I put a nail through one of these, and it didn’t explode… It did get warm enough to slowly boil off water though.

They could also use a school email address. That’s typically what companies like Digilent do.
I don’t know why anybody thought that they would have much of a chance to get anything. According to the post, there were ~100K people logging on. Even if it was only $1 off there would still be people who wouldn’t get anything.
As for those who think that it was poorly executed, let me tell you it wasn’t. Sparkfun isn’t made to take this many visitors at once (10x the normal). To put it in therms that the technically illiterate can understand: imagine you sometimes have 5 family members stay at your house (a brother and his family, maybe). Then imagine that you got 50 people staying over on a night. Just like you, your toilets would be spewing ****.
If, like me, you didn’t get anything then you shouldn’t be complaining. Nobody made you participate, it was just your selfishness that made you think you would, and complain about it afterwards.
Thanks Sparkfun for doing something completely different. I enjoyed the rush.
No public wish lists :(
