I was getting my hair cut tonight and talking about the deal with the girl (she had asked me if I'd gotten a Wii this weekend). I was telling her about it and someone from across the room chimed in, saying she knew about it too.

It's definitely out there.

Reloaded my page 2 minutes prior, and it didn't refresh until after it was all over.

Well, that was stupid. The servers were so slow. I had 7 browser windows going, trying to load the page. By the time 1 of them finally loaded at 11:01:28, they were all sold out already.

This had nothing to do with the speed of your connection. It was luck of the draw as to whether the Amazon web servers responded fast enough to load the page for you or not.

I didn't get lucky. The web servers decided to not respond to 3 of my computers.

I got to actually click on the deal, but never got it to respond so I could get the 360. Page just timed out.

I would keep checking even if it says sold out, some people never get through the checkout and cancel out.

Anyone get it? Mine refreshed within the first minute, but I was still not one of the lucky ones.
