It's your 3rd post on this...if the price will be the same, why are you so upset? They sold what they had available; simple supply and demand issues.

These post appear after every sale like this.

It was stated that limited quantity is available, first come, first served.

Anyway... the summer sale will be sometime at the end of June/July.

I am aware that there were limited quantities. I can read. I was just expressing a little frustration. I don't have an unlimited supply of money or time. Every little bit of savings in those areas is appreciated.

And yes, I know the summer sale is coming. I was hoping to get one to "play" with before then as I do most of my planning and programming early due to other responsibilities.

Thanks for the "encouragement".

Edit: I want you all to realize that things sold out much faster than last year and I did feel bad about that. I do realize that people will be disappointed and they certainly do have the right to express that disappointment.

--------

As we said we sell what we have available to sell. We could have just not sold any CCRs at all ...

Thing is, this was a Mad Grab just like we said it would be. We did not in any way try to sugar coat this event. It was a chance to get things for LESS than the prices in the summer sale.

People will miss out and from what we can see 650+ people were successful!!!!!

Frustration indeed. But it is what it is...

Dan, Can you set up a Canadian USPS shipping calculator at checkout for next years sale... The delays to get past the errors at the current checkout screw your Canadian customers out of what we try to check out with.

I had my order in and on the Paypal site in less than 25 seconds and got a "does not accept funding source" message. It would have been nice to know that in advance. After that, it was too late. I can accept sold out.

For the future...Avoid paypal for this. Takes too long for a 5 min fire sale. Had the same problem last year. Best to use CC.

You have to grab one item (as many as you think you can get) and race to the checkout.

Thanks Dan!

You give new meaning to March Madness!

I was thinking the same thing. This is the first year I tried PayPal and I couldn't believe how slow it was (compared to other PP transactions). I'll go back to typing everything in next year.

I used Paypal, and had no issues. Very fast for me. I do have a 1T speed, but who knows?

Dan thanks for everything!

I look forward to the new S3 later this year. Have you come up with a price on the renewals from the S2 roll out? I know mind has expired, but I want to renew my upgrade license.

Must be something wrong with your Paypal account.
I am from Canada and had no trouble paying with PayPal.
I wanted to make sure everything worked tonight so I bought a USB-RS485 around 9:30 EST sort of a dry run.

For the Canadians LOR does ship via UPS but you can pay the brokerage fees before it gets shipped so no surprise charges.


LOR ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks Dan!

As a first timer i would also like to thank Dan for the sale.. this is a very rare event in todays business environment and with only a few companys to choose from i am amazed the sale even happens at all.

I have been able to save some money so that made it easier to get the wife onboard and because it was early in the year i now have the next 6 months to play with my new gadgets and get ready for christmas.

THANKYOU, DAN
