Well, I got my order confirmation at 9:40 EDT (So 8:40 Woot time), and have not gotten a shipping number yet, so clearly that morning order thing isn't a perfect rule.
To be honest, though, I was expecting a delay due to the holiday. Everyone who's pissed and saying they'll never buy from woot! again: your loss. They are giving us otterific deals on stuff, and they don't have a consistent, guaranteed source of revenue (depends on what they are selling that day), so they can't higher more people just because they had tens thousands of buckyball sets to ship out. And people probably took off work for the Holiday weekend. I would hope woot! gives their employees vacation time. Just give them a break.
