I can't believe I missed that one. I had the right answer, and yet it was still sold out by the time I got there. I can't believe many people solved it faster than I did.

Yeah, I did it in kilometers. I still don't understand the format for input into the URL though. Nobody was kind enough to explain the whole multiple Xs in the URL thing to me.

I don't get it...guess my internet is too slow. Had the answer within 15 seconds, but was sold out before I even loaded the page...this time I think I'm really out, no use with slow latency.

In their defense we were complaining about how wikipedia listed different information on the previous ones. 21 miles is right in the strait of dover article.

This is a fantastic microphone, we got one in the last woot off and couldn't be happier with it. Two seperate circuit paths so whether you want a great USB mic or use the Xlr 1/4 " jack into an amp or sound system with phantom power, it will do what you want. Ours showed up looking like new.

For Mac users a cautionary note, when you plug in the USB to your Mac the gain level (in the Mac, not the mic) gets turned down by default. You'll have to dig into the utilities/midi/audio properties to turn it back up. Only quirk I can think of.

21 mi. is the length of the strait, the width is 3.75 mi.
I call shenanigans.

Let's say the URL bit given is something like /offers/12345, and the mathematical answer you solve for is 6789. Then the url you want to go to is www.woot.com/offers/123456789! At least, that's how I understood it. You just tack your answer on to the end of the given URL.

I seemed to get close but I'm not sure I'm typing the URL in right. I did woot.com/offers/044654cb2cc14a67bc0088f132597611376 and it didn't work.

That is the route for cross-channel swimmers, according to wiki

1.it gives you the /offers/...
2. Use woot.com/offers/...
3. put your answer to the end of that
4. Pray/make sacrifices to your chosen God

I actually got the right answer for this one, but for some reason, my link wouldnt work. Must have screwed up the copy/paste.

So many woots, so little time.

Yeah, I understood the width to be 3.75 miles as well. I have only interpreted one of these clues correctly today... and by "correctly" I mean in the same manner as the person who wrote them. Oh well.

It shouldn't matter if you do it in metric, in inches, in grains of salt, in avg tapeworm lengths.

At the end of the day the unit of measurement cancels out lol.

x UnitLength / y unitlength = x/y

Wow, it seems as though my browser is cutting some of the numbers off they way they display the hint. Thank you.

But they list it as 20.7 mi. I guess I needed to round UP before rounding down.

In the wiki article, the number 3.75 was actually saying that the narrowest part was approximately 3.75 miles north of a given landmark. The actual crossing is over 20 miles, which is why it's such a challenge for swimmers to do it. 3.75 miles swimming, while certainly a good swim, is not particularly challenging.

Hey all. Could you do me a favor? Pretty please? With whip cream on top?

Could you post your Crapschmidt posts over in the World of Woot thread?

Reason is that Sam, the creator, is watching that thread for feedback and issues as they arise. He can't check every product thread and get his job done too. He has writing to do!

We'd appreciate your help. Plus, if there is a booboo in a clue, the first two people that report it in THAT thread, get a special Private Message from Sam. But only if you post in that thread.

So let's use the product threads for talking about the product and posting cute cat/dog pictures.


GO FASTER, SERVERS!

Those X's are representing the numbers already in the url after the offer....It goes www.woot.com/offers/12345678

and then you tack on the numbers you found in the equation right next to those numbers so it would be like www.woot.com/offers/123456789999

I thought the same as you, but we both misread the info. ... at a point 3.75 miles NE of Dover

I bet it rounds differently, though.

The problem is the given values of each aren't direct conversions of each other.
the strait on wikipedia is 21 Mi or 34 KM which are not 2 equal values.

Ahah! I see it now. I totally skipped over the word "from" in that sentence so I saw the 3.75 as a width, not the distance from the narrowest section. Thanks!
