What a horrible woot-off. Oh well.

I also missed the BoC.

I haven't gotten a BOC since 2006.

I can still brag and say I was there for the very first one though.

The BoC is THE Bag of Crap. It is.. a bag of crap. The bag is filled with crap in crappy condition that you buy for a pretty crappy price.

BOC = bag of crap.

The first one was a penny, since then it's been $1 per crap. You get one bag per order, so if you hit "I want three!" you get one bag and three craps.

The craps are random stuff the folks at woot decide to send you. Past items I've gotten:

DVD drive
Floppy drive
about 20 priority pucks
Flying monkey
stuffed panda bear
portable CD player
ZIP disk
a book
package of neon bendy straws

I heard of people getting big screen TVs and surround sound setups in them though, but that was a long time ago. I don't know if they do big stuff like that anymore, I don't keep track.

Who would buy me something if it comes up, and then allow me to send cash through the mail to them? I might stay up all night for this woot off, but I don't have an account, nor a way to pay them icon_cry.gif I have cash, and lots of it so don't doubt me, can even take pics if someone seriously wants to be my middle man icon_smile.gif

I'll know when I see it icon_lol.gif I don't have anything in particular, just browsing and if I want it i'll pick it up.

You better be up all night, I have school tomorrow and I am planning on being up all night, because i'm extremely bored at the moment.

Does the Woot Off last until tomorrow at Midnight?

Oh and Tim, if you catch a BOC, defiently pick me up a few sets, like 4-5 of them.

I forgot the whole BOC thing, was it $3 for one, but you get 3? Or what was it, the last time I read the description I confused the living crap out of myself.

Anything else I see that I want I will PM you right away.

No, I had a debit card, until I became a well known poker god, underage, and got caught. And no PayPal account for me, think I had one too, until the poker thing.

And if you get a chance at the BOC, grab me 5 please.

BOC you can buy 1-3. They are 1 dollar, so the logical thing is to buy the maximum of 3 and save on shipping.

Of note:

I forgot to mention I have a co-worker that hosted a Wootalyzer (woot tracker) mirror in our data center, last wootoff. He had to take it off line due to the absolutely massive amount of data flowing through the one box. He gave me the exact stats, which I forget now, but it seems to me that it was something like 75ish GB over a couple of days. When each request only requires 15k or so, that = a **** of requests!

Let's see: Valentine's Day, calendar stuff, podcasts, blog, Wine.Woot Labrats... yeah, that's about it for now. Oh, we could go on all day, but we're up to our esophagi in products to write about. End communique. This message will self-destruct when you hit the "delete" button. Until next time, much love from yer pals at Woot!

No Roomba's on this Woot-Off... That one sucked... I got the only thing out of all the woots that I would have bought, even if I saw it. Thought about the mechanic's set... but it sold out too quick.
