Could be, not really sure. I keep refreshing until it says sold out, and watch the meh countdown clock. I presume the countdown clock and the sold out indicator both come from meh’s servers, so it should be in synch. (My computer clock does seem to be within a second of the meh clock, but I don’t think that is relevant)
@D_a_v_e I am partly talking about how long I have to wait until the changeover before I can click and not get the previous deal. I am also going by when it comes up saying sold out (I load slowly) and the two times I posted it said sold out sooner via the clock on my screen than what you posted for how long it was open. Because I don’t know how long before I finally loaded it said sold out I can’t speak to when sold out, only what the clock says when my sold out page loads (no chance to try to buy as it loads already sold out).
I have typically hit the Sold Out condition at less than 7 seconds from rollover, on my failed attempts. If it takes longer than that before the Buy button vanishes, I sispect that there is a back end database update and check latency issue involved.
