Got to the Antechamber of Doom again. DRAT! Guess they're right when they say that I'm probably in the 90% who won't get any crap. Better luck tomorrow!

Congrats to everyone who got one!!

Congratulations to those who were much quicker than I... Made it to the Antichamber of Doom, but that is as close as I've gotten so far.

Huh.. There's a shirt idea. I wanted crap, but all I got was an antichamber of doom.

I think it's my typing that needs a tuning. But also, for some reason my checkout button lagged. =(

It went to your cart right away, but for some reason didn't pop down for you to see it. You can see the cart update from 0 to 1. Feel bad for you, but at least I get to enjoy more of your videos.

I think you will get one tonight (Saturday night). You are improving every time. I think you would have had it tonight if you would have hovered over your cart right away.

Constructive criticism for you...

First: Firefox? Google Chrome that stuff. I honestly think you were too clicky for your own good. I've never had a problem with Chrome.

Second, you're losing valuable seconds copy pasting the bit.ly address. Have a second browser open on the side with "http://bit.ly/" ready to go... Then get the other page refreshing on the YouTube channel. Then go, jump to 25 or so seconds. Then type in the other browser window. Then go. Be firm, but don't rush rush rush. Remember, it's zen-like. You'll know it when you do it.

I had it, but yet it was sold out from under me. Tried buying it again and was told, sorry I could only have one. I never got one

If you see "Antichamber" it is guranteed you didn't win. I got one today (finally!) and pre-logged in at :57pm then had bit.ly/1 already in another window. Refreshed the youtube channel, had wife read number after I skipped to end of video. Then hit enter, I want one, check out, and the final big yellow button and it went through.

Never saw the Antichamber.

I think my biggest throw off today was the proceed to checkout button not automatically popping up for me. The other window with bit.ly would probably help out a bit. I've only ever used firefox so switching the chrome would just slow me down and make me lose more time.

I agree with this statement. If you see the Antichamber, all hope is lost. When I got mine on Day 2, no Antichamber.

I feel like I'm turing into a Basket of Cranberries mentor... You can do it, true believers.

I've found Chrome to be consistently faster than Firefox. That didn't used to be the case, but Chrome is just slick nowadays.

I had the exact same thing happen to me. I got all joyous when I got through the ACoDOOM only to get slapped in the face with a big fat DENIED!

Got one.

Here's what I did step by step:

Made sure I was logged into Woot at 12:55 am EST. Had two Chrome windows open. One to Woot's youtube page. One with just "http://www.bit.ly/" in the address bar. F5 F5 F5 at 12:59. Open video, skip to about 10 seconds from end. Click again to pause. Say the characters out loud emphasizing the capital letters so I could remember without going back. Alt+Tab to empty window and finish the bit.ly address. Click through to finish. Phew! Fifth time is the charm. Took about 10-12 seconds from video showing to hitting "Proceed to Checkout". You wooters really quickened my reflexes over the past five nights!

Good luck to the rest of you. Seven more chances!

I sent you a PM. I'd listen to Old Matador. Chrome is far faster than Firefox. Also, my PM discusses a third window strategy that I used to score tonight!
