Wow. I haven't seen the servers pounded this hard in awhile. So hard in fact I feel comfortable poubnding out this message.

[ed]
It took me almost 2 minutes to find it. I feel a fool. I actually did a CTRL+F for "bag" and found it. Put alas, my highlight was blocking the fact it was active.

Hohoho! CRAP.

No hohocrap for me. Im still trying

vote-for6vote-against

still trying... not gunna happen
dammit why didnt I read the desscription quicker!

vote-for6vote-against

I got a new message this time that there was a problem with the servers and Google was halting traffic to the site to avoid creating more problems...

vote-for4vote-against

Has anyone gotten past the 503? Or seen even an INKLING of a page?

vote-for4vote-against

Also, my grammar was bad. Should be "AN XMAS"

vote-for6vote-against

Got mine before the crash... super easy.

vote-for5vote-against

@jsoko: Dude. Aahhh! I was on it AS SOON as the deal turned, I even found the word.

..damn.

Why didn't I just click it..

Was it the order page?
[eded] Suck if it sold out.

Access to the webpage was denied
It is likely that the server hosting the webpage has been overloaded or encountered an error. In order to avoid causing too much traffic and making the situation worse, Google Chrome has temporarily stopped allowing requests to the server.

@drchops: some people on other questions here are reporting scoring BOC's

vote-for4vote-against

@drchops: keep trying! I don't think we are sold out yet!

No, it went to a secret santa boc page with it's own link to buy.

vote-for-7vote-against

the bag hasn't even dropped yet.. get a wootalyzer guys. It's another 10 minutes away at least. if not an hour and 10 minutes I forget the exact time it drops.

EDIT: SON OF A B-----

-------------

I could have sworn I read a post where someone documented the BOC Drops and the xmas ones were all at 12:30 or 1:30 or some odd-ball time

@cowboydann: Sorry bud... check the description of the current item.

vote-for4vote-against

@jsoko: A Christmas miracle maybe? :D
heh

vote-for4vote-against

@drchops: I'll check the rulebook, but I don't think scoring crap actually qualifies as a miracle...

vote-for4vote-against

@drchops: Maybe... I could use a good boc though, the last few have been crappy... Dec 7th wasn't too bad though.

vote-for4vote-against

Yes, 1 for me, 1 for my mon, and 1 for a friend of mine. Even used some jumbowoot coupons!

vote-for6vote-against

@missellienc: ok, now that's just showing off!! (LOL)

vote-for4vote-against

I'm gonna be kicking myself for awhile. I FOUND IT almost instantly and didn't click on it lol.. Damn.

vote-for4vote-against

Still trying...

I don't think its the servers crashing, its most likely the routers leading into and out of their ISP

Edit: finally got to the crap page... new set of 503's

vote-for6vote-against

@missellienc: I was going to use mine but I didn't want to risk it

vote-for5vote-against

After about 300 503 errors, I finally got one. Just kept reloading and reloading.

vote-for13vote-against

@missellienc: WOW! Thanks a Million! My 1st B.O.C. EVER! You're a Christmas Angel!!

Edit: Rec'd my e-mail confirmation. Time for bed and sweet dreams. 'Night all!

@caron7: When this happens, click in the address bar and hit Enter. This will get you around Chrome's protection features. Surprised they don't have a built-in rule to exclude BoC's. Maybe they just want theirs.

vote-for4vote-against

Chrome is throttling requests.
I switched to FF and it worked.

vote-for4vote-against

Success for both me & mr. yrguide tonight...lucky us (I think).

Happy Holidays All!

vote-for4vote-against

score! In for 1 - but the button is now bouncing...

vote-for4vote-against

@missellienc: it worked but the funny thing is as soon as i clicked that link the main woot site worked fine so i ordered it from there to be on the safe side :P

vote-for3vote-against

After half an hour of 503's, it just came back up. Got one! :D

vote-for3vote-against

@dealseekerdude: You're very welcome... Merry Christmas!

vote-for6vote-against

Took a half an hour but in for my very first BOC! Christmas is definitely good this year.

vote-for4vote-against

Congrats to all who were able to grab one!

vote-for4vote-against

Your order number 8675309 for 1 Santa's Sack of Crap has been received by Woot on 12/25/2011 cheers Thanks, Woot!

vote-for3vote-against

@jsoko: Dude, the whole time it was Chrome.. I had a few bad ones in FireFox, but as soon as I got the "throttling" message I switched and BAM!

vote-for4vote-against

@omnichad: thanks - that's what I was doing and finally got through. Also tried Firefox, but that was worse...

vote-for5vote-against

Yay, finally got my first BOC after reloading the page over and over until I finally got through!

vote-for5vote-against

Multiple BOCs? On Christmas?

I dunno... seems kinda, not Christmas-y.

vote-for4vote-against

So for the good boys and girls that got a BOC for Christmas, where shall the official stocking-comparison forum be?

vote-for7vote-against

My first BOC... all those presents my ex-wife, Parents, and Santa got me for so many years seem so meaningless...

vote-for7vote-against

Hooray, got my BoC.

Victory for Zim!

@jsoko: Couldn't have done it without your support my friend, I just wouldn't have had the will to persevere. But you pushed me.. you pushed me to the top lol

Those were some of my darkest hours..
