If you click on "Blog" you get a link that you can just copy and paste in your comment.

Since it is free, you account's space is limited and there is a chance for spam, I can't be sure. I get some spam, but it very little and it is not necessarily from them. I just bring it up as something to consider before you sing up to anything free.



Actually, any account will work, from flickr to google web pages.

Woot then caches a copy on their servers, so get the sizing right to begin with. If you don't, even if you fix the picture, the wrong one will be displayed.

Keep the width to 450 pixels or less. (The forums will cut off your pictures, with no scroll bars if they are too wide.)

Links to the full size images are always appreciated as well.

I'm excited! This is my 6th crap over the years (most of my jobs won't allow me to woot@work.

The best crap I've had was actually my wife's first crap. She got a complete TruBamboo Kitchend & Sushi pack. (A $49.95 value). Although most everything had some chips out of it, but not enough to keep us from using it.

I was short crapped once.. it seems my box was missing the tape from the bottom. Unsure if it left Woot that way or if it "fell off" during shipping. Around that same time, a ton of people were being short crapped and were finding open boxes delivered. That's stopped happening now, fortunately.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to my crap, and while I'd be happy with anything, I'd love to get some electronics! I could really use a new BluRay (mine died).

It depends on the definition of "best"

The most valuable is a toss up between a 10 MP Kodak camera and an 80 GB zune.

The "best" item that I love the most, its a multi-way Tie. I love my paper Woot bag with orange '?', I love my 2 letters of appreciate from Woot. I also really love the headband and sweat bands.

    The best was a 64GB USB drive in my first ever Crap. It didn't work at first, but I formatted it and it still works now. That Bunnies Ogling Carrots had a bunch of cool stuff, fake snow, set of 4 wireless phones, flying monkey, 10 sansas and a whole bunch more. Easily worth whatever I get from future Bunnies Ogling Carrots.

    Worst crap would be the USB barking dog thing I got in my last Bunnies Ogling Carrots It doesn't work, but it is sitting on my desk right now staring at me.

    I've only had one previous Bunnies Ogling Carrots but between that and the wide range of things Woot sells that I would have no use for whatsoever, I know I _shouldn't_ get my hopes up. I still am, though!

    (Said Bunnies Ogling Carrots contained a couple of packs of cedar grilling planks (I don't grill), a couple of tabletop tripods (I don't do photography or own a camera), and a fancy retro analogue alarm clock/radio that supposedly retails for $140. That might have been an upgrade to my $10 Sony Dream Machine alarm clock, but these days I'm rocking a Chumby, which is way better suited to my needs. My parents were willing to take them off my hands, though.)

    I've managed 4 previous Bunnies Ogling Carrots over the years. The best item that I've gotten was a sound activated snowman speaker.

    My kids absolutely love this thing. We've used it the last 2 Christmases and it's the first decoration the kids want displayed. We hook it up and play Christmas music through it while decorating the tree and spend many other nights sitting by the lights of the tree singing Christmas songs together. It has been worth many times more than the $8 dollars I paid for the Bunnies Ogling Carrots

    Coupon!! I've done that before, twice IIRC. It's very daring, but you feel that much more awesome if you snag a bag AND came prepared with a coupon. Just have it ready, even in the copy/paste buffer already, and you really won't waste any time on it.

    I, too, managed to snag a bag and used the coupon provided to me by ThunderThighs for winning a round of Woot Clue last month. I had no expectations of actually getting a bag, but you're right in saying getting one AND using a coupon does feel very satisfying

    Best item in a Barrel of Crops I've received? I'd have to say the Self-Inflatable Queen Sized Bed. I've used it a few times. It's a great travel companion. Second would be the Amazing Spider-Man Wall Clock. Third would be 5 boxes of Christmas Cards.

    Most used items: Bottle drying rack (arrived about a month before she did), some black and white flowered bags I use for groceries, nice mechanical pencils, an HDMI cable, and an electric picture frame/alarm clock my husband keeps on his desk at work.

    Favorite item: Woot ? bucket. (Anyone else remember that dude that got a pallet of buckets?)

    Strangest items: Small toy wooden hammer. Piece of plastic molded hair. The butt of a toy plastic rifle. Nearly destroyed portable DVD player - looked like someone stood on it on pavement and spun in circles. (All from different craps.)

    While I seem to have good luck getting strange random things I have yet to hit woot gold and get something truly epic. Most of the time I end up giving things away to friends or family who can use it or trading it for store credit at Bookmans.

    I've gotten a couple buckets of chowder and have received several useful and interesting little things, but the most notable things were:

    In my first ever Barrel of Crops, Christmas '08 I received 3 Sansas. 2 of them were clips, one 2g and one 4g, and one of the bigger ones. I gave them all to people who didn't have an mp3 player =3 (one of those people being myself).

    But I also got a pair of these In-ceiling speakers I had no intention of installing, so I sold them on Craigslist to some guy who builds houses. :D So, good deal all around =^_^=

    Oh, man, I forgot all about the Santa speaker, I have one of those! Remind me in 8.5 months!

    Best stuff? All of those Sansas. I think I got four or five in one box, only one was bricked. And another thing I got that I use is earlier this year I got a brand spanking new Microsoft Berry colored wireless mouse. Since I just got a new netbook late last year, timing was impeccable.

    Worst was all of those day of the week calendars that fell apart. I tossed those without taking the cellophane off of them. I knew what to expect since I bought them earlier.

    They must have had a billion or so of them. The first batch I ordered I'd planned on handing out as Christmas presents and keep a few. Well, they were all the same calendar. So, Woot! sent out replacements, I think it was two for every one you ordered.

    And they fell apart. *lol*

    So when I saw them in the box, out they went. I think that was the same box with the Maclaren golf stuff (hat, backpack), which never got used, either.

    So now that I have finally gotten my very first Bunnies Ogling Carrots I think it fitting to wrap it up and give it to my son for his birthday. I figure I'll have to abandon the forum when people start receiving their packages, or I'll start second-guessing my decision to gift it. (And no, it won't be his only gift.

    My best had two Star Trek bobbleheads, a thing of very nice tea, a broken hard drive, a Zune 30GB that's still working two years later, a Zune car charger that I'm using still, and a pair of nice Zune earbuds(which, regretfully, died after a few months of use. I'm hard on earbuds). Oh, there was also a framed film cell from the Revenge of the Sith.

    (Box was more exciting than contents: 2 golf hats, golf backpack, 3 plastic lawn sprinklers, and 3 2010 Cr*p or Fact desk calenders. Hats and backpack went to local homeless charity, sprinklers to Goodwill, and calendars converted to scratch pads.)

    So now that I have finally gotten my very first Bunnies Ogling Carrots I think it fitting to wrap it up and give it to my son for his birthday. I figure I'll have to abandon the forum when people start receiving their packages, or I'll start second-guessing my decision to gift it. (And no, it won't be his only gift. A son who goes out of his way to bring me a Woot monkey from CES is very special!)



    That is super cool of you.

    While I earnestly await my Barrel of Crops since I haven't had once since May of 2011, for me the real win is conquering the servers and getting through. I don't really care about what it actually in the bag.

    My best bag item was the High School Musical clock that I turned into a Woot Bag of Carp clock.

    Make some more and put 'em on etsy or eBay! I would pay like 15 bucks for that!
