
