drat it! The limited-run highly anticipated cheap gadget for nerds sold out quickly! Who would have guessed?


I don't think the confusion is over the fact that it sold out fast, but that the site was completely inaccessible - so how did it get sold?

I dunno why the RasPi guys wouldn't choose Amazon to do this - they have distribution worldwide, very affordable shipping, and extremely large server farms to handle very large amounts of traffic.
