No Complaints, I just shouldn't have allowed myself to start coveting the Chumby 1!

And No, the Cat didn't come with it - we're just thinking of shipping him out in nifty included corrugated Cat Toy.



I was thinking the same thing! ;D

Even the desktop app hates me...it tells me to please try again...and I know I am putting in the right password...first its taking 3 times as long for my package to get from one hub to another then it normally does, and now I can't even get on my fedex or fedex desktop!

I've got a question about package weight and dimensions. Originally the package was 1.0 lb, no dimensions. Friday it became 6.8 lbs, 13.1 x 13.1 x 13.1. Saturday it is now 6.4 lbs, 24.6 x 12.8 x 12.6. I understand the 1.0 lb was a placeholder but how did the package change weight and dimensions in the FedEx truck?

I was going to tell you that our Cat Railway/Airway Pipeline (C.R.A.P.) was in the last stages of R&D when I recently saw you, but I didn't want to let the cat out of the bag.

Got my crap a couple of days early. Same as jmac's and all the rest of you, except my last item was two, 4 foot HDMI cables.

No complaints, this was my best Big o' Cosmos. Thanks Woot!

Wait! I do have a complaint. Woot, why don't you splurge for a little more tape on the boxes? My letter fell out, AGAIN!

Hello Fellow Bucket of Chubbies winners.

Mine is still just a one pounder with NO size listed. So, am I just a poor place holding fool? Who knows? All my Big o' Cosmos's are just 1 pounders. BTW, what is a strawberry bag???

In one of my Big o' Cosmos's, I got a book called YOU ARE A LOSER. It detailed a scientist who seriously burned his penis and scrotum while using his lap top.....fully clothed. So don't use your laptop on your lap. Unless you like the smell of burnt meat.

Reference Page 86, "The Heat is On", You Are An Loser. ISBN 0-7407-3823-2

I don't have a penis or scrotum so I think those body parts are safe! But there's only one area that gets hot, so I hang that part off my legs so it won't touch me and it keeps it cooler~

Anyone having problems getting shipping information, I get it by going into my Woot! account and click on my tracking number there. Takes me right to FedEx.

Placeholder followed by estimate followed by actual. The 13.1^3 size is based on the formula in LEM's post (try page 24 or so). The final size was a real measurement taken at one of the depots.

Mine has left WI and still has to go to PA and back here to Ohio. Seems like there is quite a variety of crap after the Batman, pet hair brushes, strawberry bag and laptop cooler. I should be getting something extra at 6.6 lbs, so I'm pretty excited to see what. Oh Thursday, so far away. Still hopeful to get it a little early though.

Same here. I try to login via MyFedex, it tells me it's currently unable to process my request. Try the desktop app, won't accept the username/pw that I registered with, twice. Last update was yesterday saying it was 'in transit' from Hutchins, TX (coming to OR). Still a 1 lb place holder, due here on the 24th.

Also, no letters yet I suppose? Well, or no one who posts got a letter.

I received my Big Orphaned Cetacea yesterday and I'll say it was pretty good.

Set of 3 Petzoom brushes (we have 2 Shelties)
Laptop cooler
Set of Aqua Globes
Strawberry stuff bag
Knight Flight Batman

* BATMAN BATTERY PROBLEM SOLUTION *
Initially the controller wouldn't work and would not charge Batman. This was a common problem when the item sold on Woot previously. The problem is in the battery compartment of the controller. There are 2 molded plastic ridges on either side of the contact for the positive (+) side of each battery. The ridges are so high they don't allow the battery to make good contact. I shaved mine down with a small wood chisel. Something like an X-acto knife may work. Batman works fine and has not broken yet. ;^)

You can PM me if you need more details. I may post a photo.

  • 75 total wOOts including
  • 4/01/10 Adventure Crap
  • 12/25/09 Santa's Sack O' Crap
  • 10/23/08, 9/25/09, 3/26/10, 5/26/10, 6/24/10, 9/22/10, 10/21/10, 12/1/10, 1/25/11, 3/9/11, 5/11/11 and 3/22/12 Bundles of Crayons
  • 12 sellout.wOOts
  • 5 shirt.wOOts
  • No kids.wOOts (that I know of)

Stumpy 91 deserves a BIG TIME! woot quality post! His advice on shaving the little pieces on the controller thingy for the flying Batman that were preventing the batteries from making contact was RIGHT ON! We now do not have to throw away Batman. He shall fly till the enemies of freedom and rightousness are defeated and put away forever!.

Hats off to Stumpy 91. You are a marvelous human being!

By the way, I had to resort to using a single edge razor blade because I had no small chisel or x-acto knife. Watch out and do not cut yourself. Safety first!

My Bushel of Cats came yesterday and I wasn't here to receive it. Now I'll have to wait until tomorrow to pick it up at the post office. Does anyone know why I would have to sign for my package? The ticket they left me said I have to sign for it, I guess that's why they didn't just leave it for me.
