Same here, I guess I can't type the info fast enough.

The way I did it is this, have your email open, with the crapword@woot.com address already in your "to" line. Wait for the product to change, and if there is a crossword clue, quickly copy and paste it into the subject line, while thinking of the answer. Type your answer in, and hit send, all within a period of about 5 seconds. I did 9 of the answers this way, got 7 correct, and won on the previous one.

This is what I'm doing, and a couple times I thought I got it in really fast. But apparently not fast enough. That's ok. This has been fun anyway.

Guess I'm just too slow. This is a young man's game (if you're older than 40 and have won, I don't wanna hear about it!). Back to my game of checkers.

Wait, can bath salts be shipped to Utah, or is that kinda like the wine restriction?

Okay, this is Avon.

Looking at the crossword, I bet a lot of you had this filled in already.

I would doubt that since it was a pretty easy one, but anything is possible I guess. GL to you both.

I'd really rather someone else get it, since I already won my BOC. But he wanted to join the fun (but I'm the one sitting and hanging out.) Hahaha, it's adding a bit of fun to his day. They are trying to finish up maintenance on the Wind Turbines and all this high wind has been bothersome (but good for production!)

Sorry, but the email specifically says, "Thanks for playing, and make sure to rub your victory in your fellow players' faces. That's sportsmanship." And I am over 40.

So consider your face rubbed.

I realized the exact same thing. I'm also neglecting the other sites since I'm so focused on just woot.com.

Someone else predicted 41-a was oomph, which would give altp?, which doesn't seem likely. Perhaps the clues will get trickier as things progress.
