  • Sharky’s machine

  • yeah…a little bit, and be fair I did gripe too…a little bit. Also, I didn’t mean to call u out specifically, just that I was tired of reading all of the negative comments from the nay-sayers, know-it-alls acting like it was some scheme to steal their time and sell it to the devil or something….

  • Thanks Sparkfun, didn’t get anything this time around (or the last time for that matter…). But I think was great anyway, you did what hundreds of other sellers would never do…..they’d sooner toss it all in bin rather than deep discount it for their customers ( I work in retail/wholesale I know how goes..)

    besides, I think it worked they way it was intended to work, a limited number of items who ever gets them first wins….no different than a black Friday event, and way better than some of those bait and switch schemes. At least Spark Fun let us know how many are available at the start. Wish I had a better internet connection, but my company uses stupid barracuda that only sometimes works, yet always chews up bandwidth.

  • you should really re-think your sense of entitlement….they specified very clearly that it was a gamble, there were limited items, and you have clear checkout before it ‘yours’.

  • Almost….wanted to get one of each but the 1.5’s sold out before I could get to the checkout!

    oh well…maybe next time, but I’m not going to 12.00 shipping for a $10.00 box…..

  • I AM THE KING OF DENSE,…ER..UMMM,,,, DANCE!

  • Pete demonstrates his concept for next years AVC, sub-competition, the ADC or Autonomous Dance Competition….

  • Mining? Pfft…I’ll just hack this koopah shell and I can just jump to collect bit coins…

  • Dooo-doo-doo-doo-doo-dooooo! My @$$….

  • Shotgun shells – might be doable – but I wouldn’t…..
