And here I was all ready to go to bed.
If you act within the next 27 seconds, you might be able to buy some Dell speakers.

I clicked on the speakers the very second they were up - no luck. '
I guess their refurbished servers on their refurbished bankwidth just can't take it.
Now it's those (%*$*#@ home theater wiring kits from the evil Monster.

The speakers sold out while i was fumbling for the 3 digit security code on my CC... damn woot...
I did get a projector screen this morning from them tho...

Dang, hours later their servers are still slammed. I am guessing more and more people have heard about woot (judging by the stats they have) and now when they have a woot-off, good luck. I went to refresh the screen to see if one item was sold out - by the time I got back on, the next item was sold out.

Cool, I think I just got a 250GB WD Caviar drive for $49. Not bad. I need the storage....
Just processing the CC. I hope the server does not melt in the meatime. :sleep:

DAMMIT! A day Bag o' Crap and of course the servers are slammed and it's sold out before I even know it's going on. Stupid Thursdays.:splat:

They are still wooting off! Hope you all don't have any work to do!

just a helpful hint... if you use firefox, you can use this plugin: http://reloadevery.mozdev.org/
You can set it to auto-reload every XX seconds. So I always have it refreshing in the background, and just check occasionally to see what the latest item is.
