As the things started moving again, were all the furloughed employees reinstated back to their positions? Going through the comments posted by many on the sparkfun website, I see there was a huge response to this campaign by Sparkfun. Hope many could avail this opportunity.

I'm curious how many people were able to take advantage of this deal before things opened back up.

I'm thinking it might be unAmerican to hope Congress resumes work ;-)

I think this is a wonderful gesture by the folks at Sparkfun -- and you never know, it might ultimately "spark" someone into a completely new career!

Nice perk that I hope won't be necessary, because Congress is going to get its act together today, right?
