I think there are just a crapton of them. As in, this is lunch time. Just a guess, though, so if you decide to take a walk or go outside for some fresh air and miss out, it's not my fault.

Put the Crap in the Bag and step back and nobody will get hurt.

If only the damn page would load faster for me.

Are some of you using a script or something to grab the term off the page? That's the only way I can think of that you'd all be getting it so much faster.



My first BOC was just now. No script either. I had an email set up with the to line filled and answer in the body. I saw the last item sold out and I started spamming f5. Once the new one loaded it was triple click to highlight clue; ctrl-c. At the same time I was moving the mouse to the email window clicked that, (made sure I was on the subject line) and ctrl-v. Quickly moused to send and clicked.

Then I left my computer to go to the bathroom and get some more water. Now I suppose I will have to do some work.

IMO, those who are posting the answers isn't really helping the people whos been trying to get one for a while now (ie: myself).

I mean like it's cool and all to post it, but it basically defeats the purpose of me (and everyone else like me) trying to pull all the resources that I can to solve the puzzle.

In other words, good morning day 2! I may be a little cranky in the morning especially when I find out I missed a whole lot.

Oh wow, there are more left than I thought.. I hadn't checked for a little while though.

This is a really cool way to do the BoC sales. It really does give more people a chance at getting one. And it has been tons of fun.

Plus I get to taunt everyone in the community thread all day about how I won a BoC!!

I'm inclined to believe that its mostly fun for the people who have won, but a terrible idea for those who are unable to do this quickly enough to win.

I preferred the old way of crashing servers etc, felt like everytime I clicked it I actually had a chance. This time I'm just assuming I've lost but try anyways.

I feel pretty much the same way. Plus the fact that they have much less crap nowadays like a drought.

I think I would've had a chance of winning if they had like at least double the amount they're giving right now.

That reminds me, did I mention that I got my Boatful of Chimichangas on the last clue before bedtime last night? As in, I could sleep content not having to worry about what clues I was missing.

Victory. Sweet, sweet victory.

Why is it that everytime I click I want one", Woot makes me buy it? Don't they ever just want to know that, "Yes, I want one?" http://www.sflesch.com

How do you find out what time exactly you sent it? Gmail just says 1:06 PM for me.

Oh I found it, hit the arrow then hit "show original message"

And yes, I realize that these are just timestamps, but I imagine that they are actually not that far off from one another given that we're all mostly using large public-ish servers and what not.

I noticed that my subject line had a hyphen, which none of the others did. Thought I made a mistake, but it's right there in the robot vac page, so hopefully their filters are set up to take both hyphens and not hyphens. (The previous ones were not hyphenated, I don't think).
