Pleased to meet you here. I am also known as x1541 as you probably know :)

I ordered a few parts from Mouser now because they had all the parts I 
couldn't get from Reichelt. Comments are appreciated.

- ATF1504ASVL-20JU44 (faster parts were on backorder)
- ATMEGA1284P-PU (I went for this bigger version on purpose and bought some 
stock to get free shipping)
- SCDA6A0101 is a lower profile version of the original SCDA5A0201. I 
ordered both and I will test if the smaller one fits. It might fit better 
with the slot in the back of the cartridge case.

I was especially shocked that I couldn't find any AM29F040 chips in any 
package at most shops. I have at least one at home and I can buy them off 
ebay via some Hong Kong suppliers, but that's it.
