Unfortunately those outside the US will still be slapped with import taxes. I checked, they will not mark the packages as gifts/donations...

sparkfun.com has been down most of the week. Doesn't look like most of us will be getting in, but animal spirits being what they are, they're going to get a huge number of paid orders just from the frustrated freeday wannabes.

They're shutting down parts of the website to make it as light as possible in order to keep with the brutal onslaught of impatient refresh-clickers, but to no avail. It's T-14 hours and Sparkfun.com is already pretty much done for :))

Just an FYI, Sparkfun.com never responded to ping. The site itself is still breathing.
Comment by Michal on January 7, 2010 at 6:35am
Now the site is dead. I wonder if they are preparing for the rush or they fall under massive pings...LOL

I was able to get an order thru a few mins ago after about 6 failed attempts. I'm guessing they are turning away over 10 times as many people as they are serving and that Free Day has already been a success financially for SF and it is still T-2hrs to go.
