Start of ecommerce

Today I finally setup my ecommerce site.  The home page takes you directly to my first product sale the ATMEGA328-PU with Arduino bootloader.  Its quite simple page because I wanted to launch it ASAP and update frequently.  If you interested in buying an ATMEGA328-PU for your Arduino go to the home page and click the buy now button.  Its the cheapest price in the world guaranteed, $2.00 per chip with free shipping.
