(I'm using the woot tracker at Bagsofcrap.com, and the one I'm using--they have like 4--doesn't have the descriptions, so I didn't know what the heck you were talking about at first!)

zgator, during woot-offs they frequently sell off their leftovers, so they might only have ten or twenty of some of these things.

I was in class for the bag of crap. I'm not really interested in anything else as I have just about no money right now.

I asked the guy in charge of their website.

The BOC's always seem to come up when I'm not at the computer. Oh well, I got a nice mp3 player/audio recorder out of this woot-off.

They had 446 of those tape measures, but cheap items like that sell really fast. The Woot-offs are a like a big stress test on the website; they've got thousands of people refreshing like mad whenever it looks like a product is about to sell out. They've got their system upgraded from last year, so that it can handle the load a lot better, but they don't have a way to process credit cards faster than 4 or 5 every second. The processing for the bags of crap can take up to 20 minutes, I guess.

I *had* a bag-o-crap and was filling out the credit card/shipping information only to learn that those bastidges don't ship to Hawaii. I almost had it delivered to my daughter on the mainland, but didn't.

I'm so disappointed. I only noticed this thread yesterday and have been having so much fun watching for something I might want. [Cry]

I had it. I even got to the final yellow button. But I was delayed because the credit card they had on record, it turns out, is the one I lost last week, which I only discovered after they rejected it, and I had to reinput CC info.

I had been refreshing repeatedly when it came up. I was all over the damn thing, and the page loaded instantly.

I made it to the final yellow button, too. But by the time I clicked it, it came back with "there is not enough to complete the order." [Frown]

Well, it just came up but it sold out while I was trying to figure out how to up my order to three. They made it so you could only order one this time. [Grumble]

It always defaults to one, you have to change it to three, if you can reload your pages fast enough.

They simplified it this time, buy one (the only option), get your three craps.

I still missed it.

Yeah, Chris, that was my problem. I was looking for where I could switch it, and by the time I realized you couldn't I had missed it.

I had no difficulty resisting the Roomba. Two is enough for me to have bought.

I wonder if my father would have wanted one for Fathe--

Nope. No more Roombas.

How about this camo phone? Is this not the most ridiculous invention ever?!

Not only is the coffee maker back, the percentage available is going UP.

-o-

Actually the percentage thing is probably a glitch. Happens all the time on woot-offs. I saw several of today's items before the previous one had sold out.

The previous huge one was a DLP TV. This one was LCD. (The previous LCD was only 20 inches.)

Of course, it was also refurb (r0x0rz!). And my next paycheck won't come until August 31. And I'm going to Las Vegas in July. Details.

I'll take your word for the product details. Like any item I have no interest in, I only notice the details which are bizarre. (Like the camo phone.)

Last Woot Off I didn't resist the Roomba (new). We love it!

This Woot Off I didn't resist the DVR/VCR combo (refurbished). Hopefully I don't regret it.
