​Has it really been 260 fortnights? Has Woot existed for one-hundredth of a millennium already? Where did those two Roman lustra go? Yes, this month Woot celebrates 70 dog years of questionable business decisions and occasionally reliable customer service - and we're passing the jubilation on to you with our Woot 10 celebration! Please enjoy:

Our live birthday Wootcast, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. PST, Friday, July 11: A full day of jinks both hi- and lo-, streamed live from the Woot studios! The centerpiece will be a participatory ecommerce experience utterly unlike anything ever yet attempted anywhere by anybody. We'll reveal more later. Seriously, this is gonna be insane.

$10 daily shirts at Shirt.Woot: All month long, our shirt store is turning back the price clock with $10 featured shirts every day! Let's party like it's 2004 except we didn't have a T-shirt store in 2004 so more like 2007 but that's confusing with the whole 10-year-anniversary thing so let's just say 2004! Awooh!

Woot Vault product descriptions: With all this partying going on, who's got time to write new product descriptions for every single Today's Woot deal? Not us! So we're flipping through our stash of thousands of product writeups and featuring the choicest deep cuts in the main writeup space on each Woot site.

Games, videos, giveaways, animal fights, and more: We're working on all kinds of fun to celebrate ten years of Woot in the most fitting of ways: with a scattershot, slapped-together jumble of ill-conceived folly. Catch it!

Most of all, Woot 10 is a gift to thank you, the fans, for keeping us alive as we near puberty. You don't even have to buy anything. But you know, come on, we've gone to a lot of trouble here. Would it kill you to flip us a couple of bucks?

I thank god I'm not working Fridays, so I don't have to take off work Friday. Because that would be difficult to explain.

You Know You've Been on Woot Too Long When... You see the banner ad and immediately go, "but Woot’s birthday isn't until July 12th!"

Pardon me, would you have any bags of crap?

Will this mean another sign-a-long starring Jason Toon? Let us hope.

Meh....

10 - too young to drive, too old to wear diapers. Although hitting double digits is sorta cool.

Indecision may or may not be my problem.

If I want to wear diapers, then by golly, I'll wear diapers.

I remember the good old days when Woot...oh wait, I still love you guys!!! Even after you sent me giant shards of a broken 3-foot wine glass in a Babies on Cribs one time.

Seriously, though, you guys are awesome and happy almost b-day! :D

Coupon code Woot 10 isn't working for me. Perhaps it doesn't work on shirt woot.

Jason and Pemberducky both still work here! Jason did scale back a bit to pursue his heart's desire but he's still part of the team and still writes for us every week.

Hi, I'm one of the writers. My powers are limited but I'll do what I can.

I thought they both were still around! I was getting confused for a moment but then again I am always confused.

Can't wait to see how pemberducky tops last years birthday performance.

Nifty! I would advocate you spend some time preparing drink recipes for all to enjoy and really liven up that party atmosphere. Like a 'Wootie Colada', 'Monte Collins', or a 'Red Mortimer'.

Just say'n.

They gave away 500 Babies on Cribs#39;s at 8:10 PST to test the servers. All of the birthday stuff is happening next Friday.

Woot was born on July 11?

I was born on July 11.

I must exploit this somehow. I must.

(I've got nothing.)

Actually the birthday is July 12, they are just celebrating on July 11 because no one wants to work on Saturday!

This is Wooterific! Hopefully you guys might throw some Bag of Cr.ap's are way instead of one at a time on FB; now that would be worth taking off for. Woot Woot....Oh dang; I'm off because I'm a Wootaholic and still in diapers...:P

Sorry for the misspelling; censorship sux!

Don't know if I'll be able to make it to the celebrations because real-life and family-matters is taking over my life in a rude way ... so Happy Birthday to Woot. You're turning into a pre-teen. May the gods help us all.

$10 t-shirts, live broadcasts, dogs mating with cats, and I thought I heard something about 72 Virgins stuffed into one lucky buyers Big ol' Crybaby. I'm in.

I'm not sure when I started following Woot but my first order was on Feb 16, 2006 for a BeeOhCee and it was loaded with goodies. I remember that it had a 250GB HD (a pretty big deal then) and a new Palm Pilot (also a big deal). I can remember checking my loot against closing auction prices on eBay and I had $450 worth of stuff. Not only that, but the BeeOhCee would stay up for quite a while - you didn't have to sprain a finger trying to get a BeeOhCee in the few nanoseconds that they now are up. Now, these days I don't even try because my last several BeeOhCee's are really truly junk now and probably not worth five bucks. But, it's the fun that counts and I still enjoy the site. I enjoyed a bit more when the daily deal was mostly gadgets and generally inexpensive at that. I don't really need a new vacuum cleaner or TV very often so I am less excited about seeing what each day's deal is though I do still check. Just in case. Any successful company will have growing pains.

I've been a woot fan for over a year now, but haven't really participated in the forums. I want to get a Babies on Cribs on Friday if possible, so how to I get assigned to a clan for the world of wootcraft competition?
