I really like that one in principal but as it worked out, after buying my first item, the subsequent two purchases attempted died in repeated server failures. One at the last big gold button (repeatedly), the other just clicking the initial 'want one' button. Kinda like buying an expensive soda that provides 25 cent refills for the rest of the day and so making it a great deal, but the soda machine is broken every time you try to get one.
I absolutely do not ascribe that to foul play, as both items sold quickly and lots of people reported similar problems. Its still a disappointment, especially given the resources that now could (should?) be backing Woot.
And FWIW I didn't expect to see Bundles of Crayons in this Wootoff because of the previous week. However Woot dissed anyone not using Facebook; they only posted the Bundles of Crayons announcement once on Twitter; all subsequent were (as far as I've heard) facebook only.
Look upon my Avatar, ye whiny, and despair!
