I got the jump on it and my order page is still spinning, so I take that as a no, even though I did get the payment entered...so close.

I was on it within one full second, with three browsers open, and never could get past the "page loading" stage.

@xarous: How in the world did you just join today and already have a rep of 100?

@magic cave: I think the "three browsers" is detected by the server...same IP tryin' to get through...this is my fourth to date, and all I do is run Wootalyzer (set to open BUY page for every Woot-Off item) and have fast fingers, a prayer to the Woot Gods when it pops up.

@magic cave: Stoopid bugs.

@shawnmiller I thought this was fixed, or is it still a browser/client-side classification?

@bmw66x: Good tips for next time. Thanks!

@xarous: Yeah, I saw your deal on Hobby Lobby had zero votes (and sent you a nag over it). Can you not vote at all? Yes, bug is stupid. Very.

@magic cave: No problem. Good luck to you in June then.

@shrdlu: No voting allowed on questions, nor on deals, but previous votes still carry.

I stupidly put in the wrong cvs code.

Bag of Crap 5/11/11

To paraphrase my little brother:

@bmw66x: I had two open and one hit the jackpot but I am not sharing my secrets with anyone :)

I had a problem that I wrote in about. It was an unusual glitch that I had never seen before and it was a problem on Woot's end and they kinda blew it off. But when it comes to the BOC, I kind of expect them to be wary of people trying to get one after the fact

"I was on the "click this stupidly large button" page and it was going through, when suddenly it jumped me back to the credit card page and said "There was an error placing your order. Please verify that all the fields below are correct and try again." I can understand if the website crashes or if I entered my CC info wrong, but this was just odd. Everything was right and I had entered my CCV. I'm pretty sure that if I forget the CCV it doesn't let me to the next page, so what gives?"

And they ignored the end of my comment saying "maybe you entered the CCV wrong"
Complaining is fun.

@linkage89: Good for you. May the crap be with you.

I had Wootalyzer and Wooters.us running in IE9, so 2 screens popped up. I also clicked "Buy" on one of those screens so I had 3 tabs open. I waited patiently for the order screen to open, entered my 3 digit code on all 3 screens and a few seconds later, there it was... "Your Order Is In". The other 2 screens defaulted back to the main Woot page. I don't think I've ever seen the Woot servers respond so quickly. Also, I've learned not to be "click happy" because if you interrupt your initial request, it throws you to the back of the line. I really don't care what I get, the waiting is the fun part. :-)

@missellienc: Shhh. Your telling everyone the secret. Some people are just impatient. Just give it time. Refreshing just puts you at the end... but please... keep refreshing.

vote-for1vote-against

I refreshed my page and got a really good jump on it....but I put my password in wrong. :'( this would have been my first BOC I cant tell you how excited I was when I saw the picture! But then I had to go and put my password in wrong!

I took a HUGE dump earlier today. It was amazing.

The bag of crap always comes up during the east coast afternoon commute - why does Woot hate the east coast so much?

Just look at the map; very very few wooters from the eastern time zone got in on the BoC (as usual).

No crap! I want some crap! I need some crap!
