Since you can’t solder a 0.1" two pin header into the staggered 3.3 and 5v power and ground pins, what I did was cut off six pins of a double row break away header, and then remove the eight pins that don’t correspond to the holes. This left four pins that fit perfectly into the board. Unfortunately I don’t think SparkFun sells 0.1" double row break away headers (too bad, they should, they’re handy to have around). But you could probably use two rows of single row headers instead.

Another vote for Fry’s. I live near Phoenix, where there is a Fry’s about 10 miles from me, but there are no Micro Centers in Arizona.
News - Free Day is Done

Like many others, I had my cart all filled, was already logged in and pressed Checkout right at 09:00:00 MST. I’m practically “next-door” in Arizona and never got through to the next page until seconds after the $100K was reached (lots of timeouts and blank pages).
As others have suggested, I think this should have been run as a “Customer Appreciation Free Day” and only limited to previous customers.
1000 successful orders in approx. 105 minutes = 9.5 orders/minute, or only one order processed every 6.3 seconds. Earlier I was guessing you’d be able to process at least an order every second. You may want to get a refund on your new servers.
Looking forward to seeing the stats.
No public wish lists :(
