Really after several attempts to get this, what is really in there, is it worth all the heart and soul to compel me that I just must get it once.

Bitter old curmudgeon #6 for me! First one was June 2006. Best score in a bag out of the previous 5: a backpack that lasted me many years! Thanks Woot!!!

Getting to the order screen was easy for me today. Getting past it, not.

I don't understand! Sitting at a blank screen while I curse the Woot servers and pray some magic happens is supposed to be a mandatory frustration of the crap-obtaining process. There's supposed to be some tension! What's this about me getting some crap in less than 60 seconds and with absolutely no hangups? And the immediate confirmation e-mail?

(Props to the server monkeys and the Woot gods -- this is number 2 for me!)

missed out this time, got to the buy screen and hit the yellow button but it just kept loading and loading until it sold out

but looking at the map I'm glad to see that many of my Wisconsin compatriots got in on it!

surprisingly the servers didn't crash while ordering. Betting the timing was so during/near rush-hour might have helped alleviate the number of fellow wooters.

Ah, I nearly passed out from holding my breath for 14 entire minutes after putting my security code in, waiting for the ridiculously large button, maybe... maybe... no. No crap today. So close!

Been at this for 5+ years and FINALLY was able to score the immense pile of doo. Thanks to Wootalyzer, I guess. I hit the BUY IT button within a second and it finally went through. It truly is a crapshoot! I think I'll sell my lottery ticket that I bought today or does lightning really strike twice?

It appears that most of the western states had a crappy experience while easterners had one significantly less so.

I think the timing caught a lot of people off guard. The DVD sets took a long time and it was just outside what some people call the prime Baggie window

Does Woot hate iPhone users?



Maybe I'll try a different iPhone browser next time.

I couldn't get through at all with my work desktop while I did get to the form page twice over Verizon.

this has been the case for the past few BOCs. Quite frustrating.

I had a tracker load it and everything, never got the page to buy to load. Something is wrong with getting the data to the east coast lately.
