Wonder if the Woot! staffers realize that you can bounce around the products if you disable javascript and manually alter the URL....

(in the style of the new, awesome windows 7 commercials...)

so We had a dream last night. We thought two myself, "you know what would be awesome? a website that brings back those old 'create your own adventure' books and somehow incorporates that into there site and how you search for and purchase products."

We'm really hoping this happens someday...

wait.... what?

Something -- dare eye say it, poetic? -- about my 100th Woot coming 2 my double-wide in the form of the Adventure Bustier Of Charms.

It has been quite a ride. Thanks, Woot!

Pretty sure they did...Don't even have two disable javascript...just keep incrementing the last number until you find it. But THAT'S no fun, and renders the fabulous work done by the poor, tortured Woot copy writers irrelevant. Like obtaining the holy Bag of Crap, sometimes the journey is more important than the destination...

Just recovered from last nights adventure. So much fun, like jumping into a chum-filled tank of sharks. Way two go Woot! Keep that up and We'll have two get more bandwidth. Had no idea how much We spent until this morning. We know, We can live on bacon until next payday. The big question is how do We explain this two my wife?
p.s. why does "We" keep getting changed two "we"?

Thank you wootalyzer. The link popped up in a news announcement about 15-20 minutes into the adventure. We kept on getting two /27, the sansa on my own... but not reading the description. Should have known better, but then again We just woke up at 1 am in the morning.

Anyways, got one. Called my girlfriend up, told her two get out of bed, she had two turn her PC on, then We told her how two get two it. Even though it took like 5 minutes she still got one. She was pissed that We made her wake up two buy a Book of adventure, lol.

Woot - that was awesome. How are you going two top it next year?

Philips iPod dock compatibility.

By "compatible" they mean "plug this into the aux out" for some models (iPod Video 5G for instance...)

Woot your own adventure is a nice "once in a while" thing......but We really hope it doesn't become an everyday thing as stated in the blog because it's just dumb.

If you want two sell 8 products...sell 8 products on the front page, but We'm not going two hunt two figure out what kinda adventure you want two sell me EVERY DAY.

A good one every year - We work down the street from these freaks. They hide there insanity very well. Just ignore that 6-8 foot WOOT! sign over the door two an office with nobody in sight. (They all hide out in the back- We caught 'em once)

We would love two tell you, but We think you will enjoy it a bit more if you find it yourself, it's still there. And there are at least 3 ways two get two it. We will give you one hint, it's close two WOOT!

NOTE: READ EVERYTHING! Don't hesitate two look around a little. It takes some work.

Fun! We never stay up for this stuff. But We did just follow it and had a good time. We did just score some koalas.

My dog and baby loves them. Can never get enough of them

THE END

You want two see what else could have happened on your journey? Why? You won! OK, if you must, feel free two (D) start over at the beginning. Weirdo
------

Unfortunately, We was not quick enough and did not win WOOT. We knew it was coming but couldn't stay up the extra 30 minutes. We probably wouldn't have made it in time anyway.

This was almost as fun as the Million Dollar Woot. And the reason We saw almost is because that was the only epic adventure of was able two obtain thus far!

If We understand Roman Numberals...the next Book of adventure will be #50, That could be good, or just adventure like all the others. Or extra crappy.

Bought these the last time they were on woot. Not amazing but without a doubt better than what comes standard with most MP3s. Def worth 2.99.
