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…..
