*snickers* Speculation among the household is that the lucky last to woot a Bouts of Consternation gets everything they couldn't figure out how to fit into the other boxes. The alternative theory is that it will be whatever minimum they can get by with.

My theory is this: My label is floating out there, and there's a whole mountain of bunches of carrots, and some lonely guy who is told: Go label those boxes.

To that unsung hero of the shipping department, trailing a streamer of not-sticky backing as he or she furiously tags and bags a mound of boxes, I salute you!

3lbs of crap incoming to my house June 2nd!

Dimensions 14in x 10.2in x 8.6in

Which is slightly bigger than what I got last time but weighs less.

Hmmm... perhaps a lot of Texas Air in my rations?

Also noticed a few fellow wooters with dimensions that were exactly the same, with a slight variation in weight.

Also, no word from the Colonel about the deployment of rations... how weird.

Is the Colonel hiding something?

3. Don't get too excited. For the first few days most people will probably have some sort of cubed dimensions. This is because in the beginning the dimensions are not real. They are guesstimated by FedEx based on weight (which may or may not be accurate). Here's the famous formula for you to check:

SIDE = ( 330 * WEIGHT ) ^ (1/3)
(side in inches, weight in lbs)

If it matches your dimensions to a few tenths of an inch - you know they are not real. That's for smaller packages. Those over 15lbs would always have the "dimensions" of a 15lbs package (or was it 16)... Again not real...



For what it's worth, Fedex's site has this new (?) equation:

Dimensional Weight = (L x W x H)/139

Do you have a link to the formula? Is it in pounds and inches? From this the generic side from given weight would be SIDE = (139 * WEIGHT)^(1/3), which is the same as above but with significantly smaller factor...

Here's the link may be international but domestic should only vary slightly.

After digging a bit deeper, it does appear that FedEx uses different factors for domestic and international dimensional weights. According to this it is 194 for domestic. However, that is still a FedEx domestic rate. I could not find any reference to SmartPost dimensional calculations, which may be even more generous... Like 330... At least for now the formula seems to work. One of my previous BоC's came home with a generic 1lb weight and it listed dimensions as 6.93 in. x 6.93 in. x 6.93 in., which fall into the (h*w*d)/330 formula to two decimal points...

Yup Logged in to my fedex account to find no dimensions. it is set on 3day delivery though.
Hopefully it will be useful for the wife or maybe something for us to fight over haha.

It would be awesome if there is a 2.5 ssd or even a regular. Mine has been flaky in the laptop for a couple months.

Wish everyone luck in this. & also notice we can message each other it looks like on this new look. Score for trying to help someone.

Well, thanks to my baby boy for preferring to eat all night rather than sleep *mama's a zombie*, I got the heads up to check FedEx again. And lo, my crap appears to have been initiated! At nearly 11 o'clock, you guys have some late workers there! I'll check the tracking with MyFedEx tomorrow, the mobile site just has standard placeholder information. Thank you, TT!

148 and counting: 64 Woots (inc. 8 Bundles of Clones), 25 Wines, 15 Shirts, 7 Sellouts, 32 Kids, 5 Homes
May the Crap be ever in your favor.

I downloaded the FedEx desktop application and created a FedEx account (only need name and email). Not sure if there is another way to bypass the app, but it's a nice app and I don't mind it.
Have a look earlier in this discussion, I'm sure if there is another way it was posted with all that FedEx/Bøç copy-pasta.

anyone know if fedex will update in the night? is this a "day shift" only updating period? Mine still says 1lb with no dimensions..

Also, I checked the other orders I made and they had weights (7.1lb etc) but no dimensions also... maybe I'm not looking in the right place on fedex?

Dr. Woot says we're expecting a little Bundle of Coocoocachoo at 12 x 9.6 x 9.5 and weighing in at 3.5 lbs.

A reminder to those with 1 pounders...it'll grow! If it's currently listed at 1 lb, it's probably a fedex "placeholder"...so don't despair...
