too many stupid people wanting to ask stupid questions at the same stupid time.

the servers all decided that if snapster wasn't required to be working anymore, they weren't gonna work either!!!

Too much robot love from @Wootbot's pR0n addiction.

Massive influx of traffic for the continuing adventures of Kiki and Wendel.

I could pretty much guess the near-million people refreshing the website at the same time causing heavy load towards the severs.

It's kind of like surfing the web with like 60+ tabs at once on your browser.. for most people this isn't possible.

Aliens. Space aliens. In tinfoil hats.

Wait, that's ME in the tinfoil hats.

I heard that one of the mods made fun of an old gypsy who cursed Woot's servers. Or maybe it was @snapster. Maybe he still has a key and wanted to wreck the place up a bit so everybody would run to him and be like "Oh @snapster! We're dead in the water without you, please come back!!" and then he would just brush it off like "Whatever," put on his sunglasses and walk off into the sunset, never to be seen again.

Also, +1 for using "asploded" instead of "exploded" in the title. You, sir/madam/robotic life-form, get the Captainsuperdawg Seal of Approval for this question. Congratulations, you earned it.

@captainsuperdawg: I take it you don't have kids yet? Asplode was one of our kid-isms in our home along with booby straps, booby crack, busghetti, goat, head egg, digigal clocks, butt neggid, and woobie pudge.
The kids were sick if they had a sore goat and a head egg. Woobie pudge was that fold of fat at the arm pit, and when the twins would strip down for a bath, they'd dance and sing their butt neggid song. Kids are strange, no doubt about it.

Giant squid attack.
We had a close call over on the southwest side of the DFW metroplex, I wouldn't be surprised if they got a direct hit over at Woot! HQ. Seems like a particularly active giant squid season this year.

If users were corgis, it was basically this:

Just add about a million more corgis.

Good theories. Perhas this also explains why I got two different emails from Woot! announcing the WootOff! in the wee hours of this morning, AFTER I received today's email.

I think when Snapster left he tucked a few servers into is saddlebags and hauled ass outta there.

We, like our servers... are fueled by donuts... we can out of donuts :(

Feel free to send us Top Pot donuts

@lavikinga: You're right, I don't have kids, but I know full well what "asploded" means. That's why I gave it +1 and my seal of approval. For taking me back to when I was a kid and used those words. For instance, the area between my hairline and eyebrows wasn't my forehead, it was my fourth-head and I had bellbows instead of elbows. I was just thanking OP for making me nostalgic.

@chadmoran: Good thing you didn't try and fuel your servers using Voodoo Donuts from Portland.
And, I'm grateful that Top Pot is opening more locations soon.

@captainsuperdawg: I was teasing :) And thank YOU! I had forgotten about belbows!

@thunderthighs: That was my original theory....that all of y'all went at the same time, a la the co-ed bathroom dancing in "Ally McBeal".....but then I decided that @snapster might have decided to sabotage the servers before leaving. That's what I might have done....hehehe. (J/K----I'd never do anything such as that--looks up at the ceiling and whistles innocently--and I'm sure Matt wouldn't do that, either.)

@joshobra: Uh-oh.....looks at how many tabs I have open atm.....

@joneholland: You just can't help but to smile when you see a Corgi...or a bunch of them....running toward you, can you? Thanks for that. :D
I especially like to watch them (Dachshunds, too) running through semi-tall grass.

@lavikinga: I know you were teasing. I think my reply to you seemed a bit snarky and I in no way intended that.

@reginafilangee: While I appreciate it, I'm by no means a great mind.

They took it down in order to swap out the bank of Commodore 64's for them new-fangeled Commodore 128's they pulled out of the B0C's they didn't sell.

@songbirdjhs: "Bank"? That implies that we had more than one...
