You know.. I have a question: When the final piece of the maps pop up, is it going to be a mad dash, with only a privilaged few getting the goods, or is it going to be a bit more relaxed?

Well, good luck to all of you! Have looked and clicked at that thing for awhile now and get nothing. Will continue to enjoy the rest of you trying and your comments. Off to work.

You can always give it another try later, we still have plenty of pieces to find.

I finally feel like I have a chance again now that the Bags of Crap aren't being posted on social media sites.

I am going to be so mad if the last puzzle piece points to a social media site.

So how many pieces have been given out, already? Because some people, like me, sleep at night before coming to work, you know? I knew I should have called off work today, darn it.

When you see it, click through to that sale's detail page, and look for the map fragment.

Put the map fragments together throughout the course of each day - there'll be one map on Tuesday and one on Wednesday.

THEN ALL SHALL BE REVEALED

3rd piece

For those of you who don't have a program to join the images, GIMP is a free program that you can use. It primarily is a Linux program, but there is a windows version too:

http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

It is not really easy to figure out how to use GIMP, so here are some step-by-step instructions:



Using GIMP to join images

1) In the Toolbox, select the "Paths Tool: Create and edit paths". Or use the "b" shortcut key.

2) Go around the image, clicking at each point or indent. When you get to the end, click a point next to the first, and drag it on top of the first to create a loop.

3) From the menu above the image, choose: Select-->From Path

4) Then choose: Edit-->Copy

5) Now create a new image to paste it into. File-->New-->Template=1600x1200 (I picked a large one so that I can paste all the pieces into it).

6) On the new image choose: Edit-->Paste. On the Toolbox, select the crossbars "Move" tool, or use the "m" shortcut key. Move the pasted image to where you want it.

7) Choose: Layer-->Anchor Layer

8) Save all altered images, and wait for the next piece.

Have Fun!

So should we be worried that the top right of the map looks like it could say "worst woot off ever"?

Maybe it's just me, but the idea of printing them, cutting them out, then putting the map together manually just seems too awesome to pass up.

Or, you could just use paint.

Open each part in a separate window, use select tool to surround shape and ctrl-c copy, paste onto blank sheet with transparent background selected, repeat with each piece.

This is what I do! lol It is sooooo much easier than to go here, download here, install this, don't install spamware, open new program I've NEVER used before, figure out what is what... that's ok. I'll stick with good ol' fashioned paint. XD

The "usual" places already have copies stitched together. I'm using paint.net It's kinda fun doing it yourself.

Gimp is more akin to Photoshop. Once installed, you can do things that Paint can't do.

Agree. GIMP is not spamware. It's open source alternative to Photoshop. But seriously, you can just print them and cut them out.

This is why I love working from home! Nothing is better. No nagging co-workers, no boss telling me to get my butt somewhere's (unless my wife is home from her job), and I can break and do whatever I want, whenever I want! But I guess I'm being lazy today. But unlike regular jobs... I have to work 7 days a week. But the payoff is great.

So here's a question. Are the map fragments relegated to the main woot tab or will the sub-woots have them as well?

So, there is no boxes saying click to install this this this and this? I hate that cause there is always at least 1 box that is left clicked and something stupid installs and messes things up. Also, DID NOT mean to offend anyone with the spamware comment. Just so annoying when people do that. Didn't mean to accuse, just... I just fixed everything back again because of bloatware programs installing stuff behind my ... wallpaper. lol Anyway, I'll check it out!
