There's an outfit that I sometimes do business with--Futurlec (at
http://www.futurlec.com/ ). As near as I can figure, order processing is
done in New York, but shipment is done from Thailand. It's odd--I still
get my orders in about a week, so maybe globalization works. They also
carry the Aussie "Silicon Chip" magazine.
