Once again dissapointment I try and try and somehow finally get through, just to get an error that the deal is sold out. Tear. I have tried for a year to get this crap. Guess I should buy a faster computer off of Woot!

They know how many of us rush the servers whenever these things go up. You'd think they would know to throw a couple of extra hamsters in wheels to try and make sure we don't get those accursed white screens. I got to the blank Order.Confirmation page three times before it finally started kicking me back to "This sale is sold out."

Good luck. I pushed the Big Gold button and then the order status page was no where to be found. I waited a few lagtastic minutes and low and behold... My first Burgandy Olfactory Center since the '09 Santa's Sack O' Crap.

Yay

I pushed the big yellow button & then the server error page-but it's listed on my account, so check there.

This was so strange. I am used to failing when the brap is in the cag, so when wootalyser opened the buy page, and it took forever to load, I didn't expect anything. But the buy page actually opened, but then my paypal stuff wasn't there.

Hej, I just happened to have my card on my desk, so I filled out the number and all that stuff, all the while knowing that it takes me so long to key anything that it will be sold out before I'm done.

And then...it took even longer to load the next page. But oddly enough it came back to ask if everything was correct. Well, I knew it was too late, and that it would come back that I missed, but I went ahead and said it was ok...and then it took again forever to load the page (really: I am at work, and I did three things while waiting for the pages to load).

The oddest thing is...it said I bought a gab of prac. It worked. Well, unless something else goes wrong...now I need to go back and re-set it to work with my paypal.

Back in the old days I got an iPod Video and wireless keyboards and all kinds of useful stuff. The last one was the worst, everything in the bag was for a little girl. Yet still I tried again.



I hear ya.. last few I got were literally crap! Coloring books, interface cables for MP3 players that just don't exist etc. Now, I know it's exactly what they advertise, but still throw a guy a 55" LCD TV bone once in a while!

Get this - my Order conformation page is still loading showing waiting on the Member Order page at the bottom . . . I truly hate this . . .

The last time it did this, I left it up overnight and came back to a Burgandy Olfactory Center - this time I don't think I will be so lucky

Yipee! The gods of Woot smiled upon me today. I got a Bag of Coal (my fourth, I think, since 2009). It's been a long time coming and I've been trying pretty hard. I hope its something good. I hope its not a pallet of car wax (very scary).

Got it! I hope mine contains an HP Touchpad that I can sell at a grossly inflated price, just like the last dozen that I bought during the firesale. Otherwise, I don't even want it. (For those that don't know, this entire post is riddled with sarcasm and deceit.)

After the last Burgandy Olfactory Center I told myself I wasn't going to try for another one.....but when I saw it on the homepage for some reason I had to at least try. 1 window clicking each button only once and waiting worked. Pages loaded slow but I got it. Hopefully threepiecewoot's replacement got his feet wet last Burgandy Olfactory Center and this time tries to go for the fun and random route after playing it safe last time learning the ropes.

Seriously. I've been watching for two solid days, nonstop. I hear my phone "jingle" that a new item was up so I grab my phone to check (because I KNEW it had to be the Bag O' Christmas) and what to my wondering eyes should appear? My husband's name on the screen, such a sweet dear. I ignored him and was able to get my order through on the HAPPY NEW YEAR!. While waiting for the next page to load, he called AGAIN, which again I ignored him. When the Buy page came up, it froze into a white, blank page. He better be glad I'll never know if it was his fault or Woot's crappy servers that caused me to not get a Bag O' Christmas. I could have used the pick-me-up of some good ole' crap in my mailbox this year.

Very irritating. I ordered the Burgandy Olfactory Center as soon as it switched to that item. Then the site froze due to sheer numbers of hits. When the order confirmation page finally came up. it said it was sold out. Crap.

Once again, I get to click the button, but the server crashes before I get to the checkout page. C'mon Woot, you should be able to handle this better by now! It isn't like this doesn't happen every Woot-off.
