A common IT euphemism for something spontaneously breaking is a “fire”. A good day at SparkFun IT is one where there are no fires to put out.
Looks like our credit card gateway, Authorize.net, had a bit of fire themselves yesterday. Only theirs was for real! The service went down and for a period of a few hours yesterday morning SparkFun was unable to take credit card orders.
Things have since been repaired and everything is humming along again. If you were one of the few who saw an error during checkout with a credit card yesterday everything is now working normally. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Oh, and I hope everyone is having a great 4th. Be safe - don’t start any fires!
