Well I guess that leaves me out…


First Page SuperStar!!!


Wow…that was fast… :smiley:




suck, that, dick, tracy


Damn, that was fast.


Too fast, and now the speaker’s are gone…arggggggg! Woot on!


Damn, I HAD one of these bought and clicked on “verify” instead of purchase (by mistake of course), and wouldn’t you know it that I got screwed. By the time I could get my password and security code, and click again…poof…gone. Way to make sure I clicked on the right button.

If one of you took three of these and want to part with one, let me know.


If any one has any extras of these that they decide they don’t want or nee please let me know. I will buy them off of you. You can reach me at mandy dot hunter at gmail dot com. Thanks



Dear Galloping Cow,

Your the BEST! Got one of these during the last Woot-Off and you answered my email about how to get an Omni Pass. Requested one from Targus on a Thurs. and received it on Sat., impressive. Anyway, followed easy instructions, photographed my fingers and now I too can sign on with any finger.

Thank yo so much for the quick response and help.

It’s a hoot, I love it. (and I posted in the right thread, how about that?)
