    The giveaway probably would’ve lasted minutes if the servers handled the load properly. That is my guess anyways!

    RE: JohnM.
    I absolutely agree. This was the most frustrating experience. The entire time I could not even view the Sparkfun webpage as all requests would time out. I already had a cart of items I set up the night before but simply could not get on the page to purchase them. Regardless of whether or not Sparkfun servers crashed, they were definitely inadequate for the job. Had I just been too slow and missed out on the giveaway because of my own shortcomings I would have graciously accepted missing out on this event. But after the way this played out the image of Sparkfun I hold in my mind has surely been tarnished.

No public wish lists :(
