I'm gonna be at NB tonight and will at least work out what I want from
digikey and add it to the order page. Lamont, I don't really understand
this well enough to tease out a set of things to order but maybe someone

As you probably saw, Jason's going to do the bulk order tomorrow, not
today, so there's a bit of time to get ourselves sorted.
