Where to get 0.05" pin headers?

My 2 VoCores arrived without any pin headers.

And they are proving mighty hard to source.

Any tips on where I can get some, and in-stock? Even Mouser seems to be out of stock.

...Bonus points for an option with cheap, fast shipping to Australia. (Well, I can dream...)

P.S. Has anyone else noticed that classic grey ribbon cable (Eg IDE cable, pre Ultra DMA) seems to have exactly the right pitch?
(By virtue of the cable serving a 2-row 0.1" header socket...)

I suppose I could jumper via ribbon cable to a 0.1" prototype board for getting going...
That might have a bit more mechanical robustness than individually soldered wires, maybe?
