I wonder if I should buy extra for the local people in case it sells out by morning. The bar is moving slowly...

I'd be really surprised if it sells out before morning, although I'm totally guessing.

By the way, nice prescience, Sparky!

When it started, Wootalyzer had it around 2 hours. It's now around 2:50 in time, so it might last til morning.

Thanks all. It just seemed time, and then the error popped up, which seemed to be another indication.

Well, I sent out the EWN Woot-Off notice an hour or so ago. Can't help it if it sells out quick.

It didn't sell out in the traditional sense. The Woot-off sales indicator hadn't even reached 50% sold before it switched.

Juvie: 30+24+4; Sellout: 6+7+0
Rags: 3+2+3
Drunk: 69+94+15 wine, 20+29+4 non-wine
Rugrat: 0+0+0; Refunded: 2+3+1
(as of 2011-03-02)

Couldn't have sold out. Didn't bounce or anything. Coding error, most likely. I bet it will be back after the tea. Certainly hope so. I am thinking about buying another threesome on my second account...

Did you buy any extra? Came on and sold out while I was fast asleep.

EDIT: OK, I hope it was the new W-TH offer, not part of the woot-off and I will watch for it to come back. Though, it will likely be like most of the offers so far this year. No shipping to CT.

Saw wine bottles come back up and almost hit buy before I realized that there were three of them, and not Ty Caton.

Bring back the Ty, so the East Coast has a shot.

Okay really, I was told if I started showering regularly and using deodorant and brushed my teeth people would want to be around me. Yet everyone has run off!

I'm here Bhodi. And yes, it's a real wine woot off. We're trying to do this whole "budget" thing at my house, so I have to be real careful not to buy everything that comes up.
On another note, we drank the Mumm Cuvee M last night. It was really interesting. I liked it, but I don't think I'll buy it again, as there are other things I like way more.

Ran out of room for the wines, and can't think of a good quote for now

Yeah, budgets suck. Mine is strict this year and I'm going to try to buy very very little. I grow tired of having car payments so the goal is no extra spending and pay them off by the end of the year. Wont' happen as I'm weak willed, but hey, it's February and I've done good so far

Lack of shipping to CT should help you to buy less.

So, I can't figure this out on the new facebook. I used to be able to view JUST posts from certain applications. Like if I wanted to view just postings about Mafia Wars, I could. Now I can't figure out how to do it. So....how do you do it?

Can't help you there. I don;t do any of those facebook game things. No Mafia Wars, NO Farmville, nothing. When my daughter gets up, I'll ask her for you.

Excellent!

In random news: This is rather shocking I can't help but think there's a fair number of good people here getting fired for no reason.

Not sure, doesnt' seem to list the games. But if I click on games I can see the games but if I click the name of the game it just takes me to the application fan page thing. Though I can see the individual friends that play said game and visit their page, but I used to be able to just sort the news feed to show only those posts pertaining to a certain game/application.

Well, a 3% hike in testing scores is pretty pathetic if it's a low performing school.

I looked around, but don't see it anymore. Looks like they removed that feature. That was nice to have.

Oh, and don't forget to let us know when you go to lunch today and/or tomorrow.

We can use the EWN to let everyone know the Bunch of Crepes is imminent.

And procrastination pays off!! Got my "Procrastinate" T-shirt for $3 less. And one for my daughter.

EDIT: First order did not go through. Tried again and got a server error. So I switched to the other computer and it is still processing.

Wonder if I will end up with three orders?

It did have CT listed early on. I almost ordered, as I have not had the Twisted Oak. Glad I decided to be budget conscious, since I am not so angry that another wine cannot ship here.
