Ahhh, but do we need more words here, or to make everyone else as concise as our deals community?

So many things to consider.

I hope it looks like this:

Transform and roll out!

my workplace blocks whatever site woot is using to cache images. on bigwoot, i can hit "reply" and see the original picture hosting url, and often can do a cut/paste as a workaround to see the image. on here, though, there is no way for me to see the original url. if/when the deals forum s/w takes over bigwoot's forums, then it would suck to be me.

@no1:
Woot uses Amazon for image cache storage.
Right click the image and grab the image URL that way.

e.g. my image above is as so:
"http://imagecache.w00t.com/?url=http%3a%2f%2f3.bp.blogspot.com%2f-pBjCndfCpg%2fTw0tlAwSgI%2fAAAAAAAABqA%2fPWTb5ORlsbI%2fs400%2fpier.jpg"

plug the bold bit into this: http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/dencoder/

PITA, I'm sure.

@no1: crappy thing, ran out of edit time...
continuing:
well, poo, I can't get this thing to stop formatting my url...just grab the image url, plug the whole thing into that decoder, and grab the bit after "url="

@j5: thanks, i didn't know about the decoder site. it's still a little more of a pita than the old forum s/w, tho.

+1!

@j5: Would you prefer that I truncated the numbers to one decimal place? :)

Sounds like the schedule is secret, if it exists at all. :)

I'd pay a dollar to have my goopymart avatar recycled. Out of all five combinations I've got, I really didn't like any of them. To be honest..

@j5: You know.. I think I noticed that too.. but it clearly says hosted from Amazon without the encryptions. I think that was before "the great change" happened.
