Nearly had a heart attack waiting for that last one to change, frantically hitting f5 over and over, my boss within earshot having a conversation with a coworker, nothing on my screen but email windows and Woot.com... c'mon next clue!

Live by the crap. Die by the crap.

Relax is what we do when there is a laptop for sale with no clue.

Well, this is weird.

If nothing to do... no need to pee.

If new item coming up... has to pee.

I usually switch between the two really fast, just in case it pops up on the blog a split second faster. Instead of just refreshing one or the other.

Nope. But I've heard of it.

You are right it was easy, but I am surprised at the results. People do not know what Lasers are? Electrons? We are doomed!

My son just did a whole science fair project on Lasers.
(How color affects the absorption of single wavelength light energy.)

I learned more about lasers than I EVER wanted to know. But it snagged him a medal, as he swept the middle school division at County and he made it up to the State level competition with it. :D (At 10 years old and one of the youngest there since it's middle school and up.)

Yeah, I mean, I could understand forgetting the makeup of the atmosphere or whether dissolution constituted a chemical reaction, but some of those are worrisome.

I got the ones from 3/12, 4/12, 5/12 and 6/12

1 was great. 1 was good. 1 was meh and the last was just closed back up after I looked inside it and still sitting somewhere in my house collecting dust.

Let's hope this one is at least good.

When two people who love each other very much do it, it's Fraking. Or when applied to an object (as an adjective I think) as in "I hurt my hand trying to get that Fraking chronometer off!"

sample does not show whether multiple word answers are concatenated as one for the answer?

Yes, I was thinking they should have an autoresponder to let you know if your message was acceptable or not...

it would be nice if they had an auto reply message setup, but that would probably cause a lot of lag on their system with the volume of emails they are receiving...

Good thing that Woot doesn't ship to Korea. Their keyboard APM (actions per minute) are through the roof. Everyone would be doomed.

I still think that some are getting server advantages so if they get the page faster they can move to their email copy/paste faster. Still quite a bit of luck involved especially at this point with the answers known.

I think it would be a hoot for all of us to get a general idea of how many e-mails they are getting in response to the contest.

How about it Woot staffers?

"concatenated"? In a Woot forum?

There goes the neighborhood.
