Eventually the banner will disappear, and there will be no banner. Some amount of time later, a new banner will appear with three new codes, and the cycle will repeat itself.



Ah, gotcha. Thank you fellow Wooters for the help. The stats are crazy on this :

Purchaser Seniority
0% joined today 0% one week old 0% one month old 0% one year old 100% > one year old

So 100% of ppl who got one have been with Woot over a yr. Not ONE person under a year old got one? Hmmmm.....

It finally showed up but way late. Finally checked out the WootStalker website. I am guessing it does a website grab at a set interval and then parses it for a specific Cloud image out of the page source code. I'm not sure how it does the URL. Maybe it is using some graphics/catchphrase image decoder, going to the URL and if it doesn't come back with an 404 error it'll put the link in the little text box? I guess people manually picking beat out the image finder and URL decoder?

I know the rules... I was just kidding. We all know that the mods are not for sale and that they do not even package the Bags. A lot of the mods aren't even in the Texas office.

Except ADQ...

She is going down to Texas to kick butt and chew bubble gum for me for messing up my Holiday Gift Guide order...

Sadly, she's all out of bubble gum....

except a few packages of Chiclets...

and that's not even real gum...

Just something she bought from some kids at the border so she wouldn't feel bad...

Not sure why they were selling it at the Canada border...

Anyway sorry I digressed.

For this Woot off are the URLs for Bungled Original Communicator on the main page, or on the product page images?

I just realized that when I tried to check out, I didn't see a place to type in the 3 digit verification code from my credit card, so was thinking maybe that's why it got denied. So I started the purchase of a regular item and got through to the final step, and it also never asked me for the 3 digit code on my credit card. Has Woot stopped doing this?

Yes, they stopped requiring those codes on the credit cards. In return, it seems that we have to log in more often.

I am happy that a lot of first timers are getting the bags of craps. Makes me feel better, even if I don't get one...

Spreading the joy of craps is always fun. ^_^ Except when you set the bag on fire and leave it on a porch...then for some reason the person isn't happy...Psh, ungrateful peeps...

Had a hunch when the banner that is up now would show up. Of course typed in all 3 urls and the 3rd one was the Bungled Original Communicator and I still got it. (I ordered at 7:02 but it took a while for me to come brag )

The banner just came back, but with the same URLS and all out of stock.

Just got back from L&L.

Not only did I miss one offering, I missed two crappy offerings.

Oh well, at least I won't starve to death.

Lo, and behold! The Chicken Katsu plate!



Also, I finally got a post up on deals.woot asking about what I should bring when I travel. I think the post fails to submit when its like 15-30 characters near the limit.

Post can be found here.
