(I promise that is all the pimping I will be doing)

POC#4 Now accepting entries until 9:10 pm CT, Terms & Conditions here: Woot Pieces of Crap IV: Your Crap Or Your Life

POC#3 Winner has been emailed!: Woot Pieces of Crap III: For The Love Of Crap
POC#2 Winner is number 526 of 1779 eligible entries! Chuck Obenschain has emailed back and accepted!: Woot Pieces of Crap II: Crap Nights
POC#1 Winner is number 701 out of 2372 eligible entries! Frances Mattox has emailed back and accepted!: Woot Pieces of Crap I: Crap Dawn

POC FAQ
Q. Do I need to put anything in the body of the email/ make a guess on the item?
A. Nope. It's just that easy- correct subject line (or close enough variation), everything else is gravy.

Q. How are you picking the winners?
A. Nothing too fancy- I wait til the end of the hour and let Outlook catch up. I eliminate any ineligible emails (not within the correct time, not the right subject) and then determine how many I have. I use a random number generator to choose between 1 (the first received email) and however many responses I got.

Q. What's that release your rules are mentioning?
A. You are wise to be suspicious of legalese. It's basically so we can get confirmation you agreed to the terms & conditions (linked above), the most harrowing of which is that we want to post your name in this thread.

Q. So what happens if you don't hear back from the winner?
A. We're giving everyone this week until 9/17 to respond. If they do not by then, we have all eligible emails saved and we'll redraw likely with a shorter time to respond to that email.

Q. How much do you want to smack all the people who are emailing you beyond the time limit you've provided?
A. You don't even know.

I just squeaked in under the deadline. Tried sending from my brand new Galaxy with no luck at all. Trusty old Acer running XP worked, though. Perhaps I need an Apple product. Hmmm.

Oh I see how it is. I couldn't find my computer under all this mess, and barely e-mailed in time... perhaps I need a robotic vacuum.

I would think, that like the Bundles of Crayons it won't be known until these people receive said POC's...

It sounds like it is only one item. That is why it is not "Bag Of" and is "Piece of" Crap instead.
