Fedex called today to report that my Bandolier of Carrots has been officially declared as "lost". They are going to report it to woot and I have emailed woot. I am sad that I did not get to participate in the craptacular Bandolier of Carrots show and tell.

You would have been dissapointed anyways. They ran out of the ultra-cool thumbdrive locks and had to start giving away mediocre tv's and such.

Sorry I didnt post yall, I got home from out of town last night and found m HUGE TV at work. Took 4 of us to move it, it was heavy!

I worked all day today, and since then Ive been enjoying my new tV, thats why no pics, sorry folks. But rest assured I did get it, the same as the other two.

LUCKLY (woot must be pyshcic) they sold the playlink today, so now i can use the wireless keyboard and use the built in web browser so i can w00t in 62 inches!!!!

(did anyone elses tv arrive a little battered??? perhaps thats why its in a Blinged-Out Cabbage?)

BTW, most importantly, THANK YOU WOOT - youve just earned many more customers from those ive told around hre!

Congratulations to Pixelbender, CUatTHEFINISH and Monidel!

Nobody really thought that I'd run away from my home with Dave and Jason and go to live with a mere mortal, did they?

I'm guessing if they ever get tired of throwing darts at me to decide the winners of each week's Photoshop contest (after all, I am the world's largest 3-D bulletin board...), that my new home would be with whoever is owed the greatest number of as-yet-unshipped Monkey prizes. (You listening, Killingtime? Hmmm?)

I'm happy to have given a couple of you something to ponder while you waited for your third, extra-huge bonus craps though. It was a ton of fun while we waited.

How long before the next Bag-of-Crap? Thanksgiving? Christmas?

Yeah, mine did too. And it came without the English manual. ROFL. Oh well, what can you expect for $1?. TV works fine and the family is uber happy with it.


Stuck with a epic adventure DLP TV. Wanted the Ken Jennings head ;) (RIP TV 11/10/2009 - Color Wheel Shattered)

if you can scan it and send that would be awesome. As for the magnet, we haven't even put it on yet. Haven't seen the need to. No noise or anything. HD local channels look amazing. Watching the ND game.

EDIT: The magnet is for the power cord to reduce noise.

Agreed. I found that link when I was trying to get info on the web browser. Its windows CE based and I can't upgrade the flash on it or enable java or cookies, so its pretty darn limited (cant even sign into woot).

Thanks for the info on the mag, Cuat. I figured thats what it was for, she has an old house with crappy power here, I might give it a shot.

How does the magnet help? And, what noise are you talking about?

It's called a ferrite choke, helps reduce line noise and is not magnetic.

Congrats to all the lucky wooters who got the best crap of all!! I have to admit, having the whole "Ken Jennings Giant Head" thing going on significantly raised the anticipation levels of the unknown craps!

Thanks also to all you wooters that filled my days with laughs and smiles just reading all the posts in this forum!!

I can't wait for the next Bandolier of Carrots so we can do it all again!!

I am most likely the LAST person on here to have opened their Bandolier of Carrots. I went on a month long Euro-Trip right after the Woot-off ended... I am finally back to see what is inside my 6lb semi-large box of mystery... alas

My October 2006 Woot-Off B..O..C.. Loot:

1x Samsonite Camera Bag
1x Logitech Nuon Gamepad
2x Thumbdrive locks
1x Robo Raptor (without remote control) - Works fine in Free-Roam mode, and is very playful with the dogs! EDIT: Bought remote w/ manual on eBay for $6!
1x Continuous 34 feet of packaging Air Pillows
1x Large Family Dollar 2-PLY paper towel box

The image:

Woots-to-date: 21 (48 items) (I'm going to heaven!)
Notable Woots:
11/17/2006 Random carp x3 (1x Samsonite video camera bag, 1x Laptop power supply, 1x Thermos beer mug, 1x Light-up spinning christmas tree)
10/13/2006 Random carp x3 (1x Samsonite Carry-all, 1x Logitech Gamepad for Nuon, 1x Robo Raptor, 2x Thumbdrive locks)
7/12/2006 Random carp x3 (1x Samsonite Carry-all, 1x Logitech PC headset, 1x TDK Imaspeaker CD case, 1x "Hardly Working" book)

It comes on the woot main page just like all the other woots we are offered. It sells out very quick. If you're not online when it appears you won't experience the wonderful wootastic waiting game for your bag..of..crap.
