I've heard of something that woot.com does, called a woot off? I can't find it on their site. Can anyone explain this to me and when it usually occurs?

Usually once a month they get rid of all their inventory and sell another item after the first one sells out.

In recent history, most of the WootOffs have started on Thursday (at 12:01 am). They often manage to leak some advanced notice of one coming.

Here's another link to some more info:
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.)
