lol, never saw the confirmed order page pop up since the servers crashed. In fact, the first screen didn't even load the images correctly, so it was all plain text, and almost threw me off a bit. I sat there anxiously spamming "refresh and send info" over and over. Nothing. Still a blank page that says servers were down.

Then, my phone chimes and shows a new email notification from Woot. I thought, "Well that's odd, it's not 1am.....WAIT A MINUTE!"

Sure enough, when I clicked the notification, a beautiful confirmation email exposed itself to my eyes. So then I go back to my computer and hit refresh, and it still wouldn't load. I didn't care. I ran into the bathroom yelling and screaming where my fiance was getting ready and kissed her all over. Her response? "You better not have just bought another stupid Brick of Carbonite. I told you you weren't going to buy any more of that stupid junk!" My response? "It's not junk, honey. It's the equivilant to wonderful unicorn magic pooped out into a solid gold pot and sprinkled with pixie dust. You never know what it's going to look like when it comes out, but you don't care; it's freaking magical unicorn poop!"

Needless to say, I'm now 2-0 in this wonder game. Now I can continue life outside of my computer for a little while again.

What is the difference between a Random Crap, Brick of Carbonite, Adventure Crap, etc. that I see people posting. I think I've only ever seen the Brick of Carbonite? When do they offer the others, or am I completely off base here?

Thanks!

Appears they only sold 500 in this release (I thought I saw 2000 sold from the morning one). Was thrilled to snag a Brick of Carbonite and hope it's good.
We just had a yard sale to dump a bunch of items from random crap bags from here as well as other sites (sold a lot from Yugster - have stopped buying their crap bags).

Krap for me
Tee hee hee
Shopping spree
(I must pee)
A party
Squee-squee-squee
And Whoopee
Climb a tree
Look and see
Krap for me!

Err... um... sorry... Got excited there for a moment.

First time I've been logged in & watching when a Bifurcated Oily Cumquat came up, since they did the server upgrade and went to the new system of several small rushes for each woot-off.

Got to the confirmation page early, filled in my security code & hit the gold button.

It just froze.

Eventually I re-loaded. But it was over by then. Account & e-mail checks confirmed I didn't get one. So it goes. Maybe on more before this woot-off ends?

From the offerings last month:

Current numbers (updated each minute)
First sucker: ssiemonsma
Speed to first woot: 0m 8.620s
Last wooter to woot: NiteMare409
Last purchase time: 7:36:54 PM Central Time
Order pace: 1m 34.730s
Woot wage: $136.76
Woots sold: 2500

There is also no wooter to blame for sellout listed on it, so I don't think you can factor that into a Bundles of Clones

They actually sold 500 over 5 offerings during the woot-off. It's the same sale, technically, so it aggregates with each one. If you look at the stats, you'll see a total of 2500 over 5 "sales" at 20% each.

Trust me there are no more bags. They sell 2500 each time. Just look at the previous Bundles of Clones blogs. It will NOT say "last wooter to blame" anymore. And like I said before...that's a wrap.

Yup, haha. For the first time I got it during the 1st wave so pretty much I never had to worry about refreshing during every sellout. But I've been coming back to look out for interesting sales.

I could guess also that there might be another wave 1 or another 500 bags sometime later since I haven't seen the monkey, light or pigs on sale yet.

Also, I've been looking at the past Bundles of Clones, they all don't indicate a "wooter to blame saleout". Just so you know, I guess they want us to keep hoping for another wave to come by. It's just too early in the day to get to 2500!

Congrats to all those who managed to grab one! Now the waiting game begins! Be sure to try not to check the weight and or at least not the size of the bag when you get tracking, it makes it more fun to wait what's to come!

To those who haven't gotten one yet, just keep trying!

Unfortunately, the listing for the April Bag lists 'Last Wooter to Woot', and not 'Wooter to Blame for Sellout'. This might all for this Wootoff.

Luckily, I got one yesterday, although I have still been hanging on every item just for the thrill of having the Crap alarm go off! Nice job on the new format, ColonelCrap, it seems to be keeping us all engaged in the action!

"Random" is the official term. People use all sorts of "B of O of C" terms, since the forum auto-changes it anyway - even the initials and many of the creative variations, and varies over time how it changes it.

I as on the confirmation page in about 8 seconds, switched to the "BuyIt" screen soon after, and then Error messages let me know my wepon dry fired. After 5 "reloads" (back pg.) it no longer said Error, Woot just went on w/the next item sold.
After a minuet, I Checked My Account:0 & BEHOLD The PRIZED Flaming Brick of smoldering Carbonite is Won! O..YEHA!

Looks like 25-50 people got a little greedy and created a second account (or logged into their second account) to score a second bag.

when you put the words "Brick of Carbonite" into the forums (see how i used @ symbols to allow it to show) it comes up as something different that starts with B of C. Random crap is what they sometimes/used to call it, i have never seen someone put adventure crap so i cannot comment on that one

Funny, I've never had a problem typing BOC or Bag of Crap.

But I do like Basket of Cats as my B(something) O(something) C(something).
