At 5 MB/sec write speed, it would take over 7 hours to fill this.

But, since it has 10 MB/sec read, it would only take 3.5 hours to get the data off!

also for 128 GB but only USB 2.0 transferring files would take forever....I have a 16 GB which I haven't filled and that seems to take an eternity



Oh it's USB 2.0? Yeah that's kind of slow.

Sweet. Now when the Centon breaks 2 weeks after you get it, you can lose twice as much data as before!

The irony is I'm not buying anything extra from this, in fact I missed one or two things I would have bought because I was afraid I'd miss the last map piece. lol

First shalt thou take off the Holy Cap. Then, shalt thou progress to a depth of six feet. No more. No less. Six shalt be the number thou shalt go to, and the depth of your travel shall be six. Seven shalt thou not go, neither thou travel to five, excepting that thou then proceed to six. Eight is right out.

So, what happened with the Buccaneers of Caribbean this time around? It was a treasure map or something? I assume it is long gone.

Click on the word "Blog" above, right across from the big "Woot Beta" logo. Hit Ctrl F and search for TREASURE in all caps. When you find it, click on the blog post. Find the images of the item referenced in the post & scroll through until you've found a map piece. Collect 'em all and then assemble them however you see fit. I use GIMP. And viola...now you know what to look for.

And because that same person is probably going to ask, "What do I do with them?"

I'm guessing you have no clue what GIMP is and Paint.net & Photoshop probably seem foreign to you. So... Print the pieces out, cut them out, get some glue and start putting them together on your desk/counter/wall/wherever.

And tada...questions asked and answered.




Simple microsoft Paint program works as well...copy the pieces onto a blank document, then select them using the transparent option and place them together like a big puzzle

Okay, I spent the day collecting puzzle parts, only missing one, but what do I do when I finally get the last part?

This is a great gift to give to a frenemy.

Throw them off by giving them an unsuspecting high capacity thumb drive doomed to fail once the transfer precious files they wont be able to retrieve.

You'll thank me later...

128gb at 5mb write speed = 7 hours to fill it to the brim. Who would ever do that?


Done and done! ;)

Once you've got the map, type the letters that are red into a browser address bar following the pirate's trail.
