I remember buying bags of transistors by mail order in the '70's from BI-PAK Semiconductors.
In Cambridge we are lucky to still have H Gee in Mill Road, a local electronics emporium still stacked with component drawers. See here: http://we-make-money-not-art.com/archives/2009/09/parrworld-the-collection-of-ma.php#.Uxo8Kt95S5M (scroll down to the bottom). I have been shopping here for forty years, in that time Tandy has been and gone. We still have two Maplin shops here.
Can you trust Microsoft?
Until they support Linux OS with their plug-in then using Silverlight is supporting Microsoft's attempts to perpetuate their domination of the desktop OS market. They are doing this by deliberately marketing products that aren't truly cross-platform, i.e. at least work on Windows, OSX and Linux, and of course by creating a non standards-compliant browser (IE). At least Flash works in Linux, better to stick with that for now.
