I'm going to have to be alert. The world needs more lerts.

If there is one this go-round, I guarantee someone other than I will get one (But I hope I do too).

The BoC of the last woot-off was generally a large disappointment in terms of variation (and not a single letter has been reported yet):

Hopefully it isn't a sign of BoCs to come.

Got my first one last time...totally wasn't worth it. But I tried for 3 years or so, so the actual achievement was worth it, just not the goodies (which I totally expected).

@zarfus: THE HOLY CRAP COMMANDMENTS v3.0

I. Thou shalt expect nothing beyond ONE bag of some kind and THREE crappy items.

II. Thou shalt not whine and complain when some people’s crap turns out to be nicer than yours.

III. Thou shalt take a moment to consider whether you might be better off just not buying this crap.

IV. Thou shalt not expect better crap just because things are different this time. Crap is crap.

V. To paraphrase Stephen Stills, shalt thou not get the crap you want, want the crap you get.

I can't even get the crapshoot game to load. Hoping to succeed sometime before midnight

I think I deserve one as my job is ending Friday. I need something to look forward to and a Brassiere of Coconuts would help

@thedogma: crapshoot game? what am I missing out on here?

@thebopster: But I wasn't complaining. I was very happy to finally get one. I just said it wasn't worth it, so, answering the question: "no, I am not going to capture a BOC"

I'm vacationing in the mountains of North Carolina, so my choices are either to sit "home" with my netbook at the ready or do our scheduled touristing and just stop everywhere I see a "free wifi!" sign and check to see what's currently available.

Crummy choices either way, but I want another BOC!

I haven't had much luck lately. But if I'm around when the BOC shows up, I'll give it a try.

My last BOC from the last woot off, I waited 30 min after the infamous bag showed up on my screen. I actually saw the bag show up, clocked out for lunch, ate my lunch and then came back to my station and ordered it with "great success" :(Borat Voice)! :-)

I don't think you can really say if you are going to get one or not. You can try.

Im not even going to purchase one of it comes up this time around. The last 3 in a row have all been horrible. They seem to get much worse as each one comes. I dont even think I got $3 worth of stuff in my last BoC. Plus I only got 4 things instead of the 9 I should had gotten.

So yea.. going to let a couple pass before I start grabbing them again.

@lparsons42: Maybe there isn't one. When I logged into woot today, a popup came up, and there's the word "crapshoot" in the url. The last BOC I had a chance at was the one with the snail game or whatever it was. I was under the impression this was happening again, but perhaps not

@thedogma: Are you talking about that horrible April Fool's game they used last time? That was the biggest pile of fail I have seen in a long, long time. So many random problems with that game, plus the insufferable load times, I gave up after a few tries. I was surprised the BoCs ever sold out that time around.

@lparsons42: Yeah that's the one. Maybe it popped up for me in error. Would explain why it keeps timing out

There will be someone at work distracting me from the woot-off when the BOC comes around. It always happens that way.
