I ALSO forgot to mention that Newark have a shipping contract with UPS,
which is why you get the $8 shipping -- the other benefit of that contract
is that Newark takes care of all the import and customs fees. I've had
$300+ orders arrive the next business day, with no customs problems at all.
A SparkFun order I got last year of about $200 ended up costing me an
additional $70 in import fees and all that crap.
