Well, I finally got in on a deal at Woot!

They were selling their “bag of crap” for a dollar tonight, and I was able to buy three of bags of crap (that is the actual product name) for $3, plus $5 shipping.

I almost didn’t get my order in. Woot’s servers were very bogged down, taking several minutes to load each page. Believe it or not, I figured out that IE was loading the pages faster than FireFox.

I actually didn’t think my order went through. I had all but completed the order when, after being told that my product was reserved and my credit card was being charged, the page returned the dreaded Woot “Server too busy” message.

Then, about 15 minutes later, a confirmation email arrived. I checked my bank account, and Woot took my money.

So, what will I get for my $8? Will it be a TV projector, a DVD player, and a home theater package; or will it be a USB fan, a package of AA batteries, and a shiny nickel? Only time will tell..

  1. Curse you! All I got was the “Server busy” message until the Sold Out! window appeared. :P

  2. I’m sorry you didn’t get a bag of crap, Wertz!

    I started ordering at 1:01, and I didn’t get my order placed until around 1:40 or so, I estimate.

    This is the third bag of crap I’ve tried to order, and the first time I’ve actually gotten through. I can’t wait to see what I get!
