I'll get nothing and like it.

vote-for9vote-against

Yup, missed out.. was hitting some golf balls in the back yard.

And here comes the complaints from people who don't use Facebook... >ducks<

vote-for4vote-against

Yes, got one! What a very pleasant surprise.

vote-for6vote-against

@druke: Nope, not a complaint. Just wasn't going to go looking for something that wasn't there like I did on April Fool's. When it wasn't there, I just walked away from the site. :)

And then sat down only to find I'd missed it by 12 minutes. D'oh!

It's all good.

vote-for26vote-against

LOL, I enjoy the irony of posting a "deal" like that on FB...

I should have posted it on deals.woot

oh... wait...

vote-for3vote-against

Daydreamer here. Sneaky little birthday brat!

vote-for5vote-against

I guess I'll have to keep on eye on twitter and moofi. It sold out so quickly that I have a feeling we will see more crap today.

vote-for7vote-against

I use FB, but can't check it on my work computer. Oh well. Guess I'll have to continue my quest for BOC-y goodness at another time.

vote-for6vote-against

Well, FB said "see it first" here, so I wonder if we will see it second somewhere else

vote-for4vote-against

missed it while I was in the shower. :( and I was on FB waiting right before.

vote-for6vote-against

FWIW here is the birthday crap "VIP" page. It hasn't been updated with a total yet so maybe this exact page will be active again later. http://www.woot.com/offers/crappiest-birthday-ever

vote-for8vote-against

what is this bookface you speak of?

vote-for25vote-against

Ok wait. Can't post Facebook deals (which I agree with), but they had a Facebook deal.
Hypocritical much?

vote-for7vote-against

Hmmm, I just got an email from WootBot about the Wootathon, and it ended with "P.S. And keep your eyes on the rest of the Woot empire today... What would a birthday be without surprises?". So is Facebook now part of the Woot empire???

vote-for6vote-against

Just saw this thread, and that's the first I heard of it... I do "like" Woot on FB, but can't check from my work computer. I check my feed once or twice during the day on my phone, but didn't see this until it was already long gone. Oh well. Still kind of a cool idea. Hope there is more later.

vote-for4vote-against

Want an Amazon.woot BOC? Take $8 and go to your local dollar store. Pick out a bag, add 3 random crappy items. Now grab a second bag, and add 3 more random crappy items! You have 2 BOCS for the price of one, and you probably got something better than you would in the BOCs on woot these days.

vote-for4vote-against

Nope, no facebook at work and phone is not conducive to fast wooting.

vote-for3vote-against

Clicked on it and still couldn't get crap even when they announced the special crap had just been posted. It's just not a good day for crap, I guess.

vote-for4vote-against

@wickedd365: I would vote you up 50 times if I could!

vote-for3vote-against

I missed out on a different link, too. Not sure when it was live as I found it too late.

Edit: Duh, looked at the sales stats. It sold in the 1:00pm Woot hour.

vote-for10vote-against

@wickedd365: we only linked back to our site on Facebook. It's a link we could have posted anywhere and did not require you to have a Facebook account to access.

vote-for6vote-against

Nope, I did not. Not allowed to check FB at work. And, while the smartphone is all well and good, it's defanitely not fast enough to catch a deal like that. Especially with the spotty service it gets where I work. Oh well, another time maybe :/ Or, more likely in my case...never. Such is life, moving on!

vote-for4vote-against

there was a pinterest crap as well, diff url

vote-for5vote-against

@baybei: Yeah, I have a feeling i'm going to miss out on them all if they keep up with the social sites.

vote-for4vote-against

Twitter crap came and went in about a minute.

vote-for2vote-against

I guess I will miss out on all of these today as I do not have a smart phone and social networking is blocked at work

vote-for3vote-against

I missed it, oh well, congratz to whoever did get something! Hope it turns out to be good!

vote-for11vote-against

Good lord, who has time to keep up with all of that and be watching the exact second that it was posted? This just seems to be pandering to folks that have nothing to do all day and can watch their social media accounts.

vote-for3vote-against

There's another one on the deals.woot facebook page right now!

vote-for3vote-against

happened again 8 min ago.. ugh couldn't get it in time

vote-for3vote-against

Yep, just picked it up. I felt very weird about buying a bag of crap when there were no servers exploding, not sure how I feel. Just gotta hope it is good!

[edit] it is sold out now...maybe

vote-for3vote-against

none of these kind of accounts. hope I score in the next woot-off! make it my 100th! unless I buy some wine or something for my kids before then. or a plus...or....

vote-for3vote-against

Got the message on my FB page but it was already sold out.

vote-for2vote-against

@wisenekt: True dat. Sometimes work gets in the way of fun for some of us.

vote-for2vote-against

at this point I've missed out on so many I'm numb from all the loosing

vote-for3vote-against

Since I don't know what you're talking about, I likely didn't get it.

vote-for2vote-against

Wow. Maybe a little warning shot next time?

I am marking this on my calendar for next year.

Woot! Gonna wait 365 days for this!

vote-for1vote-against

looks like they just did another facebook one

vote-for2vote-against

Just got the 2nd facebook one.

vote-for1vote-against

I just got the latest Facebook one, too. Just happened to open FB right as the link was posted. For once, right place, right time! Yay!

vote-for-1vote-against

Facebook is a social disease!

vote-for3vote-against

Just missed the second FB one, due to needing to get a drink of water. Missed most of the others due to being at work, or driving home from work. Why woot? Why you make me cry?

vote-for1vote-against

I have in-laws visiting from three different states and everyone arrived today. What were they thinking to schedule their visits on Woot's birthday?!!! I was able to pop in early this morning and had the Wootathon streaming while I dashed about getting ready, but have missed out on the BOCs and am about to crash now so I guess I'll miss any more that might pop up. Ah, well. I guess I'll just have to reconcile myself to missing the fun. At least I have stacks of carp I've saved from previous Woot-offs (and other impulsive online buying binges) that I can gift to the visitors in an effort to make room for more carp!
