Nice title change, woot! Nice. It was so simple, but so effective!
...or you can trade in your bag for what's behind door number one...
Woo! In for my second Big o' Cosmos! It's a little disheartening to see the guy sitting next to me get in AFTER me, and get his order in BEFORE me though...I thought for sure he stole mine.
My fourth bag, and by far the easiest one. I think I refreshed at just the right time.
I got it. I actually got it. Thank you for helping me lose my Big o' Cosmos virginity today, woot.
I <3 you.
That was about the easiest Big o' Cosmos purchase I've ever had.
First one didn't go through (said error on page), put in my password again, clicked the button and submitted. No lag at all.
Oh and the little square thing next to my name is green now
Got my Big o' Cosmos!

LOVE YOU WOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!
Anything cool the previous times? Maybe I will get some size 3 diapers and other goodies for fun as I am a single dad with 4 kids (2 under 2)and maybe a new car ;) j/k I forgot - this isn't Oprah (Ba$terdized Oprahe Creation) but all love still to Woot.
GOT ONE!! Thank you Woot Gods, just when I was ready to give up on the whole Big o' Cosmos thing, I get to the order and buy screens in near record time and the order goes through!
Now looking forward to several weeks of Smartpost tracking excitement!

i think it was the gods at woot putting a snafu in those using bots/scripts and allowing those who manually do everything a chance. yay woot!
Can't believe it. After 7 or 8 long years of Wooting, I finally got a Big o' Cosmos.
It was there, I had it, typed in the c/c security code (after taking FOREVER to load) and then...... "SOLD OUT".
I can't remember the last time there was krapp on the first day of a wootoff...
Took a few tries but finally got one! Thanks Woot! Can't wait...
Clicked "I WANT ONE" - long delay, then order page came up - entered security code, hit the magic gold button, and 10 minutes later, the page times out. Why must you taunt me yet again, Woot?
SO HAPPY!! After years of trying my order went through! I finally get to see inside this magical mystery Big o' Cosmos!! A very successful Wootethon for me!
I wasted this entire day watching the woot0off and after many years, I finally got first Big o' Cosmos! Thanks Woot, the day was not totally wasted. Looking forward to it!!
HAHA! Snagged one, finally!
And now, the waiting.
Not fair!!! I clicked to submit the order & got 'There was an error placing your order. Please verify that all the fields below are correct and try again'.
I submitted my info again and got 'There was an error placing your order. Please verify that all the fields below are correct and try again.
This sale is sold out.'
I want my Big Orphaned Cetacea!!
AMEN! Couldn't have said it better.

Step 1: discussion of..
Step 1a: great thrill of getting a Big o' Cosmos
Step 1b: moaning and gnashing of teeth
Step 2: Wait for shipping update. Misc discussion of how great woot is, what the rules are, etc.
Step 3: posting of shipping notices (1-2 weeks out) with 1 lb sizes etc. and education of noobs regarding the letter and such.
Step 4: updates with packages sizes and weights (2 weeks out). This accompanied by questions about why one's shipping information does not include the weight.
Step 5: Big o' Cosmos results start trickling in (3-4 weeks out) with pictures and descriptions.
Step 5a: moaning about crappy crap and hazzas for wonder crap
Step 5b: reminders from knightghost or someone that you should read the rules about crap.
Step 6: reports surface of a letter (or two, three, etc.). Picture of said letter comes 1 hour or so later.
Step 5c: continued trickle of pictures and lists of crap
Step 6a: the Fedex notice of pending pallet arrival is reported to the letter recipients.
Step 6b: Pallet of bootie arrives at letter recipient's residence (2-3 weeks from today)
Step 6c: video of pallet arriving with accompanying pictures of the haul is posted
Step 6d: congratulations are posted with subconscious (or fully conscious) feeling of envy and remorse.
Step 7: drop off of posts and interest
Step 8: next wootoff (4-5 weeks hence)
I can't wait for another round of anticipation, excitement, let-down, and then renewed anticipation and, finally, more sleepless nights hitting F5...
don't care what you call it...glad I got my Big o' Cosmos!
my second Bridge Over Calcasieu!!!! i love you woot!!!! please send flying screaming monkeys.....
Woo(t) Hoo!!! Thanks Wootalyzer, I just adopted a Whale!
Can't believe how fast it went through. Each page loaded instantly which I've never seen before. I must have somehow been one of the earliest to get it.
For anyone bummed they didn't win don't feel all that bad. Go to your nearest .99 cent store, ask the manager what is on clearance for you hard earned $8 and you'll pretty much end up with what you get here. The fun really is in the winning. The actual prizes....well to each his own.
I think I got one never got confirmation but says so in my what I bought. funny it was only one, wasted a lot of time looking for the I want 3. Oh well my second Booger on Cookies is coming woohoo
OH how sweet it is to finally take a bag from the Woot shelf. It only took like 2yrs to get one but who's counting.
Now I am just dreaming of what will be in my box.

Got the the order page after waiting FOREVER and only had to enter my CC security number and submit. Sat here crossing fingers. Then the PAGE TIMED OUT. :-((( When I git it refreshed ... "This item is sold out". I'm bout ready to "split the sheet" with Woot. Have sat here ALL DAY ... for NOTHING! I could have driven to their office quicker than the servers are running.
BAD WOOT ... BAD, BAD BAD!!!
similar luck here, my friend. I cliked buy one, waited ages for the order page to load, entered my security infor for my card, then submitted it only to get..... the woot homepage and no order in my account. DAMN!
Not cool, woot. not cool.
Wow ... twilight zone time ... I actually not only got my Big o' Cosmos, but had a 2nd order page opened up ... could I have ordered 2X ???
Then I get to the comments page and there is only 1 comment showing ... Holy Crap Batman!
It's been soooooo long since I got in on a Big o' Cosmos, I didn't think it was possible from the Left Coast anymore!
Got me a nice Big Orphaned Cetacea.

My daughter wondered why I was crying. I told her that it was because I entered my credit card information and entered the wrong security code. By the time I put in the right one it was sold out.
Holy Bat Crapman...my first ever Big o' Cosmos after trying for 5 YEARS!
In for one...this will be my first bag under new ownership.
Awesome! Got it AFTER the servers crashed. That's a first. 3rd Barton's Oyster Cracker

First Big o' Cosmos in more than a year. Thanks, Woot!
