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

I did go right in and buy it right after getting my email, didn't want to risk this leaving it around in my cart business. Mine was actually a REPLY to my elfco email though, so I don't see how they could have fudged this up!



Mine was too! That's really weird.. I sent in a support ticket about it, hopefully it'll get resolved.

YES!! I'm ready! Email open, fingers on ctrl c and alt tab!!!


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

Me too. No idea on the exact seconds as yahoo only shows hour and minute, but I know I was pretty fast (as fast as evil network allows). I haven't gotten an e-mail yet, but I'm so hoping I do.

Yeah, I'm guessing it's a link problem.

With over a hundred of these kind of links, I think someone is pretty much bound to mess up. But that makes us humans and we're bound for mistakes.

I really hope this gets fixed though!

POSSIBLY THE BEST BoC THREAD EVER. (With a story!~)
O-M-G! That Squirrel stole my Bag of Crap!

Interesting, thanks. I sent mine almost instantly as well, so something must be off. I suspect you are right. In other words, I have no clue how close I may have been.

To find exact time for Yahoo (for the future), open/highlight the message, then Actions -> View full header.

Actually, he posted the wrong time for his attempt, most likely from a previous clue.

Here is my time, and I received an email: Wed, 24 Apr 2013 20:09:25 -0700 (PDT)

If you don't know you probably didn't get one!

They are giving the first 50 people who responded to the last clue a BOC

If that's serious, at least. Were you honestly minutes later than the clue?



Sorry... not sure where that one came from.

Actual time stamp for my outgoing email for elfco: 23:09:29 -0400

The last 3 items have been the sort of items that are traditional woot off enders, and yet it rolls on. And the blurb now says "do you see what's going on?"

Yay! I made the ctrl-c (hurrdurr, see what I did there? :P) For those curious, my time was 20:09:28.

Thank you, skemmis, and thank you, Woot.

p.s. kudos on the puzzle construction. I've tried my hand at writing crosswords before and it ain't as easy as it looks.
