I don't know about that. I tried cooking a Woot monkey once, but all he did was scream...

My wife didn't want the skillet, to big and heavy. But she did like the idea of turning it over and cooking crepes on the back, so they get the logo in them!

But a Woot-Logo waffle/pancake iron I like.

Once that tracking number shows up that's when the real fun starts. All the guessing about how big your box really will be and what's in it. Then we find the real weight and start making predictions based on that. Followed by posts from the lucky few who get their bags really quickly. So, you start comparing bag sizes with people who've already got theirs... By the time it gets here you don't even care what's in it you just want to open it and know for sure what you got.

So I let slip to my wife this week-end that I succeeded in ordering yet another bag of crap...boy, was she less than pleased. Apparently the previous offerings, despite my excitement, did not live up to her expectations.

well, jokes on her. those year old calendars and reusable shopping bags and used earbuds are mine, I tell you, MINE!

I took all of the little junk like that out of my past Bunnies Ogling Carrots and put them in a box in a closet. You can't imagine the times that the multitude of those cheap sunpak camera tripods I got have come in handy. And earbuds are never NOT handy.

I am certainly ahead in the $$ spent vs item value in the Bunnies Ogling Carrots#39;s

Some items of note:
80GB Zune Refurb
10MP Kodak Camera
Total Gym Core (Chuck Norris!!!!)
Multiple Woot T-shirts.

More importantly to me is the Woot SWAG: Some items of note
Woot head and wrist sweat bands
Woot Brown paper bags with orange '?'
Woot monkeys
Worst Woot 2006 wooden plaque
Letter of appreciation from TPW
Letter and custom Bunnies Ogling Carrots form the good folks in the Seattle Woot office (except for the farts, they could have left those out of the box)

Fortunately, I do not have the same problem. My wife also enjoys getting her own BOC, so there is not arguement when I get one for myself.

Besides, I've sold a few of the items from the bags, so my net cost for all of the BOCs has been a profit. Hard to argue with that. Plus I've still got the rest of the crap to use and enjoy.

Phase one is underway..... the anticipation of finding out the size and weight of the shipment.

To me, this is almost as much fun as the anticipation of finding out what's in the box.

Last time, I was a bit disappointed that my box was smaller and lighter than most. Still, the contents were pretty good.

Can't wait till the shipments go out. It usually takes about 1 week from the date of purchase so I suspect we'll all start seeing shipping invoices tomorrow or Thursday.

Whatever I get...... thanks Woot!

Last round, placeholders started going out on the Tuesday following the offerings (i think). Fingers crossed. No word from the front lines yet though.

Actually, that's Phase 2. Phase 1 usually plays itself out the day the Bags are offered, or in this case, over the three days they were offered.
__________________________________________

The Phases of the Bag of Crap (according to DrGandalf):

Phase 1: The discussion of getting vs. not getting the Bag of Crap, with the usual reference to the cursed bots, Woot's horrible servers, and related.

Phase 2: The discussion of when will Woot finally ship the Bags, and did you get your tracking number, and the creation of the spreadsheet.

Phase 3: The discussion of how much the packages are predicted to weigh, how big they are, how Smartpost is sending them all around the country, and whether they are arriving early, late, or maybe never, and how to find out all the tracking information.

Phase 4: The revealing of the contents of the much awaited Bags of Crap, with much hooting and Wooting by those that are happy, some grumbling by those that are not, but with most folks happy that they got to play the game no matter what they got.

I've noticed this discrepancy myself. It seems like one system (deals.woot) communicates with the other system (the forums) only intermittently.

At the moment, my triangle is black at the top of the page, but purple on my posts. Go figger. It will straighten itself up eventually.

Extrapolating from the chart on http://deals.woot.com/questions which shows how many Wooters have each color of WootAngle, there are now 98993 registered Wooters.

I wonder how many of them were trying to score a Bag last week. Lots of players, few winners in the BOC hunt!

Well, I kind of posted a demographic yesterday.. if this is relevant to your question.

Barrel of Crops seniority:

25 people got the Barrel of Crops the same day they joined Woot.

And another:

Purchase history
1,275 users >25 Woots
650 users < 25 Woots
475 users <10 Woots
50 users 2nd Woot
50 users 1st Woot

Pretty interesting, huh?

And of course, 100% (or 2,500) users bought 1 Barrel of Crops.

Sorry, I guess I read it wrong. This site works too: http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/woot.com# but I don't think it's much useful but you could see that shark-fin looking thing there during the woot-off week. Prolly as not much help either.

When you put your mouse over the mail icon next your your name, right click and "copy link as" you would get:

http://www.woot.com/Forums/AddPost.aspx?ForumID=0&UserID=31793

(I underlined and bolded your number)

alternatively, you could just put the mouse over the mail icon and the URL preview on the bottom of my screen for example would show the same thing.

Now it'd be more interesting to see who has the lowest number now, lol.

I'd like to just toss out here, if anyone happens to have/gets any of those Gwen's Nest eco shopping bag size bags or the fancy beachy patterned shopping bags, I'm looking for em. I'd love to get my hands on at least a dozen or more, since I like to use them when shopping but I need 3 times as many bags cause I can't lift much weight. I hate using so many plastic bags at the store and the five reusables I've gotten from various bags of crap aren't nearly enough.

I'd be pleased as punch to accept any willing donations if they are out there as I'm sure someone out there has them and isn't using them or doesn't want them, but I won't know until I ask!
