Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[Holy crap!] It's another WOOT-OFF!

It's that time of year again guys. The time where most weak-willed souls are stripped of the contents of their wallets.

http://www.woot.com

and the mirror site to help the main bogged-down server:

http://www.archonwarp.com

But what is a "Woot-Off" exactly?
Woot.com wrote:
I see some orange flashing lights on the main page – what do they mean?
No, you aren't seeing a side effect from your allergy medication. You have found a Woot-Off, a short term frenzied mutation of our product posting procedure. In Woot-Off mode, a new product is launched immediately after the sellout of the previous deal. There is a half-Woot-life of 12 hours maximum on any product within a Woot-Off that does not sell out. The number of Woot-Off items, sequence, and quantity will not be announced. When Woot-Off mode is over, the orange lights will disappear and our normal schedule will resume. Depending on its success, this may be a mode we would go into once or twice a month for a relatively short duration of time (24-72 hours generally.)

Will update the OP as long as I'm awake.

    Good thing I refreshed the index before submitting my WOOT OFF post, because mine sucked. What's the chances they'll unleash a Wii during this?

    0. More likely to sell off some PS3 surplus. ^_^

    Edit: Wow, cheap home theater system.

    Anyone know anything about this system? I'm not really in the market for one, but that's a decent price depending on the quality, and I wouldn't mind having one.

    Edit: too late anyway. No real loss.

    Here we go lads, next item. Media player.

    EDIT: Rather, a crappy-looking i-brand portable media player. 2 gigs for 90 bucks? We went from one killer to another.

    Those went amazingly fast, and they were a very good deal. They're regularly $40 a pop, and you got two sets it seemed. Might've gone for them if I had more time. Hopefully this GPS will be a woot-off killer while I get some sleep.

    Edit: Gone already? Damn.
