Well, I farted around too long researching if this tv was a good buy and by the time I decided to buy, I was sol... then they put it back up. This confused me at first because ya know, this is Woot for chrissakes. They sell out then ta-da, gone. Right? Anyways, so I reload the page yesterday afternoon, dunno why really... maybe it was just fate or some innate unrecognized insecurity in my subconscious encouraging me to look and be discouraged yet again. But to my amazement, there it was, like some diety had sensed my loss and was making it right again. There it was, my 2nt chance... Frankly, it took a few minutes to get over the disbelief. But I hit the button and NOTHING happened, until the browser errored out. Back and try again...nothing. Again and again, crickets. Different browsers, no effect. I was shut out.. and frankly the rejection hurt. Apparantly WootCentralIT were in the washroom drinking beer and playing pinnacle.
Later, I got through on my ATT iphone (and they say their 3g service sux, feh) It was loading, finally. Yeah! woot! But Walrus Toting Halibut? Waiting list? Woot ain't got no stinkin' 'waiting list'? Or do they? I mean it sez right here, I'm on the waiting list but then I wonder, why is there no Waiting List section in MY Woot? I mean, I can track my purchases, track my shipping, change avitar, etc... but I can't see the status of my Waiting List? Confused... so I dig deeper and find this in the WootFAQ,
"I missed a deal. Can I still get it?No. Once a Woot deal expires or sells out, that's that. Period. We may offer it again at a later date. But we promise nothing, we allow no backorders, and we have no waiting/notification lists. Sorry. To the swift go the spoils of the race, or something."
