Wow - this is a thread that won't die ;)

For the love of all things holy, use common sense and consideration for the Woot servers on this... i.e. don't refresh 10 times a second.
Furthermore, the older version of the programmer's interface updated only every 30 seconds IIRC. The current version, based off what I've seen of the time stamp, seems to be down to every 10 seconds. With good programming, you should be able to sync up a checker to this update period without having to bombard the severs with constant refresh requests.
I apologize if my info is a bit off as I haven't messed with this stuff much in several years but I hope this helps.
