I clicked immediately and it was already sold out. That was crazy.

Yes, I have a feeling that when the numbers are posted we are going to see that there were very few sold. I know that people are fast, but that was just insane.

I clicked immediately and was placed in the "Antechamber". I finally got to a screen to buy the BoC, but was told it was sold out.

@barkwoot: I didn't even make it to the "Antechamber". That sounds awesome.

Apparently it sold out in "one minute, seventeen seconds if you want to be pedantic about it." I totally missed it by a minute.

I am wondering what other social media sites we should be watching? I think the only one left is MySpace! lol

forgot about reddit, but I never use that site. Wonder how to go about "following" them on reddit?

So you have to be a social media whore to get stuff from Woot! on their birthday, yet they don't allow social media deals to be posted.

Nope, too busy randomly guessing state quarters in @pemberducky's thread.

@joshaw: I guess it's awesome that I got that far... Still no BoC though.

The "AnteChamber" said something to the effect of "you're in the waiting room, but don't get your hopes up, you're not likely to get one. Lots of people want these and we don't have many..."

It would refresh every few seconds and finally brought me to an account login page and then the page with the ridiculously large gold button to finalize the order. There was a note at the top though saying the sale was sold out.

It actually sold out in a minute and seventeen seconds!

I managed to get in, and I'm still refreshing my account page to check that its really there!

And it is!

Looking at the heat maps, they are VERY spotty, which makes me think that the total number of bags in each of these offerings is very small, maybe not even the 500 that the mini-sales have been.

I clicked the tweet 36 seconds after it was placed, got put into the waiting chamber, and came out a loser.

vote-for1vote-against

Nope. It could be the fact that I don't tweet or do other social media. My day will come.

vote-for1vote-against

Yes, I scored one. They went very fast.

I just scored the Twitter one like ten minutes ago. I'm so happy! Good thing I set up the mobile alerts on the Woot twitter and forgot to turn it off because I was about to go to sleep already. It scared me cause it was like "whooooomp.. whoooomp... whooomp" on my phone, I saw the word "crap" on the message, and then I was like HURDLES TO TWITTER!

Good thing I didn't give up just yet! [jumping for joy]

#HappyBirthday again to Woot! Wishing you guys many more years to come! :]

[puts out a cake and candle]

Really, I was so happy when I clicked that magic gold button and it took me to the buy page with no problems.. I thought it was only just a dream.

I totally got it by chance. Had the woot twitter page open in a different tab and went to close it just as it showed a new post. Here's hoping for good birthday crap that is better crap than the usual crap they send.
