Merry Christmas to the bots!

Bah humbug to the mechanicsc...

Got to the order page immediately, confirmation page sat and spun for 30 mins, no love.

Hey woot, why didn't you do it like last year? Anything to take the bots out of the game? Please?

Sigh... No Santa Sack for me again after sitting at the order screen with it loading for thirty minutes or so. When it FINALLY clicked over, of course, it was sold out.

Congrats to all that managed to get through and Merry Christmas to everybody!

Well, it was a good run. Snagged one of them for 5 years in a row on 12/25, but shut out this time. Congrats to all that got one!

My first Christmas crap. 3rd in all. Took 23 minutes and several time outs. Had 3 tabs trying to complete the deal. YAY! I was doing the victory dance and my wife said, You look proud of yourself, what did you do? I said triumphantly, I GOT CRAP!!!! She wasn't impressed. She only wanted to know how much it cost. Geez, what a buzzkill. (married 27 years)

No go this time. I got the first screen (password) after 15 minutes of spinning, but crashed out after that. I blame Comcast. When I'm at work with the T1 circuit (slow but low latency) I have much better luck than at home with my 'super fast' consumer grade crappy cable connection.

Download a huge file fast? No problem. Get a timely connection on a time critical service? Nope... bet Comcast is throttling it in favor of their preferred customers and providers.

Thanks anyway, Woot. Still have last month's under the tree, to be opened in a few hours ;)

Look upon my Avatar, ye whiny, and despair!

At least there IS a consolation prize (for me anyway) .... I just love watching this forum to see what people get. It isn't the same as getting it, but it is pretty fun.

I am also quite happy to see so many first timers getting one. I remember when I was new and was so sad that I never got a bag.

Got to admit tho, it does suck to lose out >_>

Those servers crashed harder than an inexperienced driver driving in snow for the first time.

In for one. Really strange it went so fast this time and that was after I gave up getting the Bag of Coal when the servers seemed to be overwhelmed right at midnight. Came back just one more time to check if it was sold out about 10 minutes after the hour and wham bam thank you woot it went through without a hitch and even got immediate confirmation. And yes I have been good this year. Merry Christmas Woot!

Saw the bag. Hit the want one button. Got a crappy server page. Not what I really wanted. Dear Santa, please bring Woot a server with decent capacity and a pony for my sister this year. You can skip the pony. Love, Ricky

Yeah it sucked. Been waiting since 11:30 to be the first to click woot. Clicked Woot. Page loading... 5 mins later[servers crappy]. Reload button. (Get one)appears. "Click"

Page starts to load... [servers crappy]

What sucks is that this was going to be my first Bag of Coal because in the past I didn't know what it was when I saw it. Now that I know, my page doesn't load.

Typing on one of the fastest Macbook Pro available and it doesn't even load because of people are overloading the server by making bots that auto-buy as soon as its available. There is no way someone buys a woot within a fraction of a second.

I can't believe I got one. I lost track of time while playing a game. It was 12:15 when I quit the game. It took another 10 minutes to load the Woot! page, but when it loaded, I clicked the buy button and it went right through.

Yea, I clicked right away when it first showed up. you'd think there'd be some sort of order to this. but it seems it's just random. If you click on the 'I want one', you should get one reserved for you.

When I die, my epitaph on my headstone might be, "His greatest regret - never getting a Bundle of Coats on Woot.com."

Congrats to those who got one, and Merry Christmas!

Well I missed out again, I think my IP address must be blocked or something, cause even if I am clicking in the first few seconds... Crap just does not come my way... Hey, maybe that's a good thing.
.
In any case, May All You Wooters, and All the Woot Staff, Have a Very Merry Christmas, with a Blessed and Healthy New Year.

Thanks for keeping me on my toes.

YAY! After more than four years of trying, I finally bought a Bundle of Coats! WOOT WOOT!

I finally got one. I got on late, and finally clicked and ordered confirmed at 25 minutes into the woot.

I have been hit and miss with the stuff I get, the last item I got was the marinater, Which broke after 2 uses. Woot sent me an RMA and a refund.

Lets hope at least one item is usable.

I was logging in within 15 seconds, never got through. Real bummer after the lucky ones got a Bag of Coal after being 5+ minutes late to the party. Hope I get a better chance next time. :-(

In just under the wire.

I hit the "buy it now" button before news that the Bag of Coal was sold out came to #wootoff. I got the "you're all set" page after.

Boo. Yah.

My colored box^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H qube has turned dark red^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H brown. I don't really need to show off a list of everything I've wooted anymore, do I?

I love the forum rumblings after a Bag of Coal 3000 super happy people vs 10,000 super angry people. I think we should work it out over an epic game of Red Rover.
