Here's another one for you then, John.  Arduino prototype boards (and
related products) from a very dear friend of mine.

http://www.solarbotics.com/freeduino_arduino/

I can't describe him as a friend of the LUG because he hasn't attended
yet.  I know you folks would be crazy about him though.  And the
hackerspace community would go nuts for Dave and his company,
Solarbotics.

Have fun running up your credit card.  ;-)
