    I think it’s would be better if they switched to cloud computing rather than having millions of http requests funneling to one server. Or maybe just separate the quiz from their site to the cloud so sparkfun can still be accessed. I think that’s a win win situation.

    I remember that painful day trying get my order with no success. With these new rules implemented like the 10 questions, we can hopefully reduce scavengers and free loaders that sell parts on ebay just to make money. <br />
    <br />
    “What’s the ohm value for resistor bands red,red,brown?”<br />
    “How much flash storage does the PIC12F629 have?”<br />
    “What does this component do?” *show a picture of relay switch<br />
    <br />
    Lol.<br />
    <br />
    I’ll definitly answer these questions.<br />
    <br />
    I also love the fact that you are giving us $10/year. That would make me consider this site as a customer to buy parts.

    I prepared for this day. Had my cart ready. Waited for the countdown. Wasted 2 hours of my time clicking on SUBMIT. Never got through. After that, I just lost interest building my arduino project. I’m not going to spend $153.67 without that discount. There are some people here thy actually want to build. I bet most of them just want free grab. They should Improve the checkout process and separate it from the sites server. I won’t be coming again here.

No public wish lists :(
