Moonlight resistors and LEDS.

Simple question..Where does everyone get their LED's and resistors from? The only local place to me (radioshack) only had 470nm but I heard 475nm was better.

Ive always found www.oznium.com to be a pretty good place to find what you want when it comes to led lighting

The source I always use for any electronics project is digikey.com. Although you really have to know what you're talking about because there are SO many products and choosing the correct one can sometimes be hard.
