@shawnmiller - It appears the chamber is not working as a queue. Gave the link to a coworker again today, they got the chamber. After at the chamber, they gave it to somebody else, who got right through. While the chamber does work correctly at making the servers not crash, I don't think it is putting people in a line as intended.

I'll get nothing and like it.

While I still refuse to use Facebook, but I discovered that I do actually have a Twitter account that I created back in 2008. I am following woot, but I suppose they found out and as a result are refusing to post any crap links there.

I was just going to post. Less than 15 minutes and it was gone. I just had to delay looking at Facebook. On the bright side, I'll have another shot tomorrow. It looks like they're posting the Craps in similar time windows.

@s21: I hung out in the chamber for awhile too. Twitter next?

@thedogma: At least it wasn't the few seconds to minutes of a normal crap!

@capguncowboy: I say! Are you accusing social media of SHENANIGANS?

OK, do you just have to sit on there and wait for one to pop up, or can you set it to notify you whenever they post anything?

@lichme: Out of curiosity, was Coworker #1 still viewing the Antechamber when Coworker #2 got straight through, or had Coworker #1 already purchased/seen the offer as sold out by the time Coworker #2 got in? It wasn't 100% clear from your comment. Thanks!

@riknik: Coworker #1 was still in the chamber waiting when Coworker #2 clicked the URL. Coworker #1 was also still waiting in the Chamber after Coworker #2 had successfully purchased crap. Coworker #1 never ended up getting any. Same thing happened yesterday, with 3 people that were waiting in the chamber, then the last guy to click it got it with no probs, while nobody else did.

Edit: Also as a test, I was able to open other tabs in alternate browsers while in the chamber and bypass it completely. As I already go crap this round, I didn't click the Place order button, but I could have. FF was in the chamber waiting, opened in Chrome and it went to purchase page.

My facebook page has exactly one post, from a year or two ago...maybe more. It reads "Still not using facebook".

Good luck to all those trying to snag a BoC.

@lichme: Thanks for the info.

We think that this system is "fairer" than letting it go to chaos and whoever manages to load the page will get the BOC. That said, we'll loop back around and make sure it's as fair as possible.

@riknik: I'm sorry but it should be first come first serve. That will always be the fairest. Everyone has the same chance to load the page, now the Antechamber gets to choose >:(
