@catbertthegreat: It means only that I have disposable income, and a willingness to buy silly (mod edit: profanity) if it's under a certain dollar amount. Mini tripods for .49 each. Heat index monitors for .01 apiece. I don't even know where I set them down after I got them from the post office. Screaming monkeys. I love screaming monkeys.

Wearable sleepsacks that went straight to the local women's shelter. Toys from the kids.woot wootoff that did the same. I give myself that gift every xmas, and there is simply nothing that makes me happier. I've said it before. Money can indeed buy happiness, especially when the things that make you happy are simple.

This fabulous weather station: http://www.woot.com/Blog/ViewEntry.aspx?Id=3568

It's some simple entertainment, and I look forward to wootoffs (I'm far more likely to buy during a wootoff, just to see what the heck comes next).

I'm not so active on deals.woot. I have the urge to become more active lest my triangle decrease in colour rank. Curse your mind games, Woot!

How exciting to better tie the sites together and encourage more participation here. :)

Maybe slightly off-topic, maybe not: is it just me, or is the triangle next to your username at the top of deals.woot spaced a bit farther to the right than it was earlier?

@catbertthegreat: I also agree that this is more fun. There is more "guided" interaction over on regular woot (Wootbot, Jason Toon, that sort of thing), and more chaos here. It is in my nature to prefer chaos.

It is also far more interesting, and allows me to exercise the math skills and deductive reasoning.

@chris12345: Sweet. Nice catch on the space by the name at the top.

Perhaps beta badges will not be far behind...

@chris12345: Oddly enough, it would be the reverse for me. It gives me no reason to go over there on to the madhouse I call the other woot forums.

@shrdlu: Does this make you an unofficial queen of all woot forums. You hold both the black triangle and square. Do I now have to swear eternal fealty under your banner?

Posting just to see my "zero" status on deals.woot.

@chris12345: It is, I wonder if that is to add in the box and possibly add the triangle onto to the woot site at the top. Because there seems to be enough room for my Green Box there.

vote-for2vote-against

That's kinda cool. I am only 15 purchases from the black box status. I am waiting to spend my money on more useless stuff.

@ehalcyon: same here--i haven't been so active on deals.woot since the week after black friday, but now? THIS TRIANGLE MAKES ME FEEL SO... STRANGELY POWERFUL....

@jokofoto: hey, at least I'm not the only one wondering where they are. :P

@shrdlu: Interesting - I hadn't noticed before that the woot! rewriting doesn't happen on this site. Is a Bag of Crap really going to show up unmolested? Yes!

Oh. I guess that means I need to be more careful about language. :-(

vote-for1vote-against

@rhmurphy: You had best be careful about language in any case. I have a slightly used flounder, and I'm not afraid to use it. It has at least three more thwacks in it before I need to get a new one.

@baffles: I was about to ask the same thing, but as long as everyone else is confused, I'm fine.
