We thought maybe Woot had gone out of business and nobody told us ...

No Jason. No contest. No podcast. No KT.

At least you didn't desert us.

I went to a store and found a set of office furniture that I wanted on Saturday night. I cleared out the old office furniture and other such items on Sunday morning. I asked a few neighbors and my sister to see if she wanted any of my old items. I also put ads up on craigslist for FREE items.

We had overhead cabinets to prep for which meant getting a stud finder, putting up strapping and measuring a million times.

Afterall is said and done, my desk is huge. I am just waiting for the Braille on Cookiesse to come in as well as my curtains...

Nope. Not this time. I got burned by AZG the last time I talked about my office set up. The office looks good and is my sanctuary.

question for y'all.

Is it possible to display the contents of a post by post number rather than as a quote?
i.e., Jason quotes his blog entry in the contest descriptions

Two things occured to us as we were pondering this week's contest. During Woot-Offs, our product descriptions come fast and furious, with a (let's say) less-than-Melvillian level of detail. But many of them have a bigger story to tell - a story that an imaginative, skilled writer could weave into a novel. The other thing we thought about was how much we like anagrams. Hence, your challenge:

Design the cover for a novel starring a product we've sold in the current Woot-Off - and make the title an anagram of the product's name.

That oughtta get you working both sides of the brain, huh? The guidelines about the product's name are the same as last week's - any significant part or parts of our official sale title (in other words, the title of that item's blog post) are fair game, with one new exception: you can't add anything to the name to make your anagram work. You can use an existing novel cover or create a new one. Neither book covers nor anagram generators are hard to find on the web, so get 'choppin.

Post your entry here by 11:59 PM CDT on Sunday, November 19, 2006. Prizes are $20/$50/$100 for 3rd/2nd/1st. The rules and criteria for winning: our panel of geniuses can and will make stuff up as it goes along. Use Photoshop, pen and ink, collage, MSPaint, scrimshaw carving, tattoos, ice sculpture, whatever, but it’ll only be judged if it’s visible in our forums as a jpg, gif, or png. Try to keep your maximum width to 450px. If you need a place to host your pictures, try www.imageshack.ws or www.photobucket.com. We have no connection to either, but they seem free and easy to use. And if you want us to be sure your entry was indeed your work, post links to your source images. The more sure we are that you did your own work, the more likely we are to consider it for a prize.

Past money winners: If you'd like to nominate any entries from this week's contest, email your selections (with links to the individual post) to Jason at jtoon@woot.com by noon CDT on Monday. 




SO is it possible to do so with a regular post? I tried [entry] and that didn't work.
is there something else?

Definitely a qwerty question. I usually just quote Jason then where it says blog entry blah blah blah I copy and paste the text into the quote.

Like so....but you have to edit in the italics, bold and links.


Jason Toon wrote:Approximately 101 weeks ago, we had a really dumb idea. "Hey, Woot, let's enter a team in the World Extreme Fighting Championships," we suggested to ourselves. "Davebug might seem a little scrawny, but he's wiry. And Snapster's got the Eye of the Tiger if we've ever seen it." After a few seconds of rational thought, the extreme fighting team turned into a weekly (mostly-)Photoshop contest. And we've never looked back, no matter how many times Jason got called "retard" in the forums.

Now, on the occasion of Contest the Hundredth, we're giving you six days to indulge our nostalgic mood. Your challenge:

Create ONE new entry that, in and of itself, meets any TWO of the previous 99 Woot Contest challenges.

Got that? The idea is, you make one new picture (or whatever) that could potentially win two different previous contests of ours. Maybe that means grafting a haiku onto an album cover mashup. Maybe it means Captain Bluetooth visits the first Thanksgiving. Entries will be judged on all the usual qualities - wit, beauty, technical skill, whatever - plus how well you manage to integrate two disparate aims into one piece. Start by browsing the archive of old contests in our forums, find a couple of themes you like, and then do that voodoo that you do so well. As always, we prefer entrants that reveal their sources. And make sure you tell us which two contest challenges you're combining in your entry. Yeah, it's gonna be tough. That's why we're giving you almost a week.
