For me, the most rewarding part of a Thursday is when they give me my money.

The last one was only three weeks ago...and I actually have crap to do this time. The site glitched for a sec and I got a glimpse of the Bandolier of Carrots but because the site inevitably froze up I went home and missed it. Apparently 2 people got an overnighted Wii in their Blinged-Out Cabbage.

Although it looks so very exciting right now with that Roomba up now.
They need to save a bunch of those Game Bridges for when I sleep tonight so I don't miss anything

It seems like those 2000 Roombas sold faster than the 1500 game bridges they had last woot-off for $13... of course Roombas actually do something productive. It was funny how the Game Bridge discussion thread turned into a cat picture posting area.

Of course now the wine's going to sell out just in time for me to take a Cpe 213 test... time for that USB 6GB Microdrive that took a couple hours to sell last time that turned into a Photoshop contest for people to include it in pictures, like this one:

Is this only the first set of iPod speakers they've offered today?... still got a few more to go probably. And we've yet to see the Scooba.

--2:30--
Now it's a refurb (rox0rz!) coffee maker

Ahh good point; I don't drink coffee so I just saw coffee maker and ignored it.

It's nice to finally have a Woot thread on here. Of course, I've only been checking it for the past month and a half so this is only my second woot-off.

No I haven't listened to any of them.

The consecutive printer/roomba/wine were all pretty slow too. I just hope the Game Bridge doesn't pop up until after midnight (of course, if it pops up at all)... sold so slow last time there were over 2200 comments, a lot of them cat pictures.

Does the BOC always contain something really valuable, or might it just be crap?

Usually the "bag" that's included retails for at least the $8. The last couple of times it's been offered (the only two I actually looked back at people's posts) there's some kind of Samsonite camera bag with it. This time almost everyone also got some kind of Thermos insulated pub mug. Several people will get refurbished or not-guaranteed-to-work stuff like this time there were pairs of MP3 sunglasses that usually worked. People have gotten PDA's missing only a power cord and stuff like that. Of course they include weird stuff a lot too like an Afro Ken plush doll that the picture of seems to not exist anymore. A few people got a roomba or a scooba (retail for at least $200) and other stuff like that.

People start getting them about Page 46 of the BOC discussion from last woot-off

On a random related note, this forum software does has word filter preferences...wonder if you can change formatting, such as changing any instance of nixa to NIXA

Of course they probably have relatively low quantities of the $750 Ultra Mobile PC so it will sell faster

Makes sense... it looked like it went down in 10% increments and that would be why

-10:30-
That projector killed it for at least an hour

No, there won't be any. The wootoff is over. :(

I figured there wouldn't be since they've had one the last two times and people say they usually only have them about every other one.

I knew I should have looked back at what they sold last Christmas... of course I still wouldn't have gotten any carrots because of the overloaded servers.

Another Woot-Off! And based on how slow the site is right now, if there's a bandolier this time there's no way I'll even get a server response while it's up

--12:21 AM--
It's not really even worth trying... the server is still barely responding... (although you know me, I'll be watching it the whole time even if it doesn't load)
