We have been married 13 years. I am just being silly for the forums and of course trying to get her to enjoy the forums as much as I do.

I am an unpaid, unsanctioned (and possibly unwanted) Wootvangilist. Converting the masses, one family member at a time.

    Good job on the recruitment, even if it means another "competitor" and thus lower odds for Bunnies Ogling Carrots for ME. (*smacks you for THAT part*)
    I'm fairly certain that Woot, Inc. isn't complaining about your wootvangelizing, however! LOL

    And I know you were playing. What I was getting out, though, is.....She's GOING TO GET HER WAY, no matter what you say, argue, or believe. Accept it. Embrace it. It's one of the laws of marriage....indeed all male/female relationships. =P

    May the Crap be with you all!!!

    I know the feeling, I have turned so many once good, innocent folks onto woot. Now I see them sporting daily shirts, always asking me how I manage to get the Bunnies Ogling Carrots & how I know it is coming etc... One coworker has gotten 3 now and a friend was able to snag one as well. We also do many orders of multiple things to save on shipping. someone orders and we split the difference of the order total.

    One of the classics I like is Bandolier of Carrots. I have the Wootshirt of that one, which people always seem to enjoy even if they don't know the Woot! reference.



    But I think my favorite BOC is the Basket of Cats.

    I just noticed today is the 5th year anniversary of my 1st Woot! purchase! 72 purchases later and Woot is literally still the first thing I check on my phone each morning before I get out of bed. (I may have a problem.)

    I can honestly say that I've been very blessed to have had the chance to purchase multiple bags of crap over the last 5 years. The first bag I snatched was on 6/1/07! While each one has been a very exciting experience and I've always been able to do something with the craps, I've yet to get one of the 'wow' bags that a few lucky ones each time post pictures of. Maybe waiting for a bag during my 5th anniversary is my lucky time?

    Regardless, here's to the next five years! I'll certainly be sticking around for a while more.

    Thanks for the fun Woot!

    We should form a support group. We coulld have random almost monthly meetings. Admission to the meeting would require spending $8.00 on an almost impossible to get randomly appearing item. Once you've paid your admission fee you gain access to an online forum with people from all over the country with varying levels of the affliction.

    Dear Woot Gods,

    I can never use enough knives! I am prepping for the zombie doomsday! If not other things I like are woot shirts that will fit me (Men medium) and tablets because I am a lazy couch potato. If none are these are possible a roomba would be great, just so I can see my dogs reaction to this robotic vacuum trying to chase after him. He should give me a good laugh.

    Have a fun time packing crap, Your Loyal Wooter

    B a g of crap: 8.5 & still waiting for that letter!!!

    Can't wait until my very first Bunnies Ogling Carrots arrives! I've been watching vids of people opening anddescribing their bounty. Some were good. Some were, well... crap.
    I'll be happy either way. Just thrilled to have finally scored a Bunnies Ogling Carrots after all these years.
    If the WOOT gods are reading this, I'm the minority in a sorority at my house. Even the pets are all gals. Please send man stuff.

    I think we got the same things, I have the items you listed as well. I am pretty sure they are fruit scented trash bags, for recycling.

    It puts the crap inside the bag or it gets the hose again.

    Thanks woot! can't wait to post the unboxing!



    Well, the wife couldn't hold out to see if our Bushel Of Cotton had a Dyson vac, so we pulled the trigger on the DC25 on woot!VIP today.

    Warning non-Bunnies Ogling Carrots related post below


    Does anyone have a Roku box? My dad has all his CDs rippe to his pc but then he burns them to cd to play them on his stereo. I want to get him a streamer, but it's an 18 hour drive to his house so I need something easy to set up. I need it to be so easy it makes PnP look like quantum physics.

    Is there someone easier than Roku? AppleTV is not an option

    I got a veebeam in the January wootoff. It is a usb dongle that plugs into your computer and wirelessly transmits to a device hooked up to your TV or receiver. I had trouble with my firewall at first and tech support was less than stellar (located in England, weird business hours).

    Does anyone have a Roku box? My dad has all his CDs rippe to his pc but then he burns them to cd to play them on his stereo. I want to get him a streamer, but it's an 18 hour drive to his house so I need something easy to set up. I need it to be so easy it makes PnP look like quantum physics.

    Is there someone easier than Roku? AppleTV is not an option

    Thanks

    I have heard My Media is fairly easy to use. Should give it a try.

    I'm hoping my scaffolding has something to do with monkeys. After the woot-off was over, I told my wife I'd done something bad. Her first response? "Does it involve Woot! Monkeys?" She knows me too well. I bought 3. :-P

    I'd also really enjoy some outdoor equipment. Wife is recovering from a serious, long-term illness, and we're just getting back into woodsy stuff. Both of us are East Texas backwoods kids, so being stuck inside for most of the last four years has been rough, and we've lost much (actually most) of our hiking and camping equipment, either due to neglect or it "walking away" from our storage, and we're constantly broke, so it's hard to replace a tent or camp cooking equipment with the little left over at the end of the month. Backpacks or sleeping bags or tents or something would really be awesome.

    Honestly, though, I'm just excited to "get to play" as they say.

    I'll second that recommendation. I have two of those, and they are great. Not only will it stream from your computers on your network or from the Interwebz, it will play from a USB drive (flash or HD). It can play any video or audio format I have tried on it.

    Mine are both re-spiffed, and cost about $50 each.

    I don't know about the other things people have recommended, but I do that with a Roku and a free server/app called Plex.

    You install the server on the computer with the music/video/photos/whatever, and you install the app on the Roku from their store. It's pretty easy to set up and use.

    I got them from eCOST.com. Currently available at $46.99, plus shipping. I think the shipping is about the same if you buy two, so if you need more than one, get them at the same time.

    Back on the topic of the Bags of Crap,



    I spent my $5 Woot coupon on the BOC, but I just got a brand spanking new $5 coupon in my email from JumboWoot.

    Thanks to JumboWoot and all the other Woot Ghods!

    I update it when I remember. For this one I've been moving my home office down to the basement so all I have is an iPad to work with. Editing the signature field doesn't work well on it.

    You're much more patient than me, I was afraid to take the time to enter it on a Bunnies Ogling Carrots

    On another note, speed-reading the latest posts, its nice to hear [Spoiler Alert] we're all getting ponies.

    in case you were about to ask, that's a big kitty with a 5:00 shadow cooking a T-Bone steak.
