Yeah, even with the spreadsheet they probably don't want to put clues up on items that sell out in two minutes.

That is a nice advantage for sure. I'm actually on vacation from work but I already tried to go to bed. I just wasn't sleepy at all so I figured I'd get back up and try my hand at getting a crossword answer in fast enough.

Congratulations. I stand corrected. Easier than I expected. I got mine on the LAM. You apparently ELOPEd.

Still, it wasn't nearly as fun nor as satisfying as my first BOC. I got that around 2:30 AM after the 10th or 12th server crash. The old fashioned way. (November 2, 2005)

Congrats.

I just realized that tomorrow is tech day for my son. (we homeschool) which means being up and out of the house early and presentable. xD I guess I should get some sleep.

Best of luck to EVERYONE waiting on clues, you'll make it!

Tech day = get up early go outside and do stuff in fancy clothes?

Tech day should be sit at home on your computer all day in whatever you want to wear.

Been playing along, but apparently not as fast as others. But I think I got flan in pretty fast. We'll see...

Guessed Flan, 30 seconds later got an E-mail alert. It was completely unrelated.

That's just a thing that crossword constructors do to tell you that you're looking for a custard from a Spanish-speaking country, more or less.

The worst was after the second clue, I got the woot daily update. Spam is bad enough, but when you see woot in the sender field, you get your hopes up even more.

Oh, I see now. Wow. This crossword thing is really tough!

I'd imagine it'd be worse later today with everyone awake, so I'm crossing my fingers I grab a bag before I fall asleep.

This stuff is probably easy for people who actually do crosswords...I'm hoping all those old folks are asleep by now!

Don't forget later they will start overlapping so some of the letters will already be filled in, making it even easier. Easier + way more people = not going to bother.

I certainly haven't messed with crosswords since 3rd grade, but I have managed to play Sudoku when I'm really bored with the newspapers these days.

So like this thing is basically who can Google then copy and paste the fastest pretty much!

I think I'm about to accept defeat once again since I know my odds are much worse later in the day.

Wow! That TURBO thing just won't sell!

8-Down: Fed. agency

The clues appear in the descriptions of various items (e.g. the digital camera now has one). Each clue fits in the crossword at http://d3gqasl9vmjfd8.cloudfront.net/7f625f75-c20d-41be-a4b8-eed68ba98d79.pdf

This looks like the first clue where the previous answers actually were important. Of course, I screwed it up.

There isn't a clue on every page at all. Look for the 8-Down clue on the Kodak Camera page that is up right now. So far they have always been in exactly the same spot when the item has a clue.
