  1. Just got my new 2007 Farnell catalog, and this year it's back to ONE
    book, all 3000+ pages of it.
    All is right with the world again...

  2. **For you, maybe. Although it was wrapped in plastic, the delivery guy
    managed to leave mine in the (very rare) heavy rain the other day. It's
    still drying out. I (slightly) prefer the two book system.

    Don't get any dumb ideas, Electus people. That system of supplying five
    catalogues was just plain idiotic. The Farnell catalogue is very thick and
    hard to handle. On the plus side, I can see some advantages.

    ** Nah - just some wog or pommy courier delivers the damn thing.

    Weighs in at under 3 kg.

    All the product category numbers have to be re-learned again !!!!

  4. Ours come in a big truck, the stack of books is taller than I am.
    Shame Farnell don't keep track of who's current in the company, there
    are books addressed to people who haven't worked here for 10 years.

    Have you ever sent them a correction?

  6. Yep, tried several times, it didn't work. At one point I was getting
    *four* catalogs mistakingly delivered to my own home as well!

    I also tried to get some new catalogs at one point as well and after
    three calls they still couldn't do that. At the same time they had
    also changed their famous "zero ring" phone service to some stupid on-
    hold queue system, so I sent a nasty email threatening to pull all our
    business and give it to RS. Within the hour I had a call from the head
    honcho trying to talk me out of it, and a hour after that they
    personally delivered the catalogs I wanted.

  7. and you lose all those handy marks showing which components you've
    ordered before, notes etc

    You must have been getting mine, I seemed to have gone AWOL from their list
    Ah that's my problem then, I don't do enough business with them for that :)
