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!

It's that time again. Woot-off

    I actually considered it briefly. My monitor's base is getting old and it won't stand full height without slowly collapsing over the course of a day. Plus, it's a bit low even at full height.

    I can't imagine who is buying this. Do they even make LCDs with no stand?

    No but some of the shittier ones aren't terribly adjustable. That's really the only market I can see for this.

    They should have just put this in the Bag of Crap. This has at least another hour on it.

    It seems like the only way to come out on top of a woot deal is to get lucky on a furb. And by lucky I mean have it last more than a few months.

    I think the best I could hope for now is a cheap wifi device that is compatible with the XBox 360.

    Man this is a long one.

    Also, unless I am mistaken, a distinct lack of Roombas. Could they have finally run out?

    Ran out? They're probably the ones running the woot.

    Seriously. If I ever adopt kids they will either stare out the window on drives or bring a damn book. Reading is good for you.

    Gameboy/DS if they saved up for it themselves.

    Goddamn they might be going for three days this time... I can't see them ending it in the middle of the night.

    Maybe they just bought out another liquidator, or something.

    Dear God, please let the shitty gaming headset end and something else come up.

    I did buy the mouse though... if it dies in 90 days I'll send it back, if not I got a cool mouse for 1/3 the price :D

    I prefer http://woot.dswebhost.net/ because it shows the percentage left in the title so it shows up on the start menu. I wish it had the estimated time feature though.

    you're in line, if a woot becomes available.
    we're basically sold out, but if someone ahead of you gets denied, we'll sell it to whoever's in line.

    why oh why did I hesitate on reviewing my info... :P

    This one seemed to last longer than most. But I am done trying to get them.

    I don't know why I can't load it when other people obviously could. All I did was type in my card security code, hit 'I want three' and the buy button. 5 seconds tops.

    It even said it was fucking processing. But then it stopped responding and I've yet to get an e-mail.

    I swear people are using bots or something to get them at this point, I started when it first appeared, within a second.

    I kinda wish they'd just stop doing the BOC at this point.

    Did it go from shitty kitchen dvd player to butt vibrator, or was there something in between?

    I'm honestly surprised they haven't jacked the price up. Considering how many of the fuckers they sell, they could probably triple their profits just by bumping them up to $3 apiece. I'm sure people would still pay it.

    EDIT:: Also, I'm way more tempted by this Butt Kicker than I should be.

    Yeah, a Bag 'o Crap that sold out in about 25 seconds.

    I pressed reload, saw the BOC, posted here, reloaded again, and they were half gone. Then their server went down, and they were all gone.

    I kind of wonder what would happen if they did 3 sessions of BoCs during a woot-off. If you bought BoCs you then couldn't buy any more until the next woot-off. Maybe it'll defer some traffic?

    They need to save up more of them so people have longer to react... it's ridiculous how impossible it is to get one at this point.

    Or get a server that can handle the load.
