    So I have been looking to buy a raspberry pi for a while now in order to run my show. I came across this website http://www.auseparts.com.au/ that sell all of the little computers that we use and then some.


    Now I am not affiliated with this site at all I just came across it and wanted to let you all know about it. So if your looking for a Pi or a BBB or an arduino or anything else really they seem to have most of everything. Also failry good pricing and shipping charges, the raspberry pi is on sale for the next 6 days.


    Ordered mine today and payed for next day delivery so lets see how quick it comes.

    At my old workplace my boss had an account with Farnell / Element 14, he even used to get the "catalogue" lol massive thing.


    However when you go to order from them it says that if it's private you need to order from one of the resellers and not from them so I don't know if you can order from them if you don't have an ABN or business, I didn't try. I did find this place and saw they had heaps of stuff and thought people might want to buy from them instead of Element 14.

    If your lookng to buy a BBB, you might now consider a BBG. ( Beaglebone Green ) from Seeed Studio.. $US39 vs $50

    Well my package has arrived from the place listed above. Got my raspberry pi a little copper heatsink and a wipi wireless dongle. Super happy with the service even though all the boxes have element14 across them lol.

    i don't think that the green has been tested by anyone as yet with the octascroller etc to make sure that it works with no issues/tweaking required.
