Ewww. That has probably been in someone else's ear. Might as well be selling used "massagers".

That's some bullshasteriskt. It's 12 drummers drumming, 11 pipers piping, 10 lords a leaping, etc.

So the working link is 660, but how could you get 660 instead of 550? Ugh...

Both 550 and 660 are dead links.

ETA: 660 works. It's just shenanigans.

They used a variation. 660 was the answer.

five golden rings from the song, then the one ring to rule them all? I dont even

My guess is that 660 came from:

(11 pipers piping) * (10 lords a leaping) * (5+1 golden rings)

5 from the song, plus one more to rule them all.

(EDIT: Or Woot could have gone with a different version of the song)

sparks...the answer was 550, not 660. I'm positive I got it first, but alas, 404 error.

Well - on each day on and after the 5th day, 5 golden rings were given. That's a total of 40 rings. But even that math doesn't work.

Per the lyrics to the song, it's 11 Pipers Piping, 10 Lords-a-leaping, and 5 Gold Rings. How did you get your numbers?

Apparently, from Wikipedia:

Wikipedia wrote:The text of the earliest printed version in English (as reproduced in the Iona and Peter Opies' The Oxford Dictionary of Nursery Rhymes),[1] is as follows:
The twelfth day of Christmas, | My true love sent to me | Twelve lords a-leaping, | Eleven pipers piping, etc.

Woot! I don't know what variation you used but it wasn't an American version. Bad Woot!

Credit where credit's due. That's funny right there.

wow, looks like you're right....I googled lords a leaping and the first result said 11....so that's what I went with. The wiki does say 10 though. hmmm.

This isn't fair. I know Woot wants to prevent robots and other nefarious types from sneakily getting a Board of Circuits via unscrupulous means but come on...

From wikipedia, the undeniable source of all human information:

There are many variations of this song in which the last four objects are arranged in a different order (for example—twelve lords a-leaping, eleven ladies (or dames a-) dancing, ten pipers piping, nine drummers drumming).[8] At least one version has "ten fiddlers fiddling," and another has "nine ladies waiting." Still another version alters the fourth gift to "four mockingbirds."

quoth the wikipedia

The text of the earliest printed version in English (as reproduced in the Iona and Peter Opies' The Oxford Dictionary of Nursery Rhymes),[1] is as follows:
The twelfth day of Christmas, | My true love sent to me | Twelve lords a-leaping, | Eleven pipers piping, | Ten ladies dancing, | Nine drummers drumming, | Eight maids a-milking, | Seven swans a-swimming, | Six geese a-laying, | Five gold rings, | Four colly birds, | Three French hens, | Two turtle doves, and | A partridge in a pear tree.

Really? 550 != 660. Someone needs to go back to math class.

Also it would be handy if they chose a font size that actually displayed the full code.

In other words, knowing things matters not. You have to cheat off Wikipedia to have any hope.

Travisdoesmath

Yeah, this is infuriating. A lot of these answers have poorly sourced numbers that have a multitude of answers, and getting them right is contingent on guessing what source Woot used, instead of having some care taken to only pick descriptions that have reasonable, unarguable definitions.

Oh nuts.. they're going for the FIRST version, not the more popular, current version... *grumblegrumble* I was pulling hair on that one.

Maybe the key here was to notice that the question used "a'leaping" instead of the more modern "a-leaping"?
