That said, I am sorry you missed out.



so, basically it's the cats in the internets batting the email around before it gets to the destination. makes sense.

thanks.

Looks like they gave out 50 BOC on their last answer - 6 Down. That was cool. I am on a staycation and made it a point to play CrapWord while watching movies all day. Made my day to finally get the BOC in the end!!

What I have learned from this 50 fastest, is that I never had a chance. I got that last answer in almost instantaneously on my end. Slow computer and probably slow reaction times that felt fast are to blame. Knowing what I know now, I'd still do it all again and keep trying to improve.

Had gone to the gym, but I can now confirm that I was one of the lucky 50 from the last clue!

Thanks, Woot! This is BOC #11 for me in just about ~6 years of being active on Woot I think?

All 50 emails have been sent. Check your spam filters (turns out some don't like so much "crap"), congratulate yourself if you won, and weep bitter, crappy tears if you didn't. AND REMEMBER TO BUY YOUR CRAP PRONTO. IT WILL DISAPPEAR TOMORROW AT MIDNIGHT. joshobra, I'm looking at you.

Thank you so much for everyone who played. Ya'll have been an awesome crew. I had a blast and I hope you did too.



Thank YOU! If this was your puppy they should give you a raise or a bonus or something. Whom do we contact on your behalf?

Does anyone know if the message below could mean that I am not receiving some messages even in my SPAM folder? Is microsoft filtering email and choosing what I can and cannot receive?

You don't have junk here (hooray!)—Microsoft SmartScreen is working to keep it out of your inbox, too.

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

I think they cleared up the filter. BOC isn't popping up anything, and I've started to see some non wizard-of-oz items.

Oh no! Now it appears I missed it by 1 second! I think it would be easier to lose by 10 than by 1.

One winner posted a time of 23:12:something, leading me to feel more confident than I should have with my 23:10:05. Aw, well, still lots of fun.

And I really can't complain overall. I've a record of nearly 30 craps total over many years.

Shout-out to skemmis (and also ROGETRAY) for being an awesome gamekeeper/mod/staff/whatever-your-title-is on making this happen!

I'd say this was a pretty successful game (besides the fact that it took so many hours and some small hiccups that apparently only happened on my behalf near the end).

I'm really happy right now!!

Ha ha - just noticed they awarded the top 50 for the last clue......for a few minutes I felt a rush of superiority thinking I made Top 2. Three cheers to fleeting arrogance! I'm going to bed.

I thought you were just messing, like that one where the person tricked the other person into typing their password by telling them it appeared as asterisks when they saw it...does anyone get what I'm talking about? I'm tired.

Wait, when did you put your stolen BOC in your signature? That's so clever and I didn't notice it until now.

Learned an important lesson here. If I couldn't win among the 50, where I submitted the email as fast as humanly possible, it is hopeless that I could ever even come close to getting top 2. I don't even see any way I could improve my time all that much. I pre-entered the answer in OPEN outlook emails and had only to cut and paste the subject line clue. took a mere number of seconds. And not even top 50? How is this possible, but more importantly is there any poimt to my even trying in the future!

That's actually the last of the three BoC links I got and I edited my signature right after I bought it.

That's actually a pretty good idea! I'm going to put the link of the stolen BoC on my signature instead of the one I bought from.

Long story short:

1st BoC link - 404 error
2nd BoC link - Stolen after I let it sit for a few hours
3rd BoC link - FINALLY!

What's the worst that could happen next? Lost mail.
