It's nice, also, to not see a lot of people who just registered today, who don't care about the community, or are just here for the bag.

I'd feel bad for you, except those of us that have been playing since the start have talked about this at least 3 times already. Which means you have probably only been playing for a little while

If you really care, you can create a gmail account before the next clue even comes up.

Looks that way, and I'll be watching in the thread (this thread?) to see all the hauls. The next best thing to getting one is helping others celebrate or mock theirs!

And we learned something out of the clues and answers which would hopefully end up like Slumdog Millionaire.

I'm not an expert, but I'd guess it's not likely. I know our work email can have a 15 - 20 minute delay at the worst-of-times.

You could always sign up for a free shell account real quick and send emails from the command line using the local MTA.. that should be a little quicker.

You could even write a quick script and just run that with two arguments (subject & body) to save a little more time.

Hmm, I might just do that for the next crapword puzzle.

The BOC tracker I used to use hasn't been updated in forever. Is there one that is still around?

I don't think it's been mentioned for quite some time today. I've been on for hours and haven't seen it, so thanks for the heads up.


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

For what it's worth, last night when I struck Brigade of Chorizo gold on the very last clue of the night I did it using Outlook.

My work mail is pretty fast.. but then the mail server is internal and I manage it, plus there are only like 20 people that use it.

When I won my BoC yesterday though, I was actually using a GoDaddy POP account from my office. I was kinda surprised I won anything.

I finally got my email on 44 Across. If anyone's interested, I answered it at: 18:45:29

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.

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

At cross purposes,

Woot

To be honest, I think Google would be a better service than Yahoo in regards to e-mail.

I mean like, these guys has like massive datacenters at their disposal. Yahoo on the other hand, I think they've been lacking things for a while now.

But for me though when I won, I used my Mail app on my Macbook which pushes to GMail. But I did notice that it uploads for a couple seconds before it's goes on its merry way wheras it looked instant from the gmail app directly.

POSSIBLY THE BEST BoC THREAD EVER. (With a story!~)

When my last BoC came (April 1st), I was opening it with the wife and she was all, "What is this crap? You better not have paid very much for this."

She doesn't get it.
