servers crashed, it happens a lot. I am sure staff will be here in a minute, I know @prettywootprincess had trouble too.

yeah I have issues too with this. Just remember 1,000,000 people are trying to get 1/1500. That's .0015 chance you'll get one.

and you are lucky you got that far. I can't even get past the I want one button.

Actually, this was handled better by far than it usually is. They may have the caching problem between woot and deals finally worked out. I note that whenever woot bites the big one, deals becomes sluggish, and may have only four icons instead of five, but still works.

On the other hand, all your sad tales of woe are all normal descriptions for wootoffs, aren't they? You each have my sympathy. Imagine MY dismay when stupid golf bags came up after it was gone? Where's my danged monkey?

@shrdlu: yeah I want the Albino monkey that was discussed right after CES.

@hobbit: Me, too. And I consider that good. Often times I never even see the "I want one" button.

@anotherhiggins: I think the only reason I got that lucky is because work upgraded THEIR servers!

I didn't even get a chance to try this go around, right when I walked in the door from work, the golf bag came on. Missed this one will try again. Servers suck. The first bag I got I had to fight for. refreshed tons a times

@volks06: I have never gotten a bag, really I don't care. I kind of consider it like snipe hunting

vote-for2vote-against

@hobbit: I have not been to lucky with the bags I have received though. It was all well worth the $8 but some stuff I have no use for. It is just fun waiting and wondering what you will get in the next one

I want the Box of Calendars I like those

vote-for1vote-against

I feel your pain. Yet again, I hit the ridiculously large button and got a 'whoops, that wasn't supposed to happen' error page. I always go check my order history just in case it went through anyway, but so far, luck hasn't been kind to me.

I don't expect to ever make it in time, but will probably keep trying. It's part of the game. @hobbit is probably right, but if there aren't any clucking fools holding the bag, then snipe hunting would be much more boring. ;)

@hobbit: I've "won" two bags of crap. Both included a box of calendars that I didn't want. I'd be happy to give you some expired calendars if you'd like.
