News - Free Day is Done
about 5 years ago
I am currently unemployed and dont have the money to spend on “projects” right now so when I read about this a couple months back i was excited that maybe i could finally get a decent soldering station since I dont have access to one at work anymore. needless to say I didnt get through the checkout process, i am disappointed But i am certainly not pissed off at sparkfun. why do we all have such a sense of entitlement. even if the servers hadnt crashed and burned remember that if every person that qualified for freeday used all $100 that would only be 1000 people so there is a good chance that you wouldnt have gotten a damn thing anyway! this was a partially a stress test for their servers and they NEVER (as far as i saw) said that their servers would be able to handle the load without fail!
note to sparkfun: remember “no good deed goes unpunished”
I finally got to the payment confirmation page seconds after the $100k was reached…. guess i’ll have up the $110 for my soldering iron!
No public wish lists :(
