So a few notes for those in the upper part of the lower 48.

I'm basing this on my last ~4 BOC's.

You can expect the shipping to be FedEx Home instead of SmartPost. My assumption is that Woot wants people to get packages at approximately the same time, so they've started shipping to Oregon at least via FedEx Home.

The FedEx Home BOC's appear to be *very* similar. More so than the smart post ones. So if you want it to be a surprise, stay off the forums.

This is BOC number 10 for me:
05/11/11 Bag of Crap
03/09/11 Bag of Crap
05/26/10 Random Crap
04/01/10 Adventure Crap
12/25/09 Santa’s Sack O’ Crap
12/09/09 Random Crap
11/19/09 Random Crap
09/24/08 Random Crap
04/09/08 Random Crap
11/16/07 Random Crap

Some say that it is possible to check by signing up for myFedex, which is a free service, but I have not been able to get dimensions that way. I had to download the desktop tracker that FedEx offers, also free, and that shows dimensions.

And I won't be here, we're heading up to Anaheim to attend an AP preview of Star Tours 3D!

I'll have a prezzie waiting for me when we get home. I always want to be home anyway, now I'll really be anxious to be here. *lol* Doesn't it work like that, the one day I leave the house?

May I ask what state you're from?

My Big Orphaned Cetacea just arrived in New Berlin at 11am, so I'm gonna say the Fedex date is right, sadly. Or close to right. I WANTED IT TODAY!

Are you clicking on the package in your tracker to get the "details" screen? It shows a lot of info. Another option is to modify the columns that display to include the ones you are interested in.

My Big o' Cosmos has arrived in Houston @ 11:15am.....which is odd, since it's currently 10:55am. I'm going to assume FedEx is displaying in Eastern time. I hope those Houston guys aren't skipping out of work early today....or at least not before they put my packing on the next truck to Austin.

FedEx still showing 1lb/.5kg, yet it's left the facility and is in transit. Trying to log into MyFedex and it says "MyFedEx is currently unable to process your request. Try again later."

Also are you using/looking at the 'Classic' or old Myfedex or did you upgrade to using the New Myfedex? 'Classic' or old myfedex doesn't give dimensions. You have to upgrade to the New Myfedex. HTH

Weight went from 5.2 to 5.4 pounds. Fedex is adding tons of tape or something, lol!

Dimensions also went from 24.4 x 12.7 x 12.4 to 24.5 in. x 13 in. x 12.6 in.

I am so excited! EEE!

Big o' Cosmos arrived this morning. 8 lb 24x12x12 box, nothing earthshattering but worth the money (4 items and 1 bag). 2 heatshift laptop cooler pads, 1 set of pet brushes, 1 Bella Sara artist kit (92 pieces), 1-16" ultra-expand shopping tote.

No Texas air (a lot of rattling around in the box, I am sure the postal service was intrigued).

I got this plus a very useful Phillips iPhone / iPod charger set. Not quite a Rapture Survival Kit, but at least my phone will be charged to video the whole event.

Just opened mine, it was exactly the same. Stated weight was 4.9 lbs.

I do believe we've established the baseline level of crappe for this go-round. And it's pretty good, all things considered. Who doesn't like Batman? And non-toasted thighs? And a house free of pet hair? And bags that smush into tiny strawberry size? It's all good!

Thanks Woot!

According to FedEx I've got a 2.4lb bag coming. They predict delivery tomorrow but I predict today.

And the LORD said unto the chicken: "Go ye forth, and cross the road". And the chicken did go forth to cross the road, and there was much rejoicing.

Mine is 4.9 as well, so I fear that I'll get the same. Don't get me wrong, it is amazing the crap you get for $8.
But I was hopping for crap I could keep for myself. This all look like gifts.

Pinged from Newark NJ, to Fort Worth Texas.

As someone has already stated, it looks like

1 - Knight Flight Batman
1 - Heatshift Laptop Cooler
1 - Pet Zoom brushes
1 - Strawberry Bag

is going to be the standard bag, with a possible additional trinket. I think this is pretty good for the average bag.

Also, for my crappraisals, I won't be posting 3 lights (which is the score for the typical average Big o' Cosmos) for everyone that posts of one. That would just get annoying to people. So, just know if you have the average bag you have received a score of 3 Woot lights from the official crappraiser and enjoy your crap!
