That is the 1980s version.  It is supposed to work like the Russian site.
Click on the part and it should open a window with availability, and price,
then click on the order button.

I once tried to buy something on the Russian site, giving them a credit card
number that I seldom used and could easily cancel.

Got a message which I had translated to the effect that they do not ship to
the US, only Europe, and they gave me Freight forwarder's name in Finland
who would organize the shipping.  they never hit the card nor did the card
number get sold to the Russian mafia which I fully expected.

Colin (in much more risk averse mode these days!)
