OOhhh! Self-adhesive Gemstones! I'm jealous :)

Nice haul. Mine hasn't arrived yet, but I'm hoping it does in the next few days.

Nice haul and no on receipt and full disclaimer...I just got mine shipped out today

vote-for11vote-against

I got both of mine. I did not, however, remember to bring the stupid cord for the camera with me so I can't show off all of my stuff.

Both of my crappers were incredibly generous. I was just laughing all weekend over some of this stuff.

I sent out all 3 of mine this morning... my vacation and getting back on Friday night/missing the Saturday Mailman and the Columbus Day holiday delayed my shipment :(

But you should receive them soon:

Nothing here yet and no tracking info, but I am mostly excited to hear whether @dougerus likes the carp I sent him! Scheduled to arrive no later than Friday so I guess I'll have to wait a while.

I posted the wrong picture above. I didn't double check the number that I uploaded. Let's see if I can manage this time....[IMG][/IMG]
Strange, this link does not show right away. It did the same above and I just thought it was because I am working on an ancient machine that is not upgraded. I can see the image above now though so that is not it.

@pattiq: So the USM Golden Eagles shirt wasn't part of your BOC? Darn! Most of my family went to college there.

@belyndag: That picture is crap I sent to some unlucky soul in a earlier exchange. I got a good deal on some t-shirts and sweatshirts and that was one of the doubles. I glanced at the thumbnails and selected the wrong one to upload.For some reason the photo did not show fast enough to fix in the edit window.

I received a lovely Box of Carp from @cowboydann today! Can someone tell me how to post a picture? In the meantime, here is a list:
Cactus Cooler Orange Pineapple Soda
Sunflower bag
ibone squeaky dog toy
one shower curtain ring
101 Dalmations VHS tape
book - The Alphabet of Manliness
Spitball Procrastination Dartpad
Cafe Bingo and Bar Crawl Bingo Pads
Thanks a bunch @cowboydann! Love your crap!

vote-for8vote-against

@hot72chev: Oooh! One shower curtain ring? Dang! I needed one of those!

Seriously, it never dawns on me to include things like that and they make the BOCs SOOOOO much more fun! I got in a rush to mail mine to @dougerus and later found several other things I wanted to include. Ah, well. Next time.

I haven't heard anything about the BOC coming my way, and anticipation is building! If one of you got my name, please let me know!

I received a Box of Cactus Coolers from @cowboydann yesterday, chilling in the fridge awaiting my return from work today to try it.

My sent box is out for delivery as I type and hoping the box I am to receive is on its way

I am going to try to post pictures here. I got it to work on wootersrus, so I am feeling extra-optimistic. We'll see how long that lasts.... : )

I am going to write out a list tonight but couldn't wait to post the pictures.

I see pictures so I count that as a win.

I am planning on keeping a few of these wonderful craps and then passing some on in the next exchange or to friends and relatives at holidays. When I was unpacking the boxes, when I wasn't laughing, I was saying "Ooh! Mine!" so it will be hard to winnow it down.

Maggie3052 included a nice note. It is nice to know that someone else has a problem with "mystery boxes", too.

vote-for7vote-against

@hot72chev: So what I did was I put the pictures up on imgur since I don't have an account with any hosting services. It had a bunch of options for links to copy -- I think I probably should've copied different ones for wootersrus and woot but anyway.... Then I copied the link into the message using http://ipaddress within an "[image] [/image]" tag, substituting img for image.(I can't remember how to escape this text so it doesn't link to the actual image.) (And even without the img tags it is still linking to the image. Argh!)

There is also an official Woot! Posting Guide but I cannot remember how or where I found it.

cf cf
vote-for7vote-against

@cf: I use tinypic.com to post images here from my computer. Follow the directions there, including the capcha thingie, and use the "IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards." Actually, once you've cut and pasted that over here, you don't really need the [ IMG ] parts. If you are inserting an image from another website, just right click on it, select Properties, and copy the address here.

I think that's it. Am I missing something?

vote-for6vote-against

Oh, I am not following you people at all. Can ya dumb it down for us less tech savvy old people? I did figure out how to post a youtube video both here and over on regular Woot, so I'm not totally technologically challenged. I would love to show you the pic of my @cowboydann bag of cats!

vote-for5vote-against

@hot72chev: I use tinypic.com also. No need to join or anything. Do you have the picture on your computer? If so, do you know where it was saved and the name of the file? If you are that far, go to tinypic.com There is a button to browse your computer for the file. Find it and select it. Click the Upload Now button. The next page will give you a list of links to copy and paste. I use the one for forums and blogs same as belyndag. On my computer it took a few minutes to show as more than an X on the board but it did show.

vote-for6vote-against

@hot72chev: Maybe this will help. The important part of www.tinypic.com looks like this:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You will use the browse section to find the image you want to upload from your computer. (The "Tags" section isn't necessary.) Then you will click "Upload Now" and might have to answer a question or a captcha thingie to prove that you're human. Then you will see something like this:

Copy and paste the information from the section called "IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards" into your DW comment, remove the [ IMG ] and [ /IMG ] to clean it up, and there you go!

Judging from jsimsace's photo above, it looks like there are other "mystery box" people out there. I recognize a couple of things that I have gotten in my orders. : )

My first thought was wouldn't it be awesome to have a wootizenicon swap meet somewhere. Then I thought that it actually would be a very bad idea.

@cf: LOL! Thanks! I'm only a techie wannabe so let's see if my attempt to explain can help @hot72chev post some pix before we decide how well I did.

Today is Friday so @dougerus should be getting his crapalicious box from me today. I can't locate him over on the regular Woot site so I can't send him a PM with tracking info, and I haven't heard anything about a box coming my way, so I am hovering here for updates. Guess I'd better get back to work. Well, back to retirement, which is about the toughest work I've ever done.

@okham: I did, already using the galaxy tab case for my Kindle Fire (shh don't tell) and the math game will be great for my boys to help reinforce what they are learning in school, they boys also love the Woot! shirts as sleep shirts so thats good since I have 3 already and they fight over the odd one when the others are in the wash and with me being a caffiene addict the via packs will come in handy

@pattiq Hey....that boc looks awfully familiar. Are you sure that isn't the boc I sent you last year? If not, it's kind of scary how someone else sent you the exact same crap. :P
