I hope skemmis will come on and put us out of our misery when all emails are sent. Hope is fading... ;)

I sent 25 guesses in. I skipped several where I knew I could not get them in fast enough. Nothing like 40, though! Wow!

how do you see the seconds on a Gmail e-mail?

Open the message in your sent folder then click show original in the down arrow.

(apparently the image is too big)

40 attempts here too.

I guess I had a bunch of wrong answers and incorrect format along the way.

(Didn't include self messages to see how fast the e-mail is going)

Dear Woot gods:
Just so you know, I sent the right answer in first, then another email went out afterwards, so please keep that in mind.


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

Congrats everyone who got their email! I just received my glorious email! Again my time stamp was:

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.

Yup, I see what you did there... you made the "copy". Methinks you are sleepy.

I counted 46 attempts by me sent in. And I found out Yahoo! has limits on the number of tabs you can have open and a captcha type spam filter if you send out too many short e-mails to the same address. Lesson learned (I won the next to last one with gmail).

And I paid less, but only because I was mostly at work on a job where I no longer can keep on eye on Woot at the same time. Didn't get to purchase anything, either. But I had fun in the time I could spend here.

Over 200 people tried on the last one and still didn't get it even though they never gave up. It is what it is. Be thankful they decided to give any "extras" away.

I knew they were doing that, but I was posting about the BOC that was stolen earlier today and missed the last clue. I had my email all set to go, was just waiting for the clue. Oh well.

Congratulations to all that won! At least I can sleep tonight after being up for 48 hours :-)

Was curious if you'd show back up. I scored and was able to help my aunt score one off her bucket list. So all in all a good day.
