SparkFun Free Day - My picks

Think I've pretty much figured out what I'll try to order tomorrow during SparkFun Electronics's Free Day. Judging by the amount of lag I received on the site both the day of the announcement and at this very moment, I expect the sale will not last. How long? Well I have anti-luck, so I'm not even submitting my guess. But for the record, my guess is 9:03 AM.

Here's what I'm going to try and nab.

USB miniB Cable - 6 Foot: $3.95

FTDI Basic Breakout - 5V: $13.95
http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=9115

Arduino Pro Mini 328 - 5V/16MHz: $18.95
http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=9218

Wire Strippers 30AWG: $4.95
http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=8696

SparkFun Pint Glass - $9.95
http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=8405

Total: $51.75

Minus the Wire Strippers and Pint glass, all parts will go to my RGB Light Bar project. I'll be a bit too preoccupied to update as I just built a new PC and picked up a copy of Left 4 Dead 2, so the LightBar hardware should be completed and wall mounted by the next post.
