Whoa... I didn't even get to woot until this item was half sold and I not only got one, but got through almost immediately to purchase... And I just won concert tickets to Coheed and Cambria tonight!... Hmm, wonder what else I should use my luck streak for... When's the lottery drawing tonight ?

Gah, Wootalyzer popped a buy page before it was even showing up on the woot.com page and it still took like 4 minutes to get to the "this info is correct" button, and once I clicked that, it took another few minutes going nowhere, meanwhile the next item popped up. Eventually the attempted order just kicked on over to the next item instead.

Not mine:

GOT ONE!!!! Thank you Woot Gods!! Not as much fun (and frustration) as the April Fool's Bee-oh-see, but quite a rush! Anyone get a tracking number yet?

Shoot, I couldn't get the "I want one" to go through in time.

Plus I missed everything else I wanted from the wootoff haha.

First, Angry Birds comes out on the web, and then I manage to score my first Bag O' Crap. This is turning out to be an AWESOME day.

My second Big Orphaned Cetacea! Eee! Didn't think I'd be able to get through since I thought I only got the first one because I was at my boyfriend's who has super fast internet but I got on my slow DSL! WOOO!

Is that legal? Don't you have to be a certain age to buy from woot?

Similar situation here... my third one and first in nearly 2 years. Since I was able to get in on this with a very squirrelly internet connection I'm sure that this Big o' Cosmos is extra-craptacular.

Very cool! This is my 3rd Big o' Cosmos. I just happened to remember that this is about the time they put them up, so I hit up the site. I was wondering why it was taking so long to log in. I got my order placed when inventory was down to 10%. Talkin' about getting lucky! LoL

I don't need no stinking signature!

Seemed really easy to me too. I've gotten Big o' Cosmos a few times and its usually a nail biter. This was quick and easy. Confirm email within seconds.

Got to the Big Button page after entering cc code and ........ nothing. Server took forever to come back. By then, it was all over folks. Maybe next time.

Lol, not that excited only because I feel like I cheated all of you who worked hard to snag one. I heard a sound go off, then thirty seconds later decided to hit the buy button on wooters.us.

Basically, I feel like while you all ran, I nonchalantly drifted toward the checkout counter ;)

Best of luck everyone in 25 days.

I'll never follow another woot-off, this is the fifth repeat of the same experience... feverishly refresh between items, see the Big o' Cosmos and click I Want One IMMEDIATELY!... WOOT'S crap ass order system locks up. And to add insult to injury... coworker hears me cursing and walks into his office to calmly surf to woot and gets his order in with NO ISSUE. Bye Woot

I Bagged one for sure,
Only second evure
And now and I can finally Briith."

(sorry best on short notice)

Second Big o' Cosmos. Been trying since 2007. And my wife said I was supposed to head home. Hah! I wouldn't have been here on this big bad-apple pipe to Texas (don't think that did it really - Chicago always messes us up).
Signed, Happy in Mn.

I got all the way to pressing the big button before the server started lagging out on me and I think that was more the fact that it has to reload the page after your sale goes through in the background and it couldn't pull that up due to the load.



Agreed, I got all the way to the the "Processing" screen with the spinning dohicky on it before it lagged and only half loaded My Account page. I used to have a hard time getting to the page where you have to enter your PIN number!
