  • AWESOME work Sparkfun!! Acotbotics looks great. I have been looking for a "one stop shop" like this to prototype mechatronic solutions. Have to join in the gripes about non-metric though... maybe the rest of the world will also get you to put the date the right way round one day too... (oh boy here come the ISO date standard geek comments...:-)

    Seriously though, my kids have Lego Mindstorms EV3 under the tree and now I am already working out how to plug that into this - great work guys!!

  • LOL yes I was thinking the same thing but keeping it at the component level as the dice currently are. Roll the device, draw the component. Roll the dice, attach the new component to any other point on the schematic so far.
    Can you make a working circuit in 10 rolls or less?
    On second thought this technique may improve my designed markedly... ;-)

  • What Skimask said!

  • Come on everyone who is complaining! This was always going to a 1 in 10,000 shot (actually seems to have been more like 1 in 70 from what I read so the odds weren't that bad). The first time I saw the massive timeout I knew it was a lottery.
    I'm in Aus, got up at 2:45am, stayed on for an hour or so and then went back to bed unsuccessful but happy.
    WHY? Because Sparkfun is still the leading light in kick-arse components, modules and really cool electronics stuff. And because they are not afraid to try radical things like free day.
    Go SFE! keep innovating technically and culturally and making the world a better place in some small way!
    All you whiners go and enjoy the fact that you got to participate in some fun, even if you, like me, did not get what you wanted.

  • Well at least it shows that SFE customers are ahem quite keen! (or at least we love a bargain!!)
    See you all Jan 07!!

  • DUHHHH Thanks Dan! Now I know why my calandar reminder hasn't come up!!

  • Not working for me either and have been trying since 9am - now 9.27 - any comment from SFE?

No public wish lists :(
