    Clearly the website infrastructure performed very poorly for this promotion. Starting at 11AM EST, I was stuck with my cart items at checkout confirmation (https://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/checkout_confirmation.php) for hours and many dozens of retries – and in fact I never got it to fully process my order. In the end, I think this promotion was more of a turn-off due to the fact that the frustration factor was so high. I attempted to process my cart one second after the start and could never get the order in.
    “Our servers barely stayed up!” – sorry, no, they didn’t.

No public wish lists :(
