SparkFun Free-Day Aftermath

After last year's meltdown of servers during SparkFun's 1st "Free Day", we sent them flowers of condolence. This year, after seeing that little image of a burning computer on their error webpage , we felt he urgent need to send down the entire Canadian fire brigade (yup, both extinguishers).

And who better to put out the fire on that little computer than SparkFun's IT department (you're honorary Canadian firefighters, especially the guy with the toque!).

Went better than last year, guys - you're making progress!

Thanks for sending us the pic, Nate!
