Yesterday, they posted this:
Currently our servers struggle to support the traffic/refreshing of an announced art release and that’s something we are working on. In the meantime, we will be keeping our art sales a bit more random, unannounced, or lottery style…but always on Wednesdays (PST). So items may show up in the current Shop, or even a direct Buy button on marqspusta.com, it could be anything, anywhere. The purchasing lottery system will also continue to be used as a way to gather interested customers for releases.

For the time being we will not be selling prints through the shop, as the servers have not handled the traffic of the art releases effectively.
but then goes and sells prints through his shop?
Select one (the voting is now open):
a) reasonable position stated (basically accusing Spusta of unacceptable changes to his sales method)
b) butt hurt because of failure to buy poster prior to it selling out
c) hater; enough said
d) other... state opinion on this 'beaner's position
I always defer to someone who's wearing a beater, regardless of what else he's wearing.

They've been "working on" their server upgrades for a little too long at this point. I appreciate the random drop for a change.

shopify is kind of weird. Some of them hold it in different spots it seems and someone like fairey has completely turned it off all together making it fastest to finish.

I'm pretty sure Shopify can be configured either way. I believe the default has a cart hold. I think someone posted a link in the Mondo thread about when/how cart holding happens.

I know James Eads disabled cart holding for his DMB SPAC n2 drop.

How about u all just check out as fast as you can and not have to worry about cart holding?

Then again, I've gotten many things on the rebound once something has been dropped from someone's cart so who am I to complain? Haha
