It would seem all the woot API checkers are not functioning, including mine. I dont believe this is a banned situation, as the outage seems to be across the board.
The API is simply returning empty strings, and is html doc type.
I have tried accessing the api, and asking others to try and access the api URL (www.woot.com/salerss.aspx) and some can access while some can not.
I have noticed this. Problem I have with it is that woot has either decided to ban people or delete salerss.aspx so that all the trackers which follow the rules crash and all the trackers which do not and just scrape the home page work. Makes me wish I just would have not paid attention to the rules. Guess that’s what I get for respecting Woot’s wishes. =(
