There will be no BOC. There will be no games. They will, however, be selling more Dyson vacuums. Yeah, you should probably go to bed early. Nothing to see here.

vote-for13vote-against

They will, only the fools part will be that all the bags that are sent to any address other than mine will be sent to me. Make sure you set the address to mine ahead of time so it gets sent to you.

vote-for4vote-against

I'm pretty sure there will be. I just got my first one during the last wootoff, and it hasn't arrived yet. What kind of stuff has arrived in a BoC? (It isn't April 1st yet, so no lying!)

vote-for23vote-against

Last year you had to play the crapshoot game and it was terribly difficult for video game failures like me. Hopefully this year they do something different.

vote-for13vote-against

I actually heard that Woot! was gonna be down tonight from 11 pm through around 3 am Central Time, so don't even bother getting on to see the new item.

vote-for2vote-against

y'all are just mean
why won't ya let some of us that have never gotten a boc get one?

vote-for4vote-against

Man, I forgot all about that. Sucks...I'm tired as hell too. Yet now I want to stay up another two and a half hours to try and get a BOC.

Someone wanna just win me one?

vote-for6vote-against

Yeah, there'll be a BoC. You'll find it in a hidden link in the description of a recently-expired Moofi item.

@moosezilla: I've never gotten one. The closest I got was during the last Woot-Off when they had that error that let you get all the way to the end but wouldn't let you finish the transaction. I'm just tryin to ensure my winning of one.

I just flipped my Woot! calendar to April and it has a VERY INTERESTING statement for tomorrow, April 1st: "Woot blows the Internet's mind yet again (2012)". Wonder what they have in store???

vote-for5vote-against

@eghazali: I have only gotten one, and that was during last year's april fools event. Every BOC has at least one thing that counts as a "bag" and at least 3 "craps" in it. Mine had 3 reusable shopping bags in cute black&white patterns (they made awesome enviro-friendly packaging for x-mas presents for my friends. I also got a few of those ear warmers that wrap around the back of your head, a few earphone splitters, a battery operated little snowman with a 2" screen in the belly so you could upload digi-pictures and 3-4 reusable baggies that folded up into tiny baggies that look like strawberries. Also some of those fancy wood planks for grilling meats/fish. So really mine happened to be a bag of bags & crap.

If they did the letter would be 15 pallets of loosing mega millions tickets :)

vote-for8vote-against

honest question: has a boc ever been anywhere besides the original woot! site? i know sometimes they are hidden.

vote-for9vote-against

@moosezilla: honest answer: moofi had one once.

vote-for7vote-against

@moosezilla: When they still did happy hour (1 hour woot off at 5pm on random weekdays) they did one there during a woot off.

vote-for6vote-against

@moosezilla: They had one on Moofi and one on Happy Hour beyond that I don't think so.

vote-for4vote-against

@moosezilla: The somewhat distant memory called the Woot Happy Hour used to have one, too, on occasion.

vote-for7vote-against

I am just glad I don't have to go to work in the morning. Last year's crapshoot did a number on me and I was a narcoleptic at work.

vote-for7vote-against

Hmmm... havent found it yet, if someone else does PLEASE post here.

vote-for7vote-against

Guess not. Just a writers strike leading to a robot who makes writeups. Usual Woot stuff...

vote-for10vote-against

Okay I just deleted my question about looking for the BOC since it looks like this is the BOC location.

I deleted it in favor of keeping things centralized.. so lets not go making 10 "Did you think there was going to be a BOC?" questions :)

vote-for5vote-against

searched all the writeup links, nada. still looking, figure ill give up soon though. looks like bust

vote-for7vote-against

@sadsephiroth: I looked at

The writeup
The Blog
The "Strike"
The linked text
The pictures
The Kondami Kode
The Game

vote-for6vote-against

Is there something in that quiz? I can't seem to log a vote.

vote-for4vote-against

The timestamp for the strike blog is 8 am... hmmm

vote-for4vote-against

Server errors indicate BOC like activity, but I haven't found it yet, errors on the vote page.

vote-for4vote-against

Pretty sure I might have found a clue. I'll let you know in 14-15 minutes.

vote-for6vote-against

What about the odd pricing on woot and home.woot?

vote-for6vote-against

Woot site is going crazy slow.

I just sent a message to PterodactylPenis@woot.com for the lulz

and it came back, sigh

vote-for4vote-against

@jsoko: Didn't see that one.... so what's it all mean! LOL

vote-for8vote-against

What if the prices add up to an IP address that holds the location of the BoC?

@carl669: QR code says "the secret cannot yet be revealed, but come back in April"

vote-for4vote-against

@carl669: Nope, woot calendar QR code not working yet...

Edit: Somehow, @linuxtrance can post less far into the future than I can.

vote-for4vote-against

@cowboydann, where are your mighty powers of prophesy when we need them?

vote-for4vote-against

qr code
This secret cannot yet be revealed!
Turn back, seeker of knowledge! Humanity is not ready to learn what we have to teach! But come back in April for the fourth chapter of The Secrets of El Arenque Rojo!

vote-for4vote-against

@captainsuperdawg: That was my thought, but do you add them or arrange them?
Or did they make it that way just to mess with us?

vote-for4vote-against

Can I post the QR code address (where it points to?) or is that a nono since you didn't get the calendar?

vote-for4vote-against

@sadsephiroth: Nobody search for The Secrets of El Arenque Rojo.. TRUST ME!! Its pointless

vote-for4vote-against

the 4th calendar post is up on wine.woot but they must have not redirected the QR code yet.

vote-for4vote-against

@linuxtrance: look at the time stamp on the email from Rutledge. 8am. i'm thinking 8am, on the page from the QR code

vote-for4vote-against

@linuxtrance: My calendar is at my desk at work!! I can't get to it til Monday morning :(

vote-for4vote-against

@sadsephiroth: Was regarding the QR code. There's absolutely nothing there though, just the normal jibberish
