What kind of servers power a woot off /boc?

With all the hupla about Ticketmaster and Taylor Swift tickets , I was wondering how many server instances are used during a woot off?

They’re powered by guinea pigs.

Oh, and interns.

Woot uses an old 286 with one meg of RAM. During a BOC sale, they hit that trusty turbo button for that extra oomph.

I often wonder if those are masters and not servers.

It’s because of your past experience, isn’t it?

I suppose I could float you the $75.

Ok but I’ll probably just keep the $75

Oddly enough, that corresponds to my yearly spending on Woot.
