Sounds to me like mackey was causing the problem by putting all of the available merchandise at Digikey into his own shopping cart leaving nothing for the rest of us
Actually I didn't notice any problems. I had started a shopping card the day before and I finished it by adding more parts and placing an order last night. Given that I received confirmation that the order shipped today, it seems to have worked as it should.
I probably wasn't on the site at exactly the same time as you were. -- Got some spare cpu cycles ? Join Team Helix or Team Starfire!
