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



Ponies?! That won't work out at all. My apartment doesn't allow pets other than cats. (Think I can disguise it?)

I put the coupon code into the cut/paste buffer. Since I know my CVV so well, it takes only one or two seconds to:

Click the CVV box, type the three digit code
Click the coupon box, hit CTRL-V, return.

And wait for the stupidly large gold button on the second screen.

I really wanted to use the coupon for the BOC just to see if I could get away with it, and it worked perfectly.

I can see by your white triangle that you don't visit Deals.Woot. Participation there is what earns the coupons. Posting Deals, asking questions, voting on deals and such is what you need to do. I've received several $5 coupons and even one for $20.

Just got my JumboWoot-o-coupon today too.

Kinda wished I got it sooner if you know what I mean (but I'm not complaining! MANY THANKS!). But I definitely wouldn't use it on the Barrel of Crops though.. since I think I just made it by the skin of my teeth by copying and pasting my CCV alone.

Also, is it just me... or there isn't much activity in this thread since friday. Oh well, maybe when the tracking codes start popping out should get the train going again.

ColonelCrap, if you're reading this.. keep up the good work with our bags!! I'd just like to let you know I'm really excited on whats in stored for me, and don't worry.. I'll tell the world (which I had on my last bag) how awesome it is!

Also, this time I might just ask someone (maybe a staff, if they're not too busy) to have someone look up my tracking number so I'd know when is the delivery date. Since I want to keep the size and weight a surprise for me this time around. :] I think it'll be fun and cool that way, maybe others may follow what I'm doing as well. It'll be fun! :D

Since you guys were all talking Roku, I'm hoping you'll be able to help me. First off, you'll have to forgive me for being pretty much technologically behind in most things by about 5-10 years. (I mean, I still have a standard cell phone that only sends text messages and am using a several-year-old desktop computer)

So, how exactly does a Roku work? If I were to buy one of those thingys and I'm guessing a subscription to hulu and/or netflix, how does it connect to those? Do I need to connect it to a telephone line? The computer? The current cable line? A wall outlet? Or what?

Is it really as simple as it sounds? Just a Roku and an internet subscription to some sort of streaming service?

For those of you that use a Roku or similar device, about how much are you paying per month, on average, for movies/TV? Our cable bill is about to go up to about $100/mo, and I'd really like to not pay that. Heh.

Thanks!

Colonel Crap, reporting for duty, sir.

Great distribution in the last deployment. Always grateful of whatever crap may or may not come our way. The new protocol of staggered offerings appears to have been well received and less of a burden on available resources. Good optimization on max-min.

(Ok, time to go dream again of a working laptop since my now former employer made me give theirs back. Now I have one less device for this war effort, but still somehow able to find and obtain the target.)

    The masses have been laying low for days. No signal from the Colonel to let us know when we can get out of the trenches. Mum's the word, or is that crickets?

    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 agree. Outdoors stuff would rock. There seemed to be plenty of it around the warehouse for the woot off..

    After many years of lurking on the Bunnies Ogling Carrots blogs, I have never seen folks actually kissing up to the Gods in hopes of some special crap.

    Since some of you must be convinced this works, I thought I would add a few pleas before mine is shipped.

    1. I would like all the mothers on 16 and Pregnant to have had a false pregnancy test.
    2. World Peace (Possibly should have been #1)
    3. A new inground pool with a few waterslides installed in my yard while I am sleeping tonight.
    4. A new, not refurb, Roomba Robot that both cooks and cleans.
    5. Homes for all the cats, dogs and unicorns on earth with humans that deserve them.
    6. Immortality
    7. Rainbows every Monday morning during my drive to work.
    8. A new Dyson that only sucks up evil.

    Thank you in advance.

    There used to always be a lot of discussion about what we'd expect to see in the scaffolding, what we'd like, etc. This hasn't happened a lot recently, because the scaffolding has been so bad/bland, but last time, there was a disproportionate amount of "special" crap, and it seemed like the woot staff really got into it, so the hopes and dreams of yore have returned.

    So, we are back to dreaming, and enjoying the wait/excitement/burning-upon-urination that is associated with scaffolding, and generally enjoying ourselves.

    Google for "Roku setup" or "Roku hands-on review" or similar. You'll find lots of how-to and such. Yes, they are easy, but unless you've done one it can be daunting. Just take your time and read read read. There is the setup of the Roku itself, then the paid stuff setups later. Both easy. You can use a Roku without any paid subscriptions, but it's not that great. The paid services make it 100% worth every penny.

    I pay about $20/month for my paid services on the Roku.

    I think what would be really fun for the Bunnies Ogling Carrots is to have a set of woot nesting boxes delivered. Each time a package gets delivered to my house, my 3 yr old son gets super excited and asks, "Is it toys". It would drive me crazy to have to keep answering, "I don't know" as I dig deeper into the boxes, eventually finding something train or fire engine related at the very end.
