They're going to have to step it up if they expect to fill the whole puzzle by the time the woot off is done, don't you think?

Yeah I won't be anywhere near a comp tomorrow. I'm giving myself one more hour (maybe) and then throwing in the towel

Up until now, I was happy every time I saw quotes like this. If you read the past couple pages, people are dropping like flies. Which probably helped me to win.

Unless they're just saying it and actually trying EXTRA hard instead o.0

Woot! There it is! Won on stern. Advice for gmail users: pop out compose window and have woot homepage set to 1/2 to 3/4 screen. No need to move between tabs. Just copy clue and paste into subject line. You should already have the crapword email address in the to field.

Congratulations! You spent wayyyyyy too much of your day on this stupid crossword puzzle, and are being handsomely rewarded with the opportunity to purchase a bag of useless crap.

DO NOT SHARE THIS URL WITH ANYONE BEFORE YOU HAVE COMPLETED YOUR TRANSACTION. There is only one BOC at the end of this rainbow, and if you give it to somebody else we can't help you. And make sure to buy it before Friday, 4/26, or it shall disappear into the ether.

http://www.woot.com/offers/this-part-doesn't-matter-to-you

Thanks for playing, and make sure to rub your victory in your fellow players' faces. That's sportsmanship.

At cross purposes,

Woot

Hmm.. I guess either California doesn't sell it or I've overlooked those stuff.

I usually just see A&W and MUG.

It usually sold in 6 packs of dark brown glass bottles in a cardboard carrier, so it might be in different part of the soda aisle than the standard coke/pepsi products.

Also, since I am out of the competition (sorry, woot told me to rub it in, so I gotta)

To: Crapword@woot.com

Subject
17-Across:
Will be something like - short summary of first geological period of the Paleozoic Era?

Body
Blurb of Cambrian

With that, you also get:
1 Down: Webb
3 Down: Opus (Magnum)
5 Down: Peoria (Wisconsin)
6 Down: Elfco (more like ElifIknow, amirite?)
7 Down: Tock

I used gmail in its own tab, I had the email address in and the cursor in the subject line so I could just CTRL+C, CTRL+Tab, CTRL+V, CTRL+Enter

Hmm, Opus may be a Bloom County clue, although that is very unlikely, and Peoria is in Illinois, but otherwise your work is quite sound.

It's just a guess. Could be something else, but it fits awful nice for being a coincidence.

It is, and I'm still addicted. Good job woot.

Also, hopefully this one is better than the last one, because our receptionist LOVES when I get these, but last time was a buzz kill when I opened it.

I also have BlogOfCannibals for 36 Across, it's the only thing that could possible work there.

55 Across should be another BOC answer, but I am stumped. I can't even figure out where the "of" goes yet.

Sorry, they were actually waiting to make the joint press conference after woot published the misleading question. Now both states are going to be pissed that I leaked it.
