Sale’s over???

ha ha, i think they have the u missed it button every day at 11:55, and forgot to take it off for the woot off!!!


#4

was there some goofy system override 'cause we’re close to the witching hour?


#5

LOL It’s probably an auto-loader, every day just before midnight, “the sale is over, you missed it” shows up, most likely to prevent anyone from purchasing something and taking their sweet time about it – that might cause errors in Woot’s system due to timecodes.

During wootoffs this should probably be disabled…

I just finished wooting for the netgear router and came back to find “Sale’s over…”

My guess is that this is the next produxt in the woot-off, but they ended the woot-off a few minutes before midnight cst, so the product had a 0 minute woot time.

Very annoying, as I wanted one of these.


#7

Damn, I just bought one of these today from BestBuy for $30.


#8

Don’t go to sleep if you want this.

If you do go to sleep, BestBuy has a Dynex enclosure (USB2.0 only) on sale for $29.99 instead of its usual $55 right now.

Don’t worry bout missing this one, I got one (same brand and model) a while back and it failed inside of 1 week. It is junk


#13

Anybody that picked up an extra one of these want to sell it…if so contact me at deltax153@aol.com

This was a great price for this type of enclosure. They don’t really go any lower than $20 each, although you can find some for a little less on eBay. Those, however, are usually only simple USB models with no fan. This one was a good buy because it had both USB & IEEE1394 for only $20. There are many other reasonably priced enclosures on www.meritline.com, such as this one, for about $20 (plus shipping), mentioned last time in the forum for the 250GB HDD. That one’s only USB, however it has a fan to keep the drive cool. I’d personally prefer one with a fan versus one with both interfaces.

Edit: Bah, this is the first time I’ve tryed using the BBCode to make a hyperlink. It didn’t work out too well, but it’s not difficult to edit out the real link from what the forums have generated.

hehe, I got 3, I saw this pop up when it hit midnight, error in the woot server showed me it was next, or soon to be next, so I spent the next 30 mins just trying to see it come up, Im glad I got em, this is PERFECT for me with the firewire, thanks woot!


#16

rrrrrrr…

needed … one …

always … miss … woots …

(sigh)


#17

same here man. I saw the HD come up, and then the enclosure. So I figured it was some kind of error and that it would be coming up eventually.


#18

Tracking number recieved! Due in the 15th. Of course FedEx doesn’t say they actually have it yet, just the data hoo-ha.


#19

Ditto.


#20

Mine says it was due today, but I don’t think that is going to happen. So tomorrow it is.
